One of the most amazing things about Madeline is how thoughtful she is. Sometimes when I'm trying to think of a gift for someone I will ask Madeline if she has any ideas. She usually has some fantastic ideas because she is so considerate.
On our night out together we were looking for a gift for my cousin Kaylissa. Kaylissa is a year older than Madeline, and they are great friends. Whenever they see each other they give each other a big hug. Madeline didn't want to get Kaylissa just anything. She wanted to get her something that Kaylissa would love. She wanted to get her something that showed Kayli how much Madeline loves her. I'm not going to share the secret of what we bought, but we think Kayli will be excited.
About a month ago, I found Madeline and Lydia in their room together, scheming about what to get me for Christmas. They had their own money, looking through a catalog of things they know I love. How sweet is that? That is my Madeline!
