She's Here!!

Madison Joy Bishop has finally come to join our family! She was born on December 7th, 2007 at 2:58pm. She was 7 pounds 1 ounce and 20.5 inches long; just a little peanut! She is just darling as can be and the sweetest little thing ever! We went into the hospital a little after midnight Thursday/Friday, and she was born 14 hours later. A pretty long labor, but when it came to pushing, four pushes and she was here! It was such a calm and spiritual experience, if you can imagine childbirth being calm! The fact that she was so ready to come made the whole experience so smooth because I didn't have to push as hard, just slow and steady. It was just such a different experience this time around because I felt so much more confident and I knew a little more what to expect. It was really nice to have both Bryce's mom and my mom there with us to enjoy such a miracle at hand. We were anxious and excited to bring her home to meet her big brother so we just stayed in the hospital one night. Thank you to all of our visitors that came to see us and all the caring phone calls and texts! We really appreciate all of your love and support! It was hard, especially for me, to leave Kaden for so long, but our homecoming was well worth it as his eyes lit up and welcomed us with the biggest smile we'd ever seen! Kaden is so adorable with his little sister. He thinks that she is the cutest thing. He always smiles at her and laughs when she makes funny faces or whimpers. That is all she really does. I prayed for a content baby for my sanity and Heavenly Father sure listened. Madison rarely fuses and when she whimpers it is because she is hungry. What an angel!! I know there is still time she is only 5 days old, but so far so good! She is a great eater and has such a strong suck that she can already use a pacifier! Maddy loves to sleep, especially all curled up on Grammy's chest. It was so precious to see Bryce with Kaden when he was first born and I think it is even that much sweeter to see how he interacts with his baby girl. Little Maddy has already melted her Daddy's heart! Well enough is enough now for some pictures of our little angel.
