Madelyn’s Birthday Weekend !
Daddy, AJ, and Maddie before heading out to the playground
AJ, Eliot, and Caleb “hanging out”
Then on Sunday afternoon our families came over to our house to celebrate. I could not have hosted the event without my dear friend Audrey coming by to clean the house for us before we arrived (she even put chocolates on our pillows!) and my parents stopping by with necessary goodies (like milk) and unnecessary but much loved goodies (like welcome home balloons and doritos!). Thank you for your care for us! Maddie had a great time playing and visiting with some of her favorite people. And poor Aunt B…..well, Maddie didn’t want anyone changing her diaper but her! Thanks Bets. for your loving care for Maddie…you’re truly like a second momma to her! (And you’re welcome to come over here anytime to change a diaper or two!)
Maddie with her helmet and “bike”…just like Pappy!
Maddie opened her gifts on her birthday throne, courtesy of Great Aunt Debbie!
The biggest surprise gift was that BOTH Maddie and AJ were given ear infections!!! Seriously though, we are truly grateful that God allowed them to see their doctor and get meds before we returned to the PC. What a blessing to be able to have insurance for them during this time–we do not take that for granted anymore! You wouldn’t know by being with them that either kids have ear infections…to them, I think they enjoy their yummy ( or as Maddie says “nummy”) neon pink medicine!
