“Cyber Shower Party Post”

She is in hiding... Welcome Madelyn!

5 minutes for Mom is having a Cyber Baby Shower. This picture is of me just after I delivered Maddie. She was a special baby to us for many reasons. She is my baby after our other baby went to heaven. So, Maddie is very special. I had very little amniotic fluid left according to the ultrasound on my due date, so they needed to get things moving. I went in that night to the hospital, and they put a pill in the nook of my cervix. Well, that really got things moving and about 4 1/2 hours later, my sweet pea was born. I did have an epidural, and she didn't respond well to that. I was hooked up to oxygen and needed to keep flipping from side to side. I was the biggest I ever was with pregnancies, so I was expecting a 9 1/2-10 pond baby. When I started pushing, it burned like fire down there...well, come to find out she was posterior (so she was sunny side up). Luckily she had a little mellon, so it wasn't too bad. When she came out, of coarse I was emotional, and the Dr. asked me how big I thought she was. I said, "Oh, 8 pounds?" The Nurse said, "No, she is little, she is more like 7 pounds." My best friend, Randi, was in there, and she took a guess at 6 pounds 8 ounces. Randi knows her baby weights, because Maddie clocked in at 6 pounds 9 1/2 ounces! What a little peanut! That was a new experience for me, because both my boys were over 8. Nathaniel was 8 1/2, and Caleb was almost #9! Her go home outfit didn't fit her until she was 3 months old. What a miracle she is!

What is your favorite Nursery Rhyme? I would say mine is the Little Miss Muffit. I know it isn't Lisa's, but I think it is cute. I also like There was an Old Woman....
