Chrissy said...

Honest answer now, were all of us pregnant at the same time? or are you breaking with your "tradition" and telling early? I am so happy for you guys! Congrats! (And you are going to do the triathalon while pregnant?! ...seriously, I think you are just trying to make the rest of us look bad here.)

Kim Madsen said...


That is so exciting! I want to know your due date! That makes 8 new little Madsen additions in 2008/09. Unbelieveable. You have a remarkable and beautiful family. All we have to do is look on Bianca's photography blog to see it for ourselves. Great pictures. I can't wait to see how the one's she did of us turn out.

Emilie said...

Chrissy - I am breaking with tradition and telling everyone early. But yes, we were all pregnant at the same time for about a week.

Kim - My due date is March 9th. Bianca did take some great pictures. Now I just have to decided which ones I want!

Congratulations!!!!! I love all the fun things about you! I have to say that even though it has been a long time I look up to you. You're awesome!!! Good luck on your training for the Triathlon. I have done one before and LOVED it! Well, loved that I did it anyway. (the one I did was a mini tri so don't be too impressed :)

BJ said...

Em-that is so wonderful. You are quite a woman. I hope to see you and your family on Aug 16!

Lawson Family said...

That was fun to read, most of the stuff I knew, but others were a fun to learn about you! I, too, am a Design Star junkie! I couldn't vote though because I like both of them for different reasons...

Colle said...

Congratulations!!! That is exciting. I love reading 100 things about people. I think bloggers need to do it like 4 times a year because it is so fun.

Brianna said...

Congrats for sure!!!

cwilson said...

Congrats Emilie!! That is very exciting!

kristin said...

Congratulations!! I enjoyed getting to know you a little better. One of the first things I learned about you was that you don't get epidurals with your kids. First off, I've never understood why people do that to themselves and 2nd why they do it multiple times. That shows what a determined person you are. Good luck doing it one last time! YEAH!

Skye O. said...

congrats on baby #4. How exciting! fun to learn more about you. you are amazing!

Elena Loo said...

Congratulations!! That is so awesome. I can't believe you. You are super woman!! So many new babies.. that's really exciting.

Hey - I can't remember the name of the signing helps you use. Was it signing time? I was just looking to order some and wanted to get the ones that you had recommended. Thanks!

Congrats again!!

Emilie said...

It is Signing Time. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in learning Sign....or are interested in their children not moving for a whole 30 minutes!
