New Member

Our most exciting news is our newest member of our family - Sadie Rose Medders. Sadie was born April 14, 2010 weighing 6 pounds 11 ounces and 19 inches long. She was the largest Medders baby to date. She is also the only full-term baby we have had. She was born 2 days before her due date. Callie and Wyatt are doing great with the new baby. Wyatt loves holding Sadie and talking to her and just touching her. He is really excited about when she can play with him. Callie is doing much better than Jason and I thought she would. We have seen no signs of jealously - just pure delight with her little sister. She loves pointing out Sadie's eyes, mouth, nose, hands, and feet. We are constantly reminding her to keep her fingers out of the baby's eyes and mouth. Sadie is very laid back which is such a blessing. She can sleep right through the chaos of our house. She is also very snuggly which is a lot of fun since Callie never was. As far as baby's go, she is a very easy baby. I am just trying to get adjusted to having three kids and balance my time with each of them and still keep up with the daily function of our house. Needless to say, the household part is really suffering these days. It is much more fun to play than to clean!


  1. Wow Kelli, I can't believe there has not been any mention of a pregnancy or anything!! Sadie just appeared!! LOL
    Seriously, I couldn't be happier for you all. I have followed your story from the very beginning and have loved keeping up with Callie and the rest of the family. Of course now that there is another little one I will love to read about her too!!

  2. Don't worry too much about the dusting and cleaning it will always be there later. You have a much bigger responsibility tending to those precious children. They grow up too fast. I think that you have your priorities right. Playing with those children is much more fun and rewarding.

  7. I have followed your story from the very beginning. The strength you have personally and w/in your marriage is astounding and inspiring. Your children are gorgeaus. You are blessed and you know it, that is the best kind of being blessed we can ask for. All my best to you and your family

  8. Kelli,
    I used to follow your googlepage religiously and realized over the weekend it had been over a year since I had checked in on Callie and the rest of your family and WOW, have I missed a few things. My heart grew when I saw that you all had had a new baby. Sadie is beautiful. I was shocked at how much Callie had grown and as an educator, so pleased to read about her improvement developmentally. I know that Wyatt starting Kindergarten has been such a change for you, as well, so hang in there mom. God Bless you all.
