Welcome Madison Mae

Madi was born on Good Friday, March 29, 2013 at 1:12pm weighing 7 pounds, 6 ounces and was 19.5 inches long. We are so thrilled to have our sweet baby girl with us! She has been such a joy already and it has only been a week... a week that has flown by. 

We had so many visitors at the hospital to see our Sweet Madi. Mimi, Papa, Gram, Aunt Beth, cousin Wes, Aunt Sabrina, Aunt Sheryl, Uncle Gary, Aunt Mandy, cousin Macy, and cousin Makayla along with lots of friends. Thank you all so much! I somehow missed pictures of Aunt Sabrina and Aunt Sheryl but I am sure there are some around. I will find those and post them!

After a long three days at the hospital, we were able to come home on Easter Sunday. It was a wonderful day to come home! I know this may be crazy but I can't help but remember my grandmother Dorothy Mae Smith... timing couldn't have been more perfect. Madi's middle name is Mae after my late grandmother... one of her favorite holidays was Easter. Madi was born on Good Friday and got to come home on Easter... can't help but think that Grandma was looking down on us from Heaven! 

Mimi and Aunt Cici worked hard at our house to have it clean, food prepared for the week, and adding the finishing touches on the nursery before we got home. They decorated with sweet little candies and balloons to welcome us home. Our neighborhood also welcomed us home with putting us on the Marquee at the beginning of the neighborhood as well as other signs throughout. We have the best neighbors!!!

 We were so lucky to have Mimi stay for few days after we got home to help. While Mimi was here, we gave Madi her first bath at home. 

It's so hard to believe that it has been a week already. 
Happy 1 week birthday sweet girl! Mommy and Daddy love you!
