We have a lot of short clips of Maddie (although not enough. Never enough), but there is one that stands out to me as one of my absolute favorites. Mike and I love music, and we were so thrilled when our Madeline not only showed an appreciation for music, but an aptitude for it as well. This little movie was put together just a couple weeks after her first birthday. We were so looking forward to seeing if she wanted to take voice or piano or guitar lessons.

This is why my mark is an M modified into a musical note. This is why when I think of my daughter, I think of beautiful music.
