So I know I haven’t blogged in a long time but I have a good excuse. On February 10, 2011 at 10:44 am, Chris and I welcomed our baby boy to the world, Maddox Ryan Leonard. He weighed 8lbs, 8oz and was 20 3/4 inches long.
A week before his delivery we found out that a C-section was the safest way to deliver him because his estimated weight was already 9lbs. When we decided on the date, 2.10.11 we never thought that we would have this to deal with this.
That’s right, we got 8 inches of snow the night before Maddox was born. As everyone knows, in Arkansas we don’t get a lot of snow, so knowing Maddox was going to come into this world on such an amazing day was exciting.
Here are a couple of pictures of our neighborhood.
All of these pictures were taken the night before Maddox’s delivery.
On the morning of the big day it was beautiful outside. The sun was out and the snow was dazzling. I was so nervous because I did not know what to expect. In all the morning chaos I did manage to get a couple of pictures before we left to go to the hospital.
Chris and I had no trouble getting to the hospital in the snow.
When we arrived at the hospital they took me straight back because the doctor had arrived early and waiting on us. After I got prep for surgery it only took the doctor 4 minutes and Maddox was here.
Our first family picture.
I can not explain to you how much I love this little guy.
Next blog there will be more pictures but I have to go feed Maddox now, lol.
