14 months…Postcards from the Edge


I wanted to do a post, but had no idea what to focus on, so here are some windows into the daily life of the Madster and I.


Reading to Madison (when she holds the book)

And the poor dog had none

Favorite Maddi Moments

Being just the two of us, we settled into a bedtime ritual. I get her all ready for bed, turn on her musical crib aquarium ( thank you Hallie & Paul) and her night light star projector turtle (thank you Erin) pour a glass of wine and read to her from Harry Potter until she falls asleep. Its a small sliver in time that just means the world to me. I know she has no idea what I’m reading her but it is a connection I look forward to everyday. We just finished our first dueling lesson with Professors Snape and Lockhart this evening. Its like a mother-daughter date night, but every night :) I never miss it!
