Madeline Elizabeth Murphy

"Goodnight little girls, Thank the lord you are well, and now go to sleep said Miss Clevel. And she turned off the lights, and shut the door. That's all there is, there isn't anymore."

My grandmother said this to my sister and I every night when we were little. This is the ending to the book Madeline, and how Justin and I came up with our little girl's name. (Pronounced "line" not "lynn") We were sooooo excited to welcome our little girl on Tuesday, April 6 at 9:42 am. She was 6 lbs 11 oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

After my appointment on Monday we had talked to the doctor and decided it was best to get the baby here and not wait till the next week. Justin and I got to the hospital at 7:30am and Maddie was here just a couple of hours later. Everything went great and she came out making lots of noise! The best thing I could ever hear!! We were able to leave the hospital early and came home on Friday. It is wonderful being home with Clayton, Maddie and Justin.

Clayton is a great big brother and is always saying "hi baby". Big brother will be celebrating his 2nd birthday tomorrow! Oh how time flies!

Awwww.... She is soooo beautiful, Sarah!! Grammy called me & apparently Aunt Grace said that Maddie was only 4 pounds- thank goodness she was wrong. What a perfect sized baby. She looks a lot like Clayton in the face too. Congratulations! Enjoy that sweet baby! She is precious!!
