Growing Up

Maddie is one tough little lady!
I look into her eyes and wonder how this girl could have such a positive attitude towards the trials she has faced in her life.
She is my social butterfly who loves friends. . .of all ages.
She must have a hollow leg because she eats a ton and still looks like a supermodel.
She loves to read, but loves, loves, loves quiz books and joke books the most.
She claims she is allergic to gross food.
She would own a cat if her mother wasn't afraid of them.
She secretly plays Barbies, but is afraid her friends would make fun of her if they found out.
She may have two left feet, but it doesn't keep her from learning the latest dance moves.
She keeps her head held high, even though she hates that she still limps. . .the limp won't be permanent. . .we hope!!
She grows like a weed. . . and is two feet taller than her best friend.
She actually wears the same size pants and shoes as her mother!!
She loves being a "tweenager" and her mom thinks having a shopping buddy is pretty awesome.
Today we celebrated Maddie's "awesomeness" with a lunch date and shopping. She claims after having a piece of cheesecake from the "Cheesecake Factory" she can die a happy woman. I agree.

I hope you don't mind me reading your blog, but I think Maddie is the sweetest girl. I've been able to sit next to and talk to her at a few YW/YM activities and she is a sweetheart!

She is such a doll, and a super sweet girl. Are mother daughter dates the best.
