M's Birthday Session

There are like 100 (so I apologize, but this is as much as I could narrow down!) of these beautiful pics of our precious Madelyn in this tutu dress I made for her birthday. It was so much fun to go out just the two of us for this shoot.

I assumed once the dress came off that meant the shoot was over, but I just kept on shooting. I couldn't resist!

And for you Grammies (she has 6 including the greats) who still want more, you can see them ALL here (there are 3 pages.)

Madelyn's Family Birthday Dinner

(Video of Maddie on the saddle at Texas Roadhouse,
our favorite place for obvious reasons.
It is appropriate, she is a Texan after all!)

That's right, we have a 2 year old in the house again!
I can't believe how much she has changed. What a joy she is to all of us.


The bottle Madelyn is holding is for the baby she got...
Maddie's teething (isn't she suppose to have all her teeth by now?)
so she's chewing on stuff a lot.
Oh, and her hair kind of looks cut, but it's not. It's just in a ponytail... looks kind of cute short. Don't tell Gordon I may be getting an idea (:

Glowing Cont.

Could she BE any more beautiful...
I should also add that she deserves a prize for her strength and selflessness. She has hypermesis (sp?) and has only been to the hospital once (for fluid, due to a bug) because of her determination to take care of her little unborn bundle of joy (I'm not sure she would call it joy yet, but it will be!) I wish you could see in these pics how proud her husband, Sean, is of her for all she has been through and for her decision to deliver naturally with a midwife. Myself I think it is sad that we, women wanting to birth naturally, meet so much opposition. But it's the best decision I ever made as a woman for me and my baby and all I can say is, "You go girl!"
