The necklace was kind of to replace one he gave me a few years ago. Last April I was at my Grandma's spending the night and took it off and set it on the sewing table. I forgot to put it on the next morning and she had all the family over for dinner. Two of my cousins (age 2) played in there and I searched everywhere and couldn't find it. It is now my brother's room and he was moving into a different room so I told him to keep an eye out for it.
On Tuesday morning he called me. He mentioned to Grandma that he was looking for it and guess what??? She had it!!! She had asked all her girls if it was theirs and she didn't know who else to ask. Where did she find it??? Under the stairs, in the CHRISTMAS TREE!!! Seriously, why didn't I check there first??? :D
Anyway, I love the necklace and thought it was so sweet of him to do that for me. He is a great husband and I couldn't ask for anyone better to share my life, my dreams and my future with! I love you Derrick!!!
Last Saturday was Madi's half birthday. She is six months old! It is amazing how fast the time has gone. We went to Sparetime for a little celebration. We let her ride on a merry-go-round and in the batmobile. She really didn't seem amused. :) Derrick and I bowled and she enjoyed watching us. We got her an outfit for the spring/summer. We had a great day as a family!
Madi has started scooting herself all over. On Saturday after we got her ready, we went to get ready and it got a little quiet in her room so we went to check on her. She was playing with her FAVORITE thing that mom always moves her away from... her drapes!
It is so funny to watch her when she gets so excited. She kind of forgets to breath and sometimes we have to put our hand on her chest and remind her. She loves to play in her drapes. I think it is because they are textured and somewhat sheer so she is able to learn and see things differently. I love her sounds and her smiles!
