Maddie is 6.5

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

I always have a tough time getting myself organized for Maddie’s letters since they are “due” less than a month after Cullen’s. Here it is…Maddie’s 6.5 year old letter, a little over a month late. (more…)

Happy 6th Birthday to Maddie!

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

A bit more delay getting this one out, but at less than a month after her birthday (and a cruise right after), I’ll take it. Here’s the latest letter to Maddie. (more…)

Maddie’s 5 and a half!

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

I’m only about a week late with Maddie’s letter this time…not too bad! Big changes between the last letter and this one with the start of kindergarten!

Happy (belated) 5th Birthday, Maddie!

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

Wow, Maddie is 5 years old. Five seems like a big deal to me. Why does it seem SO much more than 4? I guess I’m thinking about how she will be starting kindergarten and gaining more and more independence. It’s hard to believe. So, here is Maddie’s letter…most of it written 3 months ago. Better late than never. (more…)

Maddie is 4.5!

Saturday, October 6th, 2012

I can’t believe that Maddie is four and a half (or was on August 20th!). Time for another letter to Maddie! (more…)

Happy 4th birthday, Maddie!

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

Finally! I’ve been working on this letter to Maddie since her birthday. I think I made a mistake only doing these every 6 months now. I had quite a bit to cover. You might want to skim the photos and call it a day. (more…)

Maddie is 3.5!

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

It feels like as soon as I finish one letter, it’s time to write the next one. I’m glad that I am writing these as I have trouble remembering what I had for lunch much less what the kids were doing at any specific time period. Here’s the latest installment of my letters to Maddie. (more…)

Maddie’s 39 month letter (a bit overdue)

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

I decided that I wanted to continue doing the letters every 3 months for Maddie. I still feel like so much happens in that time period, and I just want to keep it all documented for her (and for me!). I hope to put letters to Maddie into books for her along with other keepsakes, photos, and milestones. I only need to write one letter this month, since I’m doing Cullen’s every 3 months now, but I still can’t manage to get it written on time! I’ve had this one mostly written for a couple of weeks…but I just now found the time to add the photos. (more…)

Happy 3rd birthday, Maddie!

Monday, February 28th, 2011

Wow!!!! Maddie is THREE! I can’t believe all the things that she is doing these days. With Children’s House in her near future, she will be seeing lots of changes soon. I can’t wait to see what the next few months will bring! Time for the 3-year old edition of letters to Maddie. Um, it appears to be a long one (no wonder it took me so long to finish). (more…)

Maddie’s 33-month letter (a little late)

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

It’s been a busy few weeks for us, so I pretty much knew I wasn’t going to be able to get both letters done on time. I can’t believe that Maddie is closer to 3 years old than two and a half. I guess I better get used to saying that she is “almost 3″ instead of saying “two and a half.” Here’s another letter to Maddie. I’ve been working on it since the 20th when she was 33 months old. It might take you until the next 20th to read it all. (more…)
