Happy Birthday, Madeline!

Today we celebrated having Maddie in our lives for the past 3 years! She is one of the cutest, sweetest, funniest, most clever and definitely most chatty little girls we have ever met. She's always integrating new words and phrases into her vocabulary. Today she was helping Keith put together a play kitchen, which was a birthday/Christmas gift from Grandma & Grandpa Frank (thank you, it's awesome!). (As a side note, I love the design of this play kitchen because it looks like stainless steel, it's sturdy, and it's gender-neutral, so James could also play with it as he grows up.)

As Maddie was watching the kitchen being built, she kept saying over and over, "Wow, Dad! How fun is THAT?!" We couldn't help but crack up. Tonight she got to go to Toys 'R Us and pick out something with her birthday money, so she settled on a big tub of toy food and a kitchen mixer...now the stage is set for hours of fun!

We're having her birthday party on Wednesday night, so there will be more pictures to come!
