Madelyn is 2 weeks old

We have been having so much fun with little Madelyn. She is such a great baby and just fits right into the family. These are some of my favorite pictures of her so far...

ASU Game

Mike took Katelyn and Lauryn to the ASU/NAU game on Saturday. This was their first ASU game ever and they were so excited to go. ASU won the game so that was a plus! Katelyn said "the cheering was way too loud" and Lauryn said "the fireworks scared her out of her mind" but other than that, they loved it! =)

(And thank you, Brett, for the extra ticket!!! )

Go Sun Devils!

Brynlyn and her Piggies

The other day I was getting Brynlyn ready for preschool and she requested that I put "piggies" in her hair. I hadn't heard her call them by this name before so I said, "You want pig tails in your hair?" She said, "No! Piggies!" And then she started oinking like a pig. It just cracked me up. So we had to show off her favorite hairstyle: her piggies! =)

Madelyn's first week

We have been having such a great week with our little bundle of love. Madelyn is such a great baby and is even doing OK going through the night, so we're not entirely sleep deprived. This is what she's been up to this first week on earth...

Sleeping on Daddy's chest. I'm not sure who is actually putting whom to sleep. =)

Getting ready to go to our first doctors visit. These darling pink shoes are so teeny tiny. I love it!

And of course she has been held ALOT this week. And she's received tons and tons of kisses from her sisters. She rarely ever is put down when the girls are around. They love holding her every chance they can get.

The Polar Express

Almost every Christmas season we take a little trip up to Williams, AZ to ride The Polar Express train. The kids love it and it sets a great tone for the holiday season. This is the promotional video that they have posted on their website and our Katelyn is featured in the video! She has a quick speaking part at the very beginning of the video. She says "All aboard to the Polar Express." Thanks to Aunt Janelle for spotting this out for us or else we would never have known. This was taken a few years ago on one of our trips up there. You can see Ashlyn and Lauryn standing in the background. So cute and fun! Check it out...

I LOVE this picture! This pretty much sums up our life in a nutshell....surrounded by beautiful girls!

On Wednesday, September 1st we delivered our sweet little HEALTHY baby girl, Madelyn Jessie Jensen. She weighed 8 lbs. 8 oz. and was 21-1/2 inches long. She is oh so sweet and scrumptious and we are just eating her up!!!

Everything went so well with the labor and delivery, we were truly blessed to have such a wonderful experience bringing this child into the world.

She is named after two of her great-grandmas: Susie's Grandma Madelyn "Dear" Thornock and Mike's Grandma Jessie Jensen. One of the greatest parts to this story is that she is born on Grandma Dear's birthday!!! It has been such a neat thing to have that happen especially when it was so unexpected and I wasn't due for atleast another week and a half. What a blessing and we felt it was definitely meant to be.

We're just so happy that she's finally here with us. =)
