This is a classic Maddison moment. This video is from January and I just found it in the archive of pictures from Kansas. Jason wanted me to post it because it is really funny and she was fine after we got all the cheese out. I hope it makes you laugh. Maddie and her independence.

---- He is the hardest working man I know (reminds me of my Dad). He never stops going, until he just drops. His work ethic is so important to him and nothing is ever done half way. He never really just sits unless I make him !!
---- He gets more handsome with time (how fair is that?) He is still the strong, handsome, broad shouldered man I fell in love with almost 14 years ago.
----I love his eyes. When he looks at me I still melt. I love that I still get anxious when I know he is on his way home to us.
----I love that he puts Maddie and I first despite how busy he is, and trust me he is busy.
----I love what a great Husband and Father he is. He tells me how the best part of his day is coming home to us (Maddie first of course).
Well that is enough for now. I could go on for quite a while, trust me !!
I love you Jason !! Thanks for being my husband and my best friend.

----- Today we went to lunch after running errands. As we were sitting outside eating and she was watching a woman throw away her garbage. She looks to me and says " Mamma I am so proud of her for not littering !!" That's my girl.
-----She wakes up in the morning just beaming to start a new day. She shouts down to me "I'm awake Mamma is the sun up ?" Then she looks out a window and declares "it's a beautiful day today."
----When she wakes up from her nap she loves to cuddle and needs to be held. These moments are my favorite, when she holds still and is so refreshed from her nap.
----She loves when Daddy comes home and we wait for him on the front porch. She runs to the Jeep to greet him with a huge hug and asks "How was your day Daddy, was it good?" Jason tells me it is the best part of his day.
----We get ready for bed and read books in the rocking chair. I am amazed at her when she reads the book to me. She remembers what each page says. We then snuggle in bed and she tells me that I am her "best friend in the whole world and so is Daddy." I am my daughters friend and I love to hear that sweet voice.

( Remember to pause the music to hear the video.) This was the only time we got to spend with Daddy on his Birthday. After working a 30 hour shift at the hospital, (his regular shift plus overnight call), he came home and fell asleep reading his cards. We put him to bed and he slept for 11 hours, woke up for a little bit and went back to sleep so he could be back to work at 5 a.m. on Monday. The life of a first year intern !!!!
We love and miss you Daddy!!
