She’s Here

Our first child has arrived and she is absolutely perfect. Madeline Gale was born on 5 March, 2005 at 4:59am. She weighed in at 7 pounds 12 ounces and measured 21 inches long. She was born face up and while in the birth canal she inhaled a little merconium so she spent the first few hours of her life in an isolet crib with the oxygen content raised to 30% in order to help clear out her lungs. She did splendid and by Saturday afternoon we were giving her a bath and she and Mommy got their first opportunity to nurse. We are home now and our lives are so different than what they were just 6 days ago. She is simply perfect so without further ado here she is…


  1. She is so cute. Your lives will never be the same. Enjoy every minute, she will grow up so fast. I am so happy for all 3 of you.
