1 Month Old

Today Madeleine is 1 month old! She is growing quickly and already wearing 3 month clothes. We are loving every minute of parenthood but we sure are tired!

Madeleine has had a couple of "first's" this week... On Friday, she took her first bottle from Cameron. Hopefully, this will help me get more than 2 hours of consecutive sleep at a time - fingers crossed.

Then on Saturday, she rolled over from her stomach to her back. I thought it might have been a fluke but she's done it twice since then.

Here are some photos from today...

Thank You

I just wanted to thank my mom and Scott again for all their help the first few weeks after Madeleine's birth. There is no way we could have done it without your help and support. We love you both so very much and truly appreciate all you do for us.

Now, decide what you want Madeleine to call you already! My vote is for Mommom and Poppop!

Bath Time Fun

We gave Madeleine her first sponge bath on January 26 while my mom and Scott were still here. Here are some photos of her first sponge bath!

Here are some photos from her first tub bath on February 3. She actually doesn't mind the bath despite the look on her face. She's gonna hate me for this one day! :)

Welcome Home Madeleine

Below are some photos from Madeleine's first few days at home.

The Birth Story

Madeleine Revelle Thomson - January 22, 2012 at 11:19 p.m.
7 lbs. 5 oz. - 19 3/4 in. 

On Sunday, January 22 my water broke around 5:30 p.m. We called the on-call doctor who told us to go to the hospital immediately. Cameron and I were both pretty calm but Riley seemed to realize something was wrong and didn't want to let me out of his sight. He reluctantly went on a walk with Cameron while I finished collecting my things. 

We arrived at the hospital around 6:30 p.m. and they checked to make sure my water really did break before hooking me up to an IV and starting the Pitocin. The contractions began right away and about 2 hours later I had already dilated to 5 cm. This meant that I could get an epidural - YAY! Once I had the epidural, I was completely pain free and after about an hour I was already 9 cm. I started pushing around 10 p.m. and by 11:19 p.m. Madeleine was here! Fast, right?!?!
