Most of you know that Maddox was a huge SURPRISE. I am talking HUGE! Not only were we covering all of our bases with birth control, I was nursing twins and it had taken me three years to get pregnant with the twins. To say I was shocked by a positive pregnancy test would be a huge understatement. It is weird though when something you weren't planning for comes and makes SO much since.
Maddox is such a sweet little boy. He walks around so content and rarely is in need of something. His smile is like no other smile I know. There is something so bright and familiar to it, something almost magical with a sweet sparkle in the pupils. It just melts my heart. He is a sweetheart through and through and I honestly know that he was sent to me because of his disposition, just calm and tender. It helps that our fourth child born a year after twins, has these attributes.
He thinks and acts like he is one of the twins. He is so sweet to baby Paxton and is Bennett's best friend. He is a TOTAL daddy's boy! I think he likes his mama a little bit too:)! He so fits in to our little home. I have to say though the best part of my sweet little Maddox is...HE IS MINE!!!!
Maddox, Happy Birthday buddy! I love you so much. I know there is no way to express to you the love we have for you. You are truly a sweet spirit. I have always said the toughest thing about being a parent is knowing there is no way my children could possibly know how much I love them. That is hard for me. But I promise to every day try to make you understand it and feel it.
