Madeline Grace: Fifty-Two Weeks

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET GIRL!!

You are cuddly, sweet, opinionated, bold, determined, stubborn, playful, goofy, slow to warm up, sassy, and fiercely loving.  You love to play peek-a-boo, read books (especially lift-the-flap books), hold your baby doll, push around the shopping cart, check out anything your sister is into, tackle your sister, and share whatever you are eating or chewing on.  You can walk, blow kisses, clap, point, shake your head, give hugs and kisses, and say "mama," "uh-oh," and "all done."  You have five teeth, and they have not come easily.  You go on hunger strikes any time you are teething, and have really yet to develop an interest in food.  You are sleeping in your crib and self-soothing like a champ, but you still wake up to nurse a couple of times a night (or more, if it's a rough night).  You like applesauce, cheese, bread, chili, and Chex.  Your love language is definitely physical, you love physical play, and you are happiest being held by Mommy.  You hate textures, such as any food other than bread or cereal, or grass.  The separation anxiety struggle is real, but you are the sweetest when you hug me and bury your head in my shoulder.  You don't smile much at strangers, but you are so goofy with your family and love to play games.

It's amazing to me that it's already been a year, but I also can't even remember what our family was like without you.  We love you, Madeline Grace!
