We celebrated her fourth birthday a few weekends ago with family and a few close friends that feel like family. She ran and laughed and played until she worked up an appetite then we cut into a white frosted cake revealing six layers, each a different color of the rainbow. We watched the little girl who fills our home with laughs and questions and dolls and dresses collect another year. Her mother and I watched the person we created transition into the person she’s becoming and it happened right before our eyes. We attempted to blink away the tears of reality that our little girl is growing up faster than we ever could have imagined, but the truth of the matter is time really does seem to fly when you're having this much fun.
Happy Birthday, Madison.
Happy Birthday to you.
