Madelyn: Month 1

Our first month with Madelyn has been crazy and wonderful! She has such a sweet personality and has taken up a huge part of our hearts. During her short life so far she has already collected several nicknames including: munchkin, munch, munchie, Little B, Little One, Maddie and Maddie G.

We had a great stay in the hospital and loved getting to know our little Madelyn.

A few days after she was born we found out that Matt had 6 weeks of paid paternity leave! We have loved having daddy around 24/7. He has loved having tons of cuddle time with Madelyn and I get to sleep in everyday and take uninterrupted naps. It is wonderful. Maddie has loved having daddy around too.

Madelyn loves riding in the car--as long as we are moving. Sometimes she will cry if we stop at a light. It's pretty cute and funny. 

Maddie wanted to be held 24/7 for the first few weeks which we took advantage of. Now that she is focusing more of faces and objects she is much happier playing by herself a little bit. 

She does this really cute thing when she sleeps where she spreads her fingers. Apparently she is a very intense sleeper. She also likes to spread her cute toes.

We went on our first road trip to St. George and she was an angel in the car and slept most of the way.

She had a few blowouts and got to have her first baths.

Aunt Stephie Lynne even got in on the fun!

She got to meet some of her cousins for the first time and especially loved Chase.

She wore her first dress. :)

We love her little cries. She has some funny "one-syllable" cries when she wants your attention or just wants to tell you she is annoyed.

She has really cute stretches.

Madelyn used to cross her little feet in ultrasounds--we love that she still loves to cross her little feet.

We are so in love with this little girl. She just makes life so fun. There is a part of me that never wants her to grow up but she just gets more cute and fun everyday so I guess I'm ok with it. Here are a few more of our favorite pictures.

Daddy dressed her :)

Madelyn's Newborn Photos

We love our sweet little Madelyn. For months we had talked about what she would look like and Matt was positive that she would have dark hair. It turns out he was right! She has stolen our hearts already with her sweet spirit and cute personality. She already has lots of nick names including Maddie, Little B (of course), and Little One. We are in love with her and these newborn photos taken by the talented Jill Witt Photography.
