I love to fly

I have always loved flying.  There's an almost magical energy that flows through even the smallest of airports. People are coming and going. All for different reasons. Business, funerals, weddings, vacations. Everyone is experiencing change. Everyone is different. It's exciting. Especially for a people watcher like me. I love wondering what I'll order for my precious complementary beverage even though I know - Sprite. Always. Bringing favorite snacks that keep one particular little mouth busy. Anxious adrenaline rushes fill a day of travel. Take off, landing. I'm childish with excitement. But yesterday I was especially grateful to be traveling with my two favorite people.  They seem to make any experience brighter. Even a day of flying.

Sometimes I look at this beautiful child and wonder how she could possibly be the same one who was throwing a massive tantrum just hours earlier. Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be done sweeping graham cracker crumbs. Sometimes it amazes me that even after a long day I miss her while she's sleeping. Sometimes I dream of the great things she'll be and do. Sometimes I wish she could stay this small longer. But always and forever, I will love my little girl.

just wanted to let you know we're alive and miraculously we still remember how to take pictures

Has it really been almost a month since I've blogged?! That's crazy. We've been sick off and on. Madeline has a couple teeth coming in and I guess I've just had a lot of projects going on.  None of which I've finished... Time is going by really fast.

Yesterday I had a little time to take some pictures of Madeline.  She wasn't in the best mood, but I think we did alright.  Hard to believe she's almost sixteen months. WE ARE SO READY FOR NURSERY! Only 75 days, 11 Sundays... this isn't making me feel better.  On to the pictures.
"Where's your nose?" 
I included the above picture because I never got a great picture of 
the dress that I made for her birthday.  Isn't it so cute!

I probably don't need to tell you this, but she did all her own posing ;)

Did I mention she's teething? Fingers in her mouth at all times.
