Remembering Madelyn’s First Year
It’s hard to believe that in 28 days Madelyn will complete her first year with us! Her life has added so much to ours…honestly, as I’m sure all parents can understand, it’s hard to express. But this month I am going to attempt to look back and recount some of our favorite memories with Maddie. Feel free to send in your story requests 🙂
I guess its only fitting to start with her beginning!
Ben and I were a little surprised to find we were expecting a baby! We were hoping to get pregnant in September…little did we know that’s when our first baby was to be born! The moment Madelyn entered our lives, however, we could not imagine life without her. She was born at 8:28pm on September 28th. Weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces and 21 inches long. I will never forget the first moment I saw her. She was bright red, her head full of dark brown hair, and her mouth open wide, screaming at the top of her lungs! She was beautiful!
