Well the big day has finally arrived (and a week early, to boot). It is my privilege to introduce to my SMF family the newest addition to my family.

My granddaughter was born this morning-March 25th, 2007 @ 8:47 am. This little Angel weighed in at 8 lbs, 2 oz and she's 21 inches long.

Please welcome Miss Madison Grace Dowdle-Cook.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, Mom and baby are doing just fine!! I'll post a couple of more pictures as they become available (Grandpa done forgot to take his camera with him to the big event
).

Congratulations Dutch. Thank goodness she doesn't look like you.

Better find a nice safe place around the smoker for a high chair.

Congratulations on the new arrival! Grandchildren are wonderful toys for grandparents to spoil and then return to their mom and dad! Kinda like a subtle form of payback! Gotta love it! Cherish her, Earle!

Cheers!

Congrats on the new grandbaby.....how many does that make for you? I have seven now and hope to get some more soon! I know that child will be spoiled as soon as you get the chance.Spend as much time with her that you can. They grow up so fast.

Paul, this is our 5th grandchild, we have 3 grandsons, ages 11 years old, 8 years old and 17 months. We lost a granddaughter last year that was born premature and now we have little Maddie. Those grand kids are from my 3 daughters. I still have 3 sons that need to get bit by the marrage bug, so I know there will be more grandbabys in the future. The two oldest sons are 24 and 23 and the youngest is 14.

To all: Thanks for the congrats and well wishes for Maddie, I've printed off this thread and given it to my daughter and SIL.
