Welcome Home Madeleine


NYC Living

Our sweet rainbow baby.  There is nothing like loss to make you appreciate what you have. My heart and prayers go out to other Mama's and women out there working on having their rainbow baby and or even just their first (second, third...) little bundle. 

I was a little nervous to have a baby here in NYC with no family around and having a shared room in the hospital (which for those not familiar with what that entails, after giving birth you are placed in a recover room with a curtain to share with another woman and her baby. Sometimes there are three women you share a room with but I think that is rare). You can pay for a private room which Tay initially wanted us to get but I just wanted to tough it out. Luckily I got the side with the window, which I felt was heaven sent! I really feel like God filled in any voids that I was worried about, he didn't take away the fact that I don't have a mom here on this earth or family close by but he provided me with kind hearted friends to serve me during this time. The shared room I had was with a rowdy couple that had constant visitors but I was able to zone them out and focus on my little girl. Her birth really went smooth with no complications, which we felt incredibly grateful for! We were in the hospital for one night and went home the next day. A week later we had had these pictures taken and I am so glad we did to capture this special time.

Everyone prefers different stages with their little ones and minus that pain of recovery I truly love the newborn stage and just how sweet she is right now.
The sweetest details. She has such beautiful fingers and feet. 
This could of course change in the near future but Owen and Elle have welcomed Madeleine into our home with the most loving arms! They have both been so helpful and sweet towards her. 
Poor little Elle got a cut on her head the night before, I was going to have the photographer photoshop it out but decided to leave it to remember that this is just our life right now. Crazy things happen and that is just part of it.

Thank you to Stephanie Sunderland Photography for the beautiful pictures!

  1. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared
    to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I
    say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a
    signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
