Madelynn jumps high and leaps long. She's a talker, her mouth never stops running. She can poop on the potty when she wants to (which has only been twice so far), and put the correct amount of toothpaste on her brush. She counts to twenty, identifies all uppercase letters and is about halfway on lowercase. She cleans up her toys and can find a missing cell phone or remote control in seconds. She's so helpful with Ev, retrieving diapers and wipes to clean her butt, handing her toys that are out of her reach and giving a kiss when she looks a little cranky. She can put her clothes on (although she prefers to take them off), put on her shoes and coat, and clip her own hair. She loves candles that smell good, taking pictures and eating pretend birthday cake. She says "thank you" and "please", "you're so very welcome" and "excuse me." She's the most beautiful child I have ever seen.
So we get to the mall and OMG there he is! Madelynn was jumping and pointing, "It's Santa!! It's Santa!!" We climb the stairs to see the big guy and...
Mads wouldn't go anywhere near him. Maybe next year.
And Ev? Well that girl just loves everyone.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
FIIIIIVE SCREEEEEEN PRINT TEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!
Six pop-up blocks,
Seven gates for Furry Frenzies,
Nine things to spill,
Eleven letters in Leapster Two,
Twelve pictures of the ceiling,

Mads was such a good big sister. She sat and watched Ev open her present, and even let her play with it for a good three minutes before she stole the plastic cake and ran away. And the toy, well it's probably the coolest birthday cake toy ever made. The candles light up and then you can actually blow them out.
Happy Halfsies, Ev!!

I thought I was behind last year, but I'm cutting it way close this year. If I don't have these babies out by Monday, I might as well replace the tree with a creepy white bunny and call them Easter cards. I'm such a slacker.
Pssst... you can see the card from 2009 here.

It is a little embarrassing though. Who forgets their first anniversary?
Happy Anniversary, Us. I'll put it on the calendar for next year.
