April 8, 2012 - 10 Months Old!

April 8, 2012 - 10 month's old today! 

I can't believe how quickly my little girl is growing up.  I feel as though I put her to sleep one day as an infant and she woke up as a grown baby! Where did the time go? It is so easy to get so caught up with her doctor appointments, endless therapy, programming sessions and conventions... time flies more than ever when you are busy!  We need to make a point of stopping every so often and enjoy little Madison for who she is - a cute, loving, happy little girl!
Madison is on the go more than ever these days.  One month ago she was evaluated by a physical therapist with regards to her "lack of crawling".  And today - she is crawling all over the place, pulling herself up to stand and wanting to walk! Pretty sure she will be running from us!

Nanny and Poppy came for a visit 2 weeks ago - here are a few pictures:

We spent this past weekend with family celebrating Passover & Easter:

 Yes, that brown blob on the lawn is Alan :)

 Happy in my Grandma's arms as I gnaw on a celery stick!

God's Cake

I received this from my aunt a couple of months ago and have been meaning to post this to Madison's blog.  Thanks Mary for sharing this with me :)

God's Cake

Sometimes we wonder,
"What did I do to deserve this?" or
"Why did God have to do this to me?"
Here is a wonderful explaination.

A daughter is telling her mother how everything
is going wrong, she is failing algebra, her boyfriend
broke up with her and her best friend is moving away.
Meanwhile, her mother is baking a cake and
asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the
daughter says, "Absolutely Mom, I love your cake."
"Here, have some cooking oil," her mother offers.
"Yuck" says her daughter..
"How about a couple raw eggs?" "Gross, Mom!"
"Would you like some four then?
Or maybe baking soda?"
"Mom, those are all yucky!"
To which the mother replies:
"Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves.
But when they are put together in the
right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!"
God works the same way.  Many times we wonder why
He would let us go through such bad and difficult
times.  But God knows that when He puts these things
all in His order, they always work for good! We just
have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all
make something wonderful!

He sends you flowers every spring and
a sunrise every morning.
Whenever you want to talk, He'll listen.
He can live anywhere in the universe,
and he chose your heart.
