But it was soooo worth it to carry this little girl around all day. I couldn't help myself. That tummy is just so kissable, and thighs are so squeezable. I told her parents I might need the Silence of the Lambs mask to keep me from stealing a bite of those chunky legs. I couldn't get enough of hearing her say "hello?" and "shoe." I know, every kid does it at some point but it's about the most amazing thing you've ever heard when you're the proud aunty. Oh yeah, and her crazy lady laugh (she does on purpose) is HYSTERICAL. Honestly, she'd do it and I'd die laughing, and she'd do it again (and again and again) just to get my reaction.
I miss you Madeline!!
