Mom and Dad did AWESOME!!

I woke up Thursday with a message on my phone from 5AM. It was Denice telling me her water broke around 2:30 AM and they were at the hospital. I was up, dressed, walked the dog, and out of the house by 7AM. I got to the hospital about 8AM. I got to see Denice a couple minutes before the epidural and then it was the waiting room for me. It worked out good though because it gave me time to try and hurry to finish the baby blanket I'm knitting for this new baby.

After an 11:30 update from Stephen I went out for some lunch. When I came back from lunch I tried calling answer. Turns out it was exactly 1:21....when Madelyn was being delivered! By 2pm I couldn't take it anymore and asked the nurses station for an update. When I walked in there was the baby!!

She is totally adorable with dirty blonde hair with a hint of some curls. She slept and slept and slept.

Congratulations Denice and Stephen!!! And thanks for letting me be a part of it all!!
