Sugar and Spice...

I've been meaning to post this precious picture for a few days, but somehow I never got around to it.  This is one of the first photos of Madison with her new baby cousin, Gabriella!  Gabby was born about six weeks ago, and she is the second grandchild of Madison's other set of grandparents.

Madison is absolutely thrilled to have another cousin!  I think it's nice that she now has a girl cousin, in addition to her boy cousin, Cade.  Madison also has another boy cousin on the way, (Cade's baby brother) due to arrive in December.  I say, "the more, the merrier!"

Since the arrival of baby Gabriella, Madison has been asking for a baby brother or sister.  Little does she know that her parents have been trying to have her one for nearly two years.  It just doesn't seem to be God's will at this time.  In fact, Madison is somewhat of a miracle baby herself.

I think Madison would make a great big sister, if the Lord ever decided to bless her family with another baby.  If not, she'll still make a great big cousin to her younger cousins.  She sure is growing up fast!

What a sweet picture! Gabriella is lucky to have a cousin like Madison to look out for her. :-)

As far as a brother or sister for Madison, there's always adoption. I was adopted and look how great I turned out. (Just kidding.) :-P

What a lucky baby she is to be born into a great family! I pray that Madison will be a big sister, no matter how she gets to be one.

Maddie looks like a natural nurturer. I was an only child for my first 13 years. I had a cousin, Gloria, 5 years older than I was. She took me under her wing, and even as a teenager, she gave me time and attention.

She was -- and still is -- wonderful! The affirmation of the time she spent with me, helped boost my confidence at an especially shy, awkward stage in my life.

Even if Maddie is never an "official" big sister, it appears she is well on the way to having the impact of a loving big sister!
