Madelyn Joelle: 10 months

I know I haven’t posted in a very.




I’m so sorry!

But sometimes, when life is so busy and hectic, you want to make sure your busy LIVING life….

Not just writing about it.

But I have soooo many things that I want to share with you guys…. things I think you will really enjoy.

I hope you’ll stick around and give me a chance to show you :)

But before all of that fun craziness begins, I wanted to show you a big part of what’s been keeping me so busy these last few months…..

Her name is Madelyn Joelle Rockers.

Or…. Maddy Jo

Or…. MJ

And she and her daddy are pretty much the most awesome things to have ever happened to me.

I have loved everything about this last year so much. Everyday Madelyn is changing and growing and becoming less like the little baby she was and more like the little girl she is going to be.

And let me tell you…. I LOVE the little person that she is and that she is becoming.

Madelyn has such a sweet temperament and personality. I love that she is so charming and friendly. NOT ONCE have I handed her to a stranger, only to have her to cry and want to be back in the arms of someone more familiar. She loves everyone and is willing to give everyone a chance. What a wonderful quality. There is so much I can learn from her.

She’s learning new tricks every day. From doing WHOOOO… PIG SOOIE! with us to clapping her hands, from waving buh-bye to giving high-fives and kisses. She’s also recently learned how to shake her head ‘no’ at me. It is SO CUTE, but I know in a few months I’ll need to come back and read this post in order to remember the days when I thought her defiance was adorable.


I love that when I am sitting on the floor, she’ll come up behind me, pull up on my back, and lie her head on my shoulder.

i. could. die.

These days are passing by too quickly. I find myself desperately trying to grab hold, but somehow time keeps getting away from me and soon my little baby will be a year old.

I know that it’s a gift…. my ability to see and constantly be aware of how precious and fleeting these days are. But it’s also painful.

I know that my days with her are limited.

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU Lord…. for entrusting this little soul to my care.

I’ll do everything I can not to let you down.

***PS: I’m back. As in, back to regularly scheduled posting! Stay tuned for some amazing makeovers, some awesome DIY’s, some TO DIE FOR recipes, and some great tips and tricks about how to make your house a home… from one homemaker to another :)

  1. What a precious little girl! This is the perspective I want to impart to all mommies; the preciousness of these fleeting moments. I tell young mommas who fret over the small stuff that I have an advantage in my thinking because my oldest is 26 years old and I DO know how quickly it all goes. It took me awhile to arrive to this way of thinking :( I was THRILLED when the Lord blessed us with our 10th Kingdom Warrior 3 weeks after my 45th birthday! Michael Ray is now 14 months old and I do not take a moment for granted! You have blessed this older momma’s heart today :)
