Meet Madison Grace Merrifield

On October 19, 2014, Brandon and I welcomed our daughter Madison Grace into our lives. Referred to many times over by our nursing team as “nothing but a peanut,” Miss Maddie weighed 5 pounds, 9 ounces and measured 18 1/2 inches when she was born at 4:41 p.m.

In addition to a full head of hair, Madison has the most kissable cheeks and loves to curl up with her hands near her face – pretty much the position we found her in during every ultrasound.

I’m off to snuggle more with this tiny person who has already stole my heart. I promise to share more soon. In the meantime, thank you for allowing me to share this journey with you and sharing with our excitement!
