It's November 14!

That means it's this little darling's birthday!  (I almost used the word angel but those who know her well would surely scoff at the thought!)

Spunky little Madeleine turned three-years-old.  Here's how she felt about it in her own words,
 "Yippee ki yi yay!"  

Maddy wanted monkeys at her birthday brunch yesterday.  She definitely got them!

 What 3-year-old doesn't want coffee cake and baked eggs at their party?

Vilia looks suitably impressed with Maddy's big number.

 What did Madeleine want more than anything? (Besides a pony of course.) - Scissors!  And, if Mommy and Daddy are dense enough to buy a 3-year-old scissors for her birthday, they will have to learn to tolerate little bits of paper confetti strewn all over the house.  A small price to pay for the look of sheer delight on her face when she opened them.

Maddy cuddled up in her new sleeping bag pillow pet...

 ...and banged the tune right out of the glockenspiel from her cousins.

My favorite pic. of the day - a look at the party through Madeleine's eyes. 

Today Madeleine took cupcakes to daycare...

...and celebrated at our favorite Mexican restaurant.  Can you tell she was thrilled by the sombrero?  P.S.  Her big sister would NEVER want this to happen on her birthday, but Madeleine ate up the attention.

As Madeleine turns three today we can't help but be so thankful that this sassy, happy, expressive, sensitive, brainy, loving, hip-hop dancing sprite is our little girl.  So, even though she tried to send me to time-out for not getting her snack quickly enough this afternoon, we wouldn't change one curly hair on her sweet little head.  We love you Maddy!

This is a beautiful blog, Aubrey. You tell wonderful stories with your picture choices and words. Your children are so lucky to have a mom who chronicles their life; my boys LOVE having me read aloud from my diaries of their childhood . . . you know, from so many years ago!! :)

Happy 3rd Birthday, Maddie! Didn't realize our little ones are just a month apart. Amazing we were each blessed with two children nearly the exact same age!
