The Trophy Business...

Madison is not sure what to think of the trophy business...or her mom's creativity. We'll have to try again another day!!

2 weeks!

That's right...Madison is two and a half weeks old! I can't even believe it! I've been meaning to update this blog but just haven't found the time to do it! Imagine that! Madison is doing good. She is back up to her birth weight and is 21 inches long now. She out grew her preemie clothes in length and is now wearing newborn...but they are still a little big! She's still pretty tiny at 7lbs. 7oz.

She's been to the doctor 3 times and every time she's been great. (Even though she doesn't really like the doctor's office)! She had a little jaundice at first but it cleared up pretty fast. And now we are working to get a formula that agrees with her. So she's been pretty fussy the past few days as we try to figure this out and get her regulated. And what I mean by fussy is that she's only happy when she's being held! 24/7. She hasn't sleep in her bed in like 4 days...just sleeps being held close against her stomach. So hopefully we'll get this figured out soon! (But she's been really good today...knock on wood!)!

The pictures above are of her first. Her first dress...first car ride...first doctors visit and first bath!

Madison Is Here!!

Madison Presley Edmonds arrived at 7:38pm New Years Eve! She weighed 7lbs. 8 oz. and was 18 1/2 inches long. She has a full head of dark hair!!

We started the induction process at 12am and started off pretty good. I got to a 7 around 4pm and then stopped having contractions and stopped dilating all together. I hadn't progressed or changed any when the doctor checked me about the doctor made the decision to go ahead and do a C-Section. So after 18 hours of labor they moved us into the OR room pretty fast and had her out by 7:38pm. The C-Section went really well.

Both of us are doing very well. I've got a few of the first pictures and will post more soon.
