Welcome Madison Louise!
Yesterday we welcomed our sixth child into our family. Madison Louise was born at home at 8:14 in the evening after a long night and day of waiting and laboring. She weighed 8 pounds and 3 ounces and is 20 inches long. Our midwife was wonderful and our sweet neighbor who is a labor and delivery nurse helped as well. My mom was able to be there, which was such a blessing to us. One of our friends Gloria stayed with us all day to help with the kids and slipped in to see Madison's birth. It was absolutely wonderful to be at home and surrounded by so many lovely women and of course Joe who has to be the best birth coach on earth. Now we are enjoying our darling baby and watching the kids love on her. I am already imagining all three sisters in matching dresses, this is going to be fun!
