She's here!

Madeline Jane Livingston (Maddie)

...was born on March 29th at 10:42pm!
She weighs 6 lbs 9 oz and is 20 inches long. Her head is 13 1/2 inches around.
She came after 12 hours of labor (after my water was broken) and 1/2 hour of pushing, and we were able to avoid having her via C-section, for which we are so thankful. She is already a good eater and sleeper and hardly cries at all.

Here are a few pictures of Maddie's first day of life!

First moments with my sweet girl... I am a little excited

Welcome to the world, sweet Madeline! We love you so much.
