On Tuesday night around dinner time, Keisa started having the long awaited labor pains.
By 4 am, beautiful little Madilyn Kate was born.
Although Keisa was full term, Madi Kate was actually delivered a week earlier than expected. She is 19″ long and weighs in at 7 lbs, 11 oz – me thinks she would have been a tough cookie to deliver if she had another week to grow!
The birth of Madi Kate actually made Tristan (7) a BIG BROTHER!! Tristan is actually Jeremy’s favorite in Sunday School. He is very sweet and I am sure he will do a fine job in helping take care of his new little sister. Not that Keisa will need it – she is a nurse & the real Susie Homemaker. She does need to heal though – so you can pray for that!
We are very excited for the Taylors and actually got to visit with them on Madi’s birthday with our friends – the Suters. Madi was so tiny! Jeremy got to hold her for a bit – first time holding a newbie! And that was only for a bit cause Brook & I couldn’t hold her enough!!! The little bambino was so adorable I actually thought I could probably stick her in my jacket and make a run for it but alas – I didn’t have keys 🙂
Babies are truly a miracle. Congratulations you guys! We love you!
