Week 2

My mom helped me for Madison's second week at home. It was wonderful to have her help with both girls and lots of fun. Thanks mom! Here are just some cute pictures from that week.

Aubrey had a lot of fun this Easter. Her and Craig did an egg hunt at church Sunday morning and then we went to my parent's house that evening for dinner and another egg hunt. We had a great day and as you can see in the pictures, Aubrey really loved picking up the eggs and putting them in her basket.

Week 1 at home

We had a good first week at home. Craig got a week off of work so that was great to have him at home to help with both girls. Aubrey still loves her new little sister and enjoys helping as much as she can.

Madison Christine

Madison Christine was born on April 15th at 7:43am. She weighed 7lbs 9oz. She has a head full of dark hair and is such a cutie pie. We feel so blessed!

My parents were taking care of Aubrey while we were at the hospital and so they brought her to visit as soon as we got to our room. However, she was more interested in eating Cheez-its and playing with her cousins Grace and Kate than her new baby sister.


Later that same day, my parents came back with Aubrey to visit. It was soooo cute. She just loved her. She was very sweet and would hold her hands out and ask to hold Madison when someone else was holding her.

One of her favorite things to do is to point to all of Madison's body parts and say what they are.

The next day, Kim brought her family to meet Madison.


And when Aubrey came back the next day, Grammy had put her hair in pigtails for the first time. Super cute!

Ready to go home! As you can see, she's thrilled to be sitting in the car seat. We did have to pull over twice on our way home, but she was happy once we were there!
