The Arrival of Baby Maddox

We had a great time preparing for little baby Vaughan's arrival. In the days prior, we spent lots of family time together.



The night before Heather went in for the scheduled C-section, we all sat around and reviewed the spreadsheet itenerary she had prepared for us. We were lucky enough to have an extra house guest. No not Lollie & GPops, although we were lucky to have them there too, but ROAN got to stay with us, so we had to know all about her busy schedule. To celebrate the coming day, we enjoyed some pink champagne left over from Thanksgiving (thanks to Andye & Gavin!)


The next morning, December 16, Lollie and I met Heather and Arwen at their house at 4:30AM! to head over to the hospital. I think Arwen was a little distracted or perhaps not awake yet. Here you can see he's wearing two different shoes. Silly Arwen!

And here my sister is preparing for the big (pun intended) event...



Scheduled C-sections seem like the way to go. Heather's appointment was at 7am, and the baby's birth time was 7:04! Surgery went without complication (whew!) and Heather was glad to not have labored this big boy -- 10 pounds, 3.4 ounces!




Heather was a champ throughout recovery in the hospital.

Here we are visiting her in the hospital.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch (home), Roan was putting on a magical Winter Celebration at school. Since her mommy and daddy were busy at the hospital, Lollie, GPops and I got to go check it out. It was adorable! The class sang songs together and then had brunch. It was a really great experience to meet her teacher and classmates.

The next day, Roan got to play with Audrey all day (thanks again, Scott & Molly!) while Lollie and I shopped. By the time we got to the hospital, Roan was sacked out. The two Vaughan kids look pretty snuggly.

The next day Heather & Arwen brought Baby Maddox home.


But the fun didn't stop there!



Lollie and I took Roan to a puppet show (for big girls only!)

Here Roan & Lollie are making their very own puppets!

We also enjoyed some delicious dinners over at Sis's house.

And then it was time to prepare for the babies' first Christmas!

  3. She is in charge of a large company,Christian Louboutin sale who looks pretty capable, is not to solve personal problems. Excellent condition, she always want to meet a perfect Prince Charming then, although there are several around the pursuit of the object, no one can be tempted her. Summer, and she was ready to buy a pair of high heels. Her shoes are picked, depending on brand, depending on the quality, but also the style. She traveled all over the city several large shopping centers, is not elected to the satisfaction of heels.Shewaswandering fast day, and feet also learned how to bubble. Finally, she took a fancy pair of red high-heeled shoes, slender heel, ankle wrapping ribbons, very sexy, and she bought it to try it. She could not wait to put on a pair of sexy red high heels, the old shoes thrown into the bag. Then she tired not to find a restaurant, hard to drink a few glasses of water, and eat - and a package. After a rest, she noted that there was a neighbor of the man wearing glasses and looked very ordinary. Attract her attention, he stood beside a transparent plastic bag, placed inside a pair of white flat heels, wore a few on the upper hollow stem flowers, very delicate. She could not help more beautiful pair of shoes awhile, admire it. This man really going to pick the shoes, Christian Louboutin Boots and his girlfriend get such a pair of shoes will be very happy.
