Bath Time!

Madelyn got her first bath at home last night. She did SO great! She hardly made a sound while she was in the tub. Getting her hair wet made me realize just how much she actually has. We love our little girl!

Our Bundle of Joy

Madelyn Elizabeth Sullivan is here!!!!!!!!!

Madelyn was born at 2:51pm today. She was 6lbs 14oz and 21 inches long. She came out perfect and happy, just like the picture below. After a quick bath, Madelyn got her hair done and a new bow put in it. She stayed awake for two hours after she was born and only cried during the first part of her bath.

Mom and baby are doing fine! Rach did a great job and still looked great after a half hour of pushing.Spencer came to visit and is still getting used to having a sissy. We'll see how he is when she comes home to stay! Dad is very happy to have such good lookin' kids!
So, now we have two kids and our family is great. We are so happy to have Madelyn as part of our family.

Gimme 5!

We are now at 5 cm! The doc seems to think we'll be having this baby about 4:30 or 5 this afternoon! Anyone want to take a guess at how big she'll be????

The Baby's Coming!

We have been at the hospital since 7:30 this morning and are now awaiting the arrival of Madelyn! Rachel is dilated to a 4 and 80% effaced. Her water is broke and she has the epidural, so she is somewhat comfortable now. We will keep everyone updated as the day progresses.

So Big!

I just can't get over how big Spencer has gotten! This is a picture of him at our little family birthday BBQ. I swear he grows a foot a day! Spencer is going to look huge next to Madelyn once she finally gets here.
Speaking of "So Big" that could totally describe me right now. I feel HUGE! I am SO ready for Madelyn to get here already!!! The baby bedding that my mom ordered for her arrived today as do Mom and AC. So really, after they get here, she is more than welcome to come on and be born. At least I know by Tuesday I will be in the hospital contracting with the best of them!
