As this blog post posts at 3:44am, Madison Sophia will be celebrating her 7th birthday! Well, hopefully not really celebrating her 7th birthday, hopefully sleeping….but dreaming of the fun day ahead of her!!
It is mind boggling that this 6lb, 11oz bundle of joy is turning 7 years old.
Wow time flies!
I started blogging when Madison was just over two years old and have celebrated with her every year since! I thought it would be fun to share some family photos of the day she was born.
The night Jaime went into labor I had been over at their place watching television with her. I left around 10pm, headed home and went to bed. Just over an hour later Zak called me and said that Jaime’s water had broke and she had already been admitted to Labor & Delivery.
WHAT?! I had just left and yes, she had been having steady contractions…but to an hour later being admitted to the hospital? That was crazy fast!
Brandi picked me up and we headed the 25 minutes into the hospital.
After arriving we checked in and learned that Jaime was really sick and didn’t want visitors. Her nurse assured us that since it was Jaime’s first baby she wouldn’t deliver until at least 7am (1cm an hour). So Brandi and I packed back up and headed back home.
Before we were even 5 minutes from the hospital Zak called and said she was getting her epidural and progressing fast.
I got home, climbed into bed and my phone starting ringing (maybe an hour later). It was Zak saying, it was time to deliver and if I wanted to be there before the baby was born I needed to get my butt on the road.
Remember this is now about 1:30am.
For the second time in a couple hours, in the middle of the night, I made the 25 minute trip to the hospital.
I got there and found Jaime much happier, thanks to her wonderful epidural! I probably waited with them in the hospital room for over an hour as we waited for the doctor to come to deliver the baby.
It wasn’t long after that when Madison Sophia entered the world at 3:44am. I was outside in the hall during the delivery, but heard her first scream as she was delivered and was invited in quickly there after. That’s a memory that I’ll always treasure.
Below are some family pictures from the day Madison was born. We all look so much younger, well maybe not me, I look the same!
Ahhhh….I just love this little girl, or I guess should say big girl now!
Happy Birthday, Maddie!!
