Our Baby Girl is Here!

Posted by Madison on July 9, 2009

Our family just got a little bigger, when we welcomed our new baby girl into our home. Her big brothers are excited and we’re delighted to finally have a girl in the family! (I come from a large extended family of way too many boys!)

Just like our boys, she showed up almost a week past her due date. I also spent some extra time in the hospital due to a c-section, but we’re both home and doing well. Thanks to all of you who have sent emails wishing us well!

Now it’s time to open her ING account to get a $25 Bonus! I’ll also be working through our Financial Checklist for Infants soon to update our wills, beneficiaries, and change our tax withholding.

Until I get around to that, I think I’ll just get some sleep! In the mean time, you’ll continue to see some great guest posts submitted by readers.

  3. Congrats.
    Question about opening an ING account, are you opening it under her name (separate account) or is it under your name and you are just opening a “sub” account?


  4. Congratulations! Daughters are the best. I have two and never knew that I could have so much love in my heart for them. Glad everything is going so well for you!

  10. Congratulations!!!!


  11. Congrats! Hilarious that you can’t wait to open an ING account for her. When do babies get SSNs?

    Anyhow, get some rest!


  12. Congratulations. I am so happy for you. We had some experience with C-sections with our kids. Keep moving to help relieve the soreness.


  13. Glad to hear you and baby are home and doing well! Congratulations!

  16. Congrats, Madison and family! 🙂

    I plan on opening an ING account for our little one in the near future. Good thing because now I can use her referrals. 🙂


  17. Congrats!!


  18. Thanks everyone! We’re having a wonderful time as a family of five.

    @ Wayne: To open the ING account for a child, I open a separate account under her name. That way she gets the bonus money. In addition, the interest will be excluded from our taxable income.

    @ Jonathan: If you fill out the form in the hospital, it took a couple weeks to get the SSN from what I remember with the boys.


  19. Awesome! Congrats Madison and family! 🙂 Must be a handful! I’d love a daughter too… but alas, too late for us…
