Olivia Rae Maddox

She is HERE! A Leap Year Baby!!!

Olivia was born today at 11:46 am this morning at Gwinnett Medical. I was 38 weeks and 3 days and 6 days short of my scheduled c-section.

My water broke at 6am this morning. We took Grace to our friends Phil and Jennifer. My parents drove in from the lake and Aunt Carrie drove in from South Carolina. Both got here in time for the delivery.

Olivia is a big baby 9lbs 1oz and 20 1/2 inches long. She has tons of dark hair especially on the back of her head.

We are hoping Grace will be making it up this afternoon to visit.

My last pregnancy picture...taken right before we left the house. Notice the unfinished floors.

Getting ready for surgery.
I'll save you the birthing pictures so I'll go right to the scales. What a chunker, good thing she didn't have another week to grow.


Picture with Dr. Fountain. He did a great job, I have such a wonderful doctor.

Proud grandparents of third grandchild.

More pictures coming soon!

We are so excited for you. It looks like Olivia might have a mind of her own since she did not come according to your plan. Watch out! Seriously, we are so excited for you, but Hunter is going to be upset she came early. He was excited about sharing his birthday with Olivia. She is so beautiful. Congratulations.

Mark, Donna, Hunter, & Jordan
