Our Big Weekend Surprise...

Well this weekend we had big plans. Matt was going to take some tests and study for his finals. I was going to correct papers from school, start my third graders report cards, and try to get ready for a baby to come in a couple of weeks...

However, the baby decided to join us THIS weekend!
Saturday morning, I woke up at 5 am with contractions. I tried all morning to talk them into being false labor... they wouldn't listen. Later that night--technically the next morning--at 12:42 am our sweet little girl was born. She was very cooperative during the delivery. Everything went well and she came out a healthy, crying, 6 lb 10 oz, 18.5 in long, head full of long dark hair "Baby Carter". :-) She remained "Baby Carter" until today when we checked out and had to put a name on the birth certificate. We have struggled with this for the whole pregnancy and finally we decided she looked was Madeline Kate Carter, "Maddie."
Of course we are a little biased but we think she is very cute and getting cuter every second. Here are some pics of the big event...
