First picture of Annie! Welcome to the family!
I was lucky enough to fly to Texas on Saturday, Oct 27th.
Brian and Maden met me at DFW Airport. On our way to Weatherford, we stopped at a park in Fort Worth for Maden to go to a birthday party for a little friend.
Sunday, I went to church with Brian and Maden, it was so fun to be with Maden again, I have missed him! On Monday, we went to Texas Roadhouse for Celia's "last supper". She was scheduled to be at the hospital at 5:00 am Tuesday morning for a C-section. About 1:15 am Brian came in and told me that Celia was having contractions and they were heading to the hospital. They were able to stop the labor and go ahead with the C-section at the scheduled time. Brian called and said Maden and I could head on over to the hospital about 8:30. We were both excited to meet Annie!
Beautiful little lady. She looked a lot like Maden when he was born, smaller, but very similar features.
Maden and I stayed at the hospital for awhile, then went home for a nap, then we went back to see Mommy and Annie again. Wednesday was Halloween, we went back to the hospital to visit again for awhile in the morning.
Maden and Brian played at the hospital playground for awhile, then Maden tried out Mommy's hospital bed and drank some sparkling cider in a fancy glass.
Maden also wanted to try out Annie's hospital bed! We sang Happy birthday to Annie over some cupcakes we made and decorated(We did this on her actual birthday). Pretty sleeping baby.
We went Trunk or Treating at the church. Maden was way impressed with all the candy he got. He was very good at saying Trunk or Treat and Thank you.
Thursday, November 1st, Annie and Celia got to come home! Maden got to have a little ride in the wheelchair.
Helping feed Annie. Beautiful Annie.
All cleaned up and smelling so sweet!
Maden is such a good little self entertainer.

Having more fun with letters. Brian made this Alphabet hop scotch for Maden, he loved it and got pretty good at hopping!
