MAL

Madalyn Elizabeth arrived at 6:14 am on November 18th, 2012. She weighed 8.15 lbs and was 21 3/4 in long. She was so small compared to her 9.5lbs brother. :)
Maddy was fortunate enough to be born on her aunt Sissy and cousin Jericho's birthday, and she loves sharing it with them :)
Happy birthday Maddy! 

Maddy's birth was amazing and lasted about 8 hrs with probably 20 mins of pushing. Our midwife had talked Jeremy in to catching her, but she came before he could... he was very relieved :P I remember being surprised at how much my stomach hurt from contracting while nursing the first couple days. My mom said she didn't want to tell me, but that's usually how it is with the second... gee, thanks mom! :) Other than that, it was a wonderful experience, and I'd happily do it again :)
First time meeting brother! 

She's now 2.5yo, and my little cuddler! She has also recently decided she's a toddler, and a very dramatic one at that. Her lovely high pitched screams can be heard from miles away! I think our most used phrase for her is "Oh Maddy, stop. You're fine." In her defense, it's usually brought on by frustration from her brother :P
Feeding her baby and vacuuming

Some things about Maddy:
1. She's currently rolling all around the family room saying "Hi mommy! Mommy, I'm coming back! Mommy did you see me?"
2. She has a beautiful singing voice, and daddy says she has mommy's talent for making up the words :P
3. When she was a baby, she was so excited to see people that she wouldn't nurse if anyone was there, but instead would nurse all night. She would also fight going to sleep, and would have to be walked around for hours!
4. Thankfully, she was a lot easier to get to sleep in her own bed then big brother :)
5. She loves to play and nurse her baby dolls.
6. She is an amazing little sister, big sister, and daughter :)

First outing at Chipotle!
