Madeline 12 days old

I finally took another portrait of Maddy. Here she is 12 days old. Her aunt Amy got her the dress which was so cute and fun to put on her, since she has only fit her PJ's until now. She is finally fitting into some of her Newborn size clothes. Who ever thought we'd have such a little baby. Her cute hair flower was a gift from our friend Kelly. Soo cute! I'll try to take some more pics once Maddy lets mommy get some sleep! (=

Madeline's First Impressions

Maddy left a great impression here! Check out Precious Prints by Barbara. It was so much fun!


I thought this was a cute picture of Maddy sunbathing in the window light. Just what the doctor ordered to cure our little jaundice baby.

Maddy's First Portrait by Mommy

Here is Madeline at 5 days old. She rarely opens her eyes since her favorite thing to do is sleep, but when she does she is sooo cute we try to keep her awake as long as we can. We never knew we could love someone so much.

Daddy's Favorite Pictures...

Here are a few of Tony's favorite shots. Here is Maddy's famous face she makes all the time which we think is so hilarious. Tony especially loves it when she does this for him. He can't get enough of baby Madeline. Tony is the best father and husband ever and has been so helpful and loving. We are very lucky to have him in our family.

Tony loves this picture he shot of Maddy and I today, wiped out on the couch. If only Maddy would sleep like this at night!

A gift for Maddy from her Aunt Katie

Here is Maddy showing off her first piece of jewelry, a tiny little bracelet which was sent all the way from Puerto Rico from our good friend Katie Hatch. We got it in the mail just in time for her to wear it the day she was born. All the nurses thought it was the cutest ever. We love it too! Thanks Katie!

Maddy's Loved Ones...

We just wanted to thank all our friends and family for all the help, meals, visits, and love. Maddy is so lucky to have so many loved ones in her life. Here are just a few images from some of Maddy's visitors so far. Hope to see more of you guys soon!

Madeline Paige Nguyen born April 12, 2008

Baby Madeline was born Saturday April 12 at 2:28 in the afternoon after only 4 1/2 hours of labor. She was only 7lbs 13 ounces and 20.5 inches long. She was alot smaller than the 9 pounds we expected. It was such an amazing experience, it didn't seem real at first. But here she is, we love more than anything. We think she is the cutest baby in the world! Check out her first portrait. (=

Maddy's Birthday is scheduled for April 12th!

We just found out from the doctor that we are going to have our baby this Saturday! We are so excited. I think that she must be a big baby, because the doctor was not planning on inducing us at all. And now we get to have her a little early, which I am very grateful for. She is estimated to weigh between 8.5-9 lbs. So we will see. The doctor always asks "How tall are you again?", which makes me think she is going to be big. We are very excited...we will be going to the hospital at 5:30am Saturday morning, be in labor all day, and hopefully have the baby out by 6pm (the doctor said). So we will keep everyone updated. Just wanted to share the good news!
Have a great day everybody!

The Chapman Family Portraits

Last week I photographed our friends, The Chapmans. They are an amazing family. They were so much fun and so full of life. It was really fun to see them together and how happy they were to just spend time with one another. We got some amazing images. Mommy Heather has been going through alot this last year and is truly an inspiration to so many people. She is such a wonderful mother and is always laughing. Someone everyone would love to be around. They are in our prayers!

Baby Madeline's Chubby Cheeks

Here is baby Madeline's most recent picture. This was her Valentine's present to daddy, she finally let us see her face! She has her daddy's chubby cheeks. Ok...and her mom's. (=

This was the last ultrasound where her head could fit into the picture. She is a big baby as the doctors have said. Just like her daddy wanted.

Baby Madeline 23 weeks old

The Wonderful Nguyens First Blog site

Finally we are bloggers! We had to succumb to all the pier pressure and jump on the band wagon with everyone else. Especially since we are very excited to announce the arrival of our first baby girl Madeline in 2 weeks ( hopefully less!). We will need somewhere to show off all Madeline's photo debuts! Hopefully she will learn to like being the daughter of a photographer and love having her picture taken. Though she has shown only her camera-shy personality in every ultrasound she has ever had, putting her hands over her face, not moving at all until after the ultrasound, or sucking her thumb. Hopefully she'll grow out of that before she arrives. (=
