As much as Eric and I were "prepared" for her to be born, our hearts were not prepared for how much we would love her. While this year has gone fast, it has gone just slow enough. It is amazing how much she has grown in the past year. Even though it has been a year, I remember the moment the doctor put her on my chest like it was 5 minutes ago. I'll never forget how clean she was and that she had a mouth full of fluid. Now, one short year later, she is saying words, eating everything under the sun, done with formula and bottles, crawling, pulling up and getting brave about letting go to stand.
We are so excited to celebrate Madison tomorrow with our family and friends. Among all the pink, purple and cupcakes tomorrow, all I want to remember in the end is that it was a special day for Madison and she feels how much she is loved by so many people.
