"Sleep"over


At work, there were four of us that were pregnant - all with girls and each three weeks apart! I was due last. Yesterday two of them stopped by with their new babies.  It was so fun to have all of the girls together.  We had such a good time all being pregnant at once - seeing what the others were feeling.  Now we can bounce ideas off of each other about newborns!  Yay for friends.  We can't wait to meet at the park when Madeline's a little older.

Curious George (and Madeline)


Matt has been so great about taking Madeline when he gets home so I can get some rest.  I love it when I can hear them from the other room reading books.  It melts my heart!  What a good daddy.

Curly Sue



I know I haven't posted anything in such a long time.  Here are some pictures of Madeline to hold everyone over until I figure out how to handle feeding, changing and comforting a newborn while fitting in everything else I should be doing :)

I just LOVE how curly Madeline's hair is after a bath.  What a cutie!

Today Madeline was a little fussy.  I wrapped her tight and started to sing to her.  She immediately calmed and stared into my face while I sang her primary songs.  I have felt such a bond with her - unlike anything I have ever felt. I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the gift and privilege of being a mother.
