Madden Grace Tjossem

Here she is...finally she has arrived.

We can't be more excited.

I cannot stay and blog long because, I can't stand to be away from my girls.
I wanted to give everyone the essentials.

Date: Oct 1 2008
Time: 11:55 AM
Place: Royal Woman's Hospital, Frances Perry Wing
Weight: 3.84 Kilos (8lbs 7ozs)
Length: 51 cm (20 inches)

Both Mum and Bub are doing well.
I think that they are both doing better than me, I am still in a state of being blissfully overwhelmed.

I promise that we will blog again in a few days, I am on my way back to see the two lovely ladies.

Bravo! She will always be my birthday twin, for 11:55 a.m. on 10/1/08 in Melbourne, Austraila is I believe 8:55 p.m. on 9/30/08 in St. Paul, MN, USA. And I also think I win the pool. Because it's all about me.

Oh yeah. You guys are part of this too. Congratulations! You are already the best parents ever.

Congratulations! You have truly been blessed with the precious gift of a daughter. Can you even believe something under 10lbs. has suddenly become the center of your universe?!

Mother-love (and for that matter, Father-love) has arms strong from lifting, a heart large with believing, a mind stretched with hoping, shoulders soft with enduring, and knees bent with committing. True mother-love never fails to point her child to the Author of Love.

Keep those photos coming!

Hooray! I was so excited to see the blog and photos! Madden is beautiful, and she has such a cool name. I hope you are getting a little rest at the hospital. Eric, you look like a bath pro already. Beth, you seem to have the happy Mom glow going strong. I love seeing this. Yayyyy! I'm planning to call tonight after my boys are in bed.

I am so happy for the three of you... what a lovely family. CONGRATS from the Granger clan in Florida ... keep the photos coming!!

How good can life be for you three right now? You have each other and now you share a part of each of you, your daughter. No matter what, Madden will live her life as Eric and Beth's little girl. That gift, no matter who we might believe gave her to you, be it God, Eric and Beth to each other, or an Aborigine Witch Doctor, it is a gift that not even a Master-Card moment could buy.

I just love the pictures. Makes me feel like we are a little closer than several thousand miles away. Madden is so beautiful. Elizabeth- imagined if you got paged everytime your daughter needed something- and you thought SPH was busy!!! Miss you.

Let's see- it is 3:22am in Australia according to the official blogger clock! And it is entirely possible the 3 of you are wide awake. Thinking of you today-excited for your visit to MN! And just to prepare you- it is snowing in MN- yes Australian summer sounds very appealing right now. Hope you're well!
