More from our first week!

Our beautiful little girl in her daddy's arms



Mom and Madeline had trouble with the lights!

First bath (Kathy... notice Mike's shirt!)



Madeline got out from under her jaudice lights today and she is much more happier! She also had her first bath at home today, and she actually slept right through it. We are having a blast and thought we would share some more pics with all you family and friends that we can't wait to introduce her to!

A couple more pics!













We just wanted to post some more pics for y'all who can't meet Maddie yet! We are finally home and are doing pretty good. She had a little jaudice so we had to use the lights last night which she did not enjoy, but hopefully worked it all out. Maddie is such a joy! Hope y'all enjoy seeing some more pictures!

Welcome Madeline Elisabeth Frantz






Our day started yesterday at 5 am when my water broke! After getting to the hospital and getting settled in the labor pains really started. Graciously God did not prolong her delivery too long and at 5:03 pm, brought our daughter Madeline into the world! She weighed 6 lbs. and 15 oz. was 19 1/2 inches long and as you can see has a head full of dark brown hair. She is precious and we are all doing great! We can't wait for everyone to get to meet our little joy!

Graduation Day!!!!



Today was the big day that Mariah received her Master's of Divinity from Southern Seminary.
In his commencement speech President Al Mohler talked of the things a graduate accomplishes during their time of study at Southern. Such as a training in the biblical languages, a solid foundation in biblical doctrines, and apologetics. But as I sat and listened to him talk I couldn't help but to think of the things Mariah threw on top of all theses challenges, especially in this last year and a half. A wedding, balancing a new marriage, and a pregnancy. But like her classes she past with flying colors. I can't begin to explain what it means to me to have such a wonderful wife and I could not of asked for a better helper by my side. I know each person who knows Mariah is proud of her (especially those back home), and thanks for all the support. Hopefully our next post will be of little Madeline!!
