My baby sister just had the most gorgeous little girl…Madilyn Josephine, Maddy Jo, for short. What a sweetheart she it! She arrived Friday night at 7:50pm and was 9lbs 2oz and 20inches long. Which meant she was ready for cuddling straight away! And believe me, she especially loves her Aunt Jenny.

I was there on hand to document the story. Birth photography was hard work, but I am was honored to have been able to be there when Mandy first held Maddy in her hands, when my parents walked in the room and saw their first grandchild. I have been able to watch my father melt before my eyes and become absolutely smitten with Maddilyn…and he is not afraid to act a complete fool making cooing sounds and funny faces. Its wonderful and surreal to see how our family is growing and evolving, the dynamics changing.
