Madelynn Grayce is here!!

Madelynn Grace Hilligoss (or Maddie for short) was born September 29, 2008 @ 1:46 in Noblesville,In . She weighed in at 6 lbs 6.5 oz and is 18 in long. Mommy and her are doing well other then being very tire. Tasha had a rough evening after being induced and things didn't go as well as they thought. But after so rounds with her blood pressure she pulled thru ok. And was just in hard pushing labor for 1 1/2 hours. (but had been in some sort of labor since 7:30 the night before) Thankfully everything turned out ok and baby Maddie graced our world.

Two very happy aunts!!!
A sleeping princess
The very happy (but tired) family. Tasha was still on some meds that made her quite groggy. But she felt quite good other than being tired. I am quite proud of my brother. Mom said he was a GREAT coach....and Tasha was a trooper.
BIG FEET....takes after Daddy!!!

She ate pretty well and actually burped well too. She finished almost the entire bottle...the nurse seemed suprised when she came in.

Baby Jonny meets Maddie (they are cousins) He was so cute at first...but later he pulled her hat off. Looks like he is going to be a stinker to her. No really, he just kept staring at her and then looking up at the adults unsure of what to think of everything.

We love you baby Maddie....and hope you grow up to be healthy and strong. I also hope and pray the you learn early that Jesus can be your very best friend. He will always be there for you. I trust that you pattern your life after what Jesus would want for you. And Hang in there, I am going to bring you a play mate here soon.
