Father's Day 2011; 4 days old

I woke up excited and nervous.
I was invited over to spend some time with Madden and her Parents.
I wanted to go so badly, but I also didn't want to be interuptting their first official day as a family.
Plus it was Father's Day!!!
But eventually I gathered up the courage and drove over to The Couple's house.

I got to hang out with Stacy and Madden for a while since Justin was at church.
I taught Stacy how to give Madden a bath :)
It was great fun to just spend time and talk with Stacy.
She has become such a good friend of mine and I adore her.

Justin came home and it was so neat to be able to see this new little family together.

The only difficult part was thinking about how different this day could have been if Brandon had filed those papers...
But I tried not to dwell on that too much.

Leaving was a little bit hard, but knowing that Madden was never too far away and helped and I was able to go home with a plate of yummy cookies made by Stacy and zero tears.

Later that evening I went with my family to visit Grandma Rose who is in a rehab center.
She fell and broke her pelvis a few weeks before Madden was born.
I took the picture book that The Couple had given me that has pictures of Madden in it and passed it around the room.
Everyone commented on how cute she is and I lapped up the compliments and bragged about her.
I feel so incredibly lame for all the bragging and showing off of her I do, but I can't help it.
She is too dang perfect!!
