M birth announcement

Madeline Traniello was born at 5:25am on January 26th after a very quick labor. My water broke at home the night before and off we went to the hospital. I was shaking uncontrollably the whole way there because I was so scared for her since she was only at 32 weeks. She was going to arrive 6 weeks early whether we were ready or not! Contractions started at 4am. They started to get painful around 4:30. I caved and asked for pain meds at 5am....and learned it was too late! Madeline was born at 5:25am. This little girl was in a rush and she almost arrived before the doctor did!

Madeline just hours old

Our girl was sick. Her lungs were underdeveloped (normal for a baby born 6 weeks premature). She had some hurdles to overcome but she is a fighter and after a couple of really rough days she started to improve and continued to improve faster than anyone expected! After 12 days in the hospital she was released and our family of 3 finally went home (we lived in the hospital with her until she was released).

The last 3 months have flown by and I can barely believe that Madeline turns 3 months old today!! We couldn't be more smitten with our silly, sweet, girl!

Even with a new baby I have lots of new things in the works for Winifred Studios! I can't wait to share them with you!
