A Puppy and his Baby!

I think it's obvious from the pictures that Sarge loves Madeline. Dixie still isn't quite as sure so she hasn't posed for any pictures yet!

Newborn Pictures

Who knew finding the perfect outfit for Madeline's newborn pictures would be so difficult? We found lots of great stuff, but once again, everything was way too big! We finally found the cutest dress that looked super cute on her so we had to take pictures at home too!

Visiting Shelby Anne in the hospital the day she was born

It's crazy what two pounds can do. Madeline weighed 5lbs 11 oz at birth and four days later, Shelby was born weighing 7lbs 7 oz. I wish two pounds would make that big of a difference on me!


Madeline got her first bath and absolutely hated it! The next baths went a lot easier. I don't think she loves them now, but she'll at least put up with them without screaming!

Hands on Daddy!

Tyson is such a great daddy! He changes diapers, gives baths, and does basically anything Madeline could need (well, other than the feeding part) without even having to be asked. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful husband and Madeline could not have a better dad!

Madeline's Bassinet

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful, loving and supportive family. Tyson's mom and grandmother made this bassinet. It used to be the bassinet Tyson slept in just redone for Madeline.

Going home!

On the afternoon of December 4th, we got discharged from the hospital. I had gone looking for the perfect going home outfit for Madeline. Of course, I didn't anticipate that she'd be quite as small as she is so it was enormous (just like the rest of her clothes), but cute nonetheless!

In the hospital

We had lots of people that came to visit us (well really mainly to visit Madeline) while we were in the hospital. I'll spare all the pictures, but here are a few. Everything went so well while we were there that they discharged us 24 hours after Madeline's birth.

Madeline's Birthday

What a special gift we have just received! Madeline Ann Theilen came on December 3rd at 1:06pm weighing 5lbs 11oz. I was blessed with a short and easy labor!
