Presenting Madeline

My cousin Heather had her first baby, Madeline Christine, on September 27th. She was 6 lbs., 13 oz. and 19 3/4 inches long, and she has a ton of hair. It seems that a lot of babies being born recently have hair--our friends Steven and Jody just had their baby and he has thick, luscious hair. Must be the going trend.

She certainly is very cute. We probably won't see them for a while since they live in Tuscon, but maybe one of these days we'll get down there to see them. We've recently started dreaming about going somewhere warmer for Christmas...hmmm...

I love the fact that Heather has a baby. Heather is 17 years older than me and we had our first children just two months apart!

She got married last April and was playing with Mindy's baby, Kali, at the reception. Even though she had often mentioned not wanting to have any kids, she got this magical look in her eye when she was holding Kali that said perhaps she would change her mind down the road.

The look in her eye turned into Madeline, although I hear that Mel "talked" her into it...I'm pretty sure she really wanted one herself.

Another cute little cousin for Rachel to play with.


  1. They're in Tucson?? I wonder what ward...

    Probably not mine. There's a shocking amount of Mormons running around down here.

  2. not're supposed to come here.... remember?????

  3. That's COLDer...who knows what we'll end up doing. :) We'd love to come up, but I don't know if I want to drive all that way by ourselves in the snow.

  4. that's a lot of hair. wow. I hope our girl has a lot of hair :)

    she'll probably be bald.
