Madelynn's 2nd Birthday

I can't believe our baby girl is two! She is an absolute joy to have in our little family. We feel like we definitely got spoiled by having her as our first child. She is such a cute, sweet, funny, spunky little girl. She cracks us up with so many of the things she does and says. She really does keep us entertained. She is also an absolute sweetheart. She loves to cuddle and give hugs and kisses. She also really likes to sit on your lap while reading books or watching a movie. But she is also a very energetic little person and loves to dance and spin and run and run and run. She also really likes to have daddy swing her around and hold her upside down and help her climb on the ceiling. Her daddy is her best friend and favorite person to play with and her mommy is her cuddle buddy and safe place to be. She loves animals, especially kitties, doggies and monkeys. She really likes to make animal noises as well. She also likes to hide under blankets like they are a tent. She will hold the blanket up and tell us to come in. It is always fun to have the whole family hanging out under a blanket tent. Madelynn loves it when we sing to her and has just recently started to try to sing the songs herself. She is also picking up language fast. I think my very favorite things that she says right now are, "Mommy, I hold you!", "I tried it, I like it", "come on!", "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Where are you?" and any time she randomly busts out the animal noises. Just today we were shopping and she decided that she should make monkey noises to entertain herself. They are pretty funny. We love our little Madelynn!

Since her birthday is on Halloween we decided to throw a little Halloween/birthday party with some of our friends who have kids that Madelynn plays with. We played a few little games, let the kids play with toys and had dinner and birthday cake. After the party we went trick or treating with our friends the Lovelands. We only went to about a dozen houses, but for a 1 1/2 year old and two 2 year olds it was perfect. The girls were so excited! They would giggle and squeal and try to run from house to house. They were not very good at saying trick or treat yet, but when they tried it was the cutest thing ever. The three little girls together were super adorable. There was more than one house where someone inside was summoned to see the cute little girls. Once we were done trick or treating we opened presents and skyped with both sets of grandparents and let Madelynn eat way too much candy out of her pumpkin (pronounced "bumbkeen", so cute!). It was a wonderful birthday and we want to say thank you to everyone who helped us celebrate!
