Tink Tink

Tink Tink, Tinker bell, Tink a link, Tink-alicious, or as "ippah" says, Ting Ting. These are all names given to our little "stinker", Madden. So, to explain... Tink-tink came from calling Madden, something having to do with "little stinker".
Well, Tink Tink will be one year old on Saturday. It's bittersweet for me, as I will no longer have any babies under 1 year old...(what will I do with myself, right)? We have had so much going on over the past few weeks, I think its been a distraction from the fact that our little girl is having a BIG birthday, (Which is a good thing for those of you who know her super sentimental Momma).
But nonetheless on Saturday, this precious little girl of ours is having a birthday.
She is a shear delight. As I tell her everynight on the way to use the hairdryer to dry her hair (which she thinks is super Big girl-ish)...I fell in love with her the moment I saw her beautiful eyes that day in the hospital. When I held her, I thought to myself I could not imagine a more wonderful blessing straight from heaven. I love being with her, I love every minute I spend with her, watching her learn something new, or trying to immitate anything and everything.

Madden's smile makes me melt, her bright eyes are the keys to my heart(hence she can be kind of a "tink tink" sometimes and gets away with more than she should). She is such a little comedian, and she knows it...she dances all of the time, and sometimes when she laughs she throws her head back just a bit too far, her legs come up and she loses balance-- she falls over giggling all the way. This precious child has wings on her back just like her brother. God has truly blessed us beyond my wildest imagination. I am so thankful for this little TINK...her little looks of mischief and her sweet spirit amaze me each and everyday.
