I'm Here!

Madelyn Olivia Knipe was born on December 29, 2009 at 1:33 am. She weighed 6 pounds, 15 ounces and was 20 inches long. She is totally healthy and as the Doc said, has the most perfectly round head she has ever seen.

After a long stay in the hospital, we got to come home on New Year's Day. Mommy is still sore from the c-section and 20+ hours of labor, but is doing better and and better every day. Maddy is doing just great! She is VERY alert when she is awake. She loves to just look all around, especially at the scrolly ironwork that is hanging behind the couch. So far she has been a great sleeper. She tends to sleep 3-4 hours at a time, with a few longer stretches. (We had to wake her up to eat this morning after almost 5 hours.)

I'll probably post her birth story on here soon. Its still pretty fresh on my mind, but if i don't get it written down somewhere, I will start to forget all the details.


  1. Welcome Madelyn! Your mommy & daddy are awesome so you are in good hands! :D

    Congrats again guys!

  2. Do write down the birth story...even if you don't share. It helped me soooooo much with Madeline's birth since I ended with a c-section (which I honestly never considered as an option).

    Congrats on your Madelyn!
