Happy Birthday to the sweetest little girl we know!

deep in thought

hey, get that thing out of my face!
digging right into the cake!

We've really enjoyed watching Madeline grow this year. I'm telling you, there's nothing like being around a baby to make you realize how quickly time flies! When it came time to choose a present, I wanted to give Madeline something that would last a long time. She already has a better wardrobe than I do, along with all of the greatest toys and gizmos, so I starting thinking more along the sentimental lines.

I actually saw this idea on the How Does She? Blog. They have some great ides for more craft ideas than one person needs! I saw this idea for a growth chart and knew it was the perfect gift, but that it definitely need some snazzy up! Here's the finished product:

And a close up of the top:
The 7 on the heart you see at the top is actually one of the numbers that will be glued on every birthday to mark how tall Madeline is for that year. I have to admit, I'm pretty proud of how cute it turned out!

Here's to many more years celebrating Miss Madeline!
