Introducing Maddox


It has been more than a month since I posted here. Writing IEPs drains the creative process in other areas of my life.

But I'm baaaaaaack blogging! Here is the newest branch on our family tree, Maddox Dean Crawford McBroom. In the first photo his daddy shot, Max is less than 30 minutes old.

We had a Maddox Eve dinner the night before he was born. Before we all went our separate ways, I took a photo of his great-grandparents because his two middle names honor them and their branches of the family tree. Dean comes from his dad's grandmother (she's the one in the pink coat) and Crawford is his mom's granddaddy's middle name (he's in the green sweater).

Statistics at birth: March 18, 11:44 AM. 7 pounds 10 ounces, 20 3/4 inches.

Statistics of elated emotions: unmeasurable.
