Thankful on Friday (a day late)

Today I am thankful for:

cool weather that allows me to keep my windows open
a little girl who just woke up from a 2 1/2 hour nap and said "momma"
my mom who listened to me whine on the phone this morning
my amazing husband, who I can't wait for him to get home
that dinner is already in the crockpot
and my little girl, who fed herself Chocolate Pudding w/ Avocado ala Deceptively Delicious, I got the recipe from a good friend:

My first blog post....

So I am pretty new to this whole thing, so I am not really sure how this will works, but I am excited to find out. I have been wanting a place to put my thoughts down and write about my days with Madison. The adventures of our life since having Madison have been amazing, I can't imagine any other way to live. I wish I would have started this journey sooner, to chronicle her life. As I type this she is trying to share her sippy of milk with her baby doll and running around saying "hi" to our dog Haley.

Madison has her 15 month check up today, I am nervous as always, because I feel like these appointments can be reflections on me, and how good a job I am doing with her. Madison has a handful of words: Hi, Momma, Dadda, Up, Baby, No, Uh-oh, Eye (she also find her eyes, or mine or our dogs) and All (for all done). Madison can also choo-choo for a train, moooo for a cow, neigh for a horse and vrooom for a motorcycle.

I can't believe she is getting so big. It feels like yesterday we brought her home from the hospital and now she's full on running, climbing and getting into everything. She's certainly the best thing that has ever happened to us. We are truly so blessed.
