Welcome Baby Madeleine

10 days ago this little bundle of joy entered my world, and I still can’t quite believe it! Little Madeleine arrived last Monday, October 17th at 6 lbs 3.5 oz and we were both blessed to have a speedy delivery and recovery. I’ll be in and out to share updates as I get to know our little girl and settle into my new role as a mother (really?) so I hope you guys will continue to stop by and visit. :)

Meanwhile I’m learning quite fast and have become a pro at a few new things this week, including:

• How to text with my left hand.
• How to scarf down a Double-Double in 2 minutes flat.
• How to talk endlessly about nothing, to soothe the baby.

One thing I am failing at miserably though is restful sleep. And I hear that part doesn’t get much better…

  1. Congratulations to you both! Glad to hear you had a speedy delivery and recovery (you don’t want to hear my story, hah!). Love her name! And actually, you will get a restful sleep pretty soon again. Sleeping through the night actually came much faster than I thought.

  2. Congratulations! So pleased you had a speedy delivery (so did I over 2 years ago, best day of my life!). Madeleine is beautiful, you and your husband must be so smitten. Can’t wait to read all your updates :) sleep when baby sleeps, 2 years on, I still do!

  4. Congratulations! It’s amazing how I look look back when I first followed your blog— I was still single then, then I got married, had a baby, then I read you getting engaged, getting married in Vegas and now, a baby too! I hope to meet you one day CT!

  6. Congratulations! Glad everything went well. Little Madeleine is gorgeous even at only a few days old, you could get such a nice shot of her! Enjoy motherhood!

  7. Congrats! I’m a sleep researcher and you should definitely read “Sleeping through the night” by Jodi Mindell, Ph.D. I buy it on amazon and give it to all of my friends who are new parents. It gives fantastic tips and info about sleep for new parents.

  8. Congrats! She is adorable! Wow, you grew up just in front of our monitors!! I remember in 2005/2006 when you had started your blog, all your outfit of the day posts! Can’t wait to see how your going to dress your beautiful little girl!!
