Dear Madelyn Kate,
I have so many things from the last couple of days that I want to share (and I will). SO many pictures... I want to make sure that you see. We have done some fun new things together that I want to be sure to put in to words and document for you. I feel sort of behind in my blogging. Two days worth of being behind. I should be jotting down what you have been up to.

Tonight is just not the night.

I am sitting next to you, watching you sleep. Listening as you take deep breaths. Overwhelmed by your presence in my life. I love you sweet Madelyn. I love you in ways I never dreamed possible. You are my first only (for now at least). My miracle you will always be.

Right now I feel like I should be doing 15 different things.

Not one of them includes sitting here in the dark watching you sleep. Yet, there is no place else I would rather be.

So the dishes...the laundry...the long blog...the pictures...the fun things we have been up to...they will have to wait. Right now, I am going to cherish this tender moment. Just you sleeping and me watching you.

I love you,


  1. So sweet! I LOVE that picture of her...she looks too cute! Take in these moments...they go by so fast. I had a friend tell me the other day to focus on the things that are eternal. Madelyn is let the laundry and the dishes wait!
    I love you and I love our long phone conversations! They were fun before but they are even better now that you have Maddie!:)

  2. One thing is for sure. You will have no regrets on cherishing your time with the little one. You've got your priorities straight girl!

  3. Kathryn,
    First, Madelyn is fearfully and wonderfully made, and I can see that in her eyes. What a perfect angel she is who will always leave a legacy of faith. Though it has been scary and it will continue to be, what a blessing to know that the Lord has entrusted you and Luke with such an enormous test of faith. You are living it out so evidently!

    Second, thank you so much for the wonderfully kind words that you said about me in your previous post. You and I both know that nothing matters but the Lord and our love for Him. I immediately felt that connection with you when we met on Saturday. In fact, I immediately told Brian what an honor it was to meet you in person.

    You are precious, kathryn! May His grace cover you today.


Thank you for the comment love! :)
