Wistful Wednesday : April 17, 1998

Our middle granddaughter was born on this day in 1998, on a Friday.  You know what they say about Friday’s child..loving and giving.  Yes, she is most certainly that!

I didn’t remember it as a Friday. She was labored and delivered in ICU because her Mom had a previous C section and the Doc wanted her there.  Birthing a baby in ICU caused quite a bit of excitement for the patients that were aware..they we all asking about the baby.  She was perfect, I got to cut her umbilical cord and followed her after she was born to the NICU because her Mom could not.

She recently asked me if she could have been switched at birth.  I explained to her that there was no way that could have happened because I was with her when she was away from her Mother and I knew exactly what she looked like.

Maddie Fall of 1998  She had the cutest hair..it had a mind of it’s own and stood straight up.  She was such a good baby, and an even better baby when her Mother stopped nursing her…she has some immature tummy problems…that were solved with formula.  She liked to cuddle but when she was ready to go to sleep she liked to be put in her crib and covered with her blankie with the satin edge.  When you would put her down and cover her up she would reward you with a huge smile and swiftly she would be off to sleep.  No fussing..unless she was hungry…when she started to eat real food she loved cooked vegetables..carrots and green beans were her favorite she would stuff them in her mouth with both hands..she still likes her veggies.

Four generations Me, Trica, Savannah and Maddie and Madeline 1998  A four generation photo.  Me, Trica, Savannah holding Madison in one arm and a stuffed animal in the other and my Mother Madeline.  Madison was just a couple of weeks old in this photo. The photo was taken at my parents home on the lake.

Fifteen..just like that she is fifteen. Hard to believe how fast time flies!

She is all caught up with her homework after missing several weeks of school with Mono..she says she feels much better now.  Happy Birthday Maddie!

This is birthday week at their house Trica’s birthday is tomorrow.  When she was laboring with Maddie I suggested that she hold off for another twenty – four hours so she could share her birthday. I think she said “MOTHER are you nuts?”:)
