Here She Is!

Home at last!

Sleeping Beauty

Who does she look like...Jim or Jaena?

(Yes, she looks like Elisha.)

Ready or Not...

Just like in a game of hide and seek, when you're searching for the perfect hiding spot but before you can locate one, you heard the words ring out "Ready or not, here I come!" You panic...not yet... I'm not ready!

That's pretty much how we felt after being told that our baby was coming 6 weeks early...ready or not. But after a variety of complications (the details of which you will be spared) and less than 4 hours of actual labor, she was here...
Madelyn Grace Womack.

The Stats

Date of Birth: January 7, 2006

Weight: 4 pounds, 3.8 ounces
Length: 17.5 inches

Madelyn was in great condition and needed no help breathing or doing anything, really. She did stay in the hopsital for 18 days to learn to eat and maintain her temperature; but overall, she was in excellent shape. We brought her home from the hopsital last Tuesday weighing 4 pounds 12 ounces, and today at her check up she was already up to 5 pounds, 4 ounces.

So, we are together and are grateful for the blessings of health, family, life, and God's perfect timing...ready or not.
