A little note to Megyn

Well baby Megyn you are just over a week old and your daddy and I can't believe how perfect you are. You are breast feeding like you have been doing it forever..You are hardly ever fussy only when you get hungry or you need a diaper change...You just love when your daddy swaddles you..It amazing how you calm down as soon as you get a "daddy swaddle." You are learning where you fingers and and have been trying to suck your thumb (just like your mommy did as a little one). You have the most beautiful lips, everyone thinks you look like your mommy...I was hoping you would get your daddy's feet, however it looks like you will be blessed with my flinstone feet (sorry munchkin). You remind your mommy and daddy a lot of your big sister Gwyn, because she always wanted her hands by her head. You always have your hands by your ears, except when you get a daddy swaddle...and even then sometimes you manage to get your arms free...So this week you have pooped on your mommy. I was changing your diaper and there it went projectile poop all over my tummy...I laughed so hard...it was so adorable, of coarse you weren't done and you decided to piddle on me too...You just love sleeping on my belly..I just love it...well until I am trying to feed you, don't worry I usually put a wet washcloth on your head and you eat away....Your daddy can't stop taking pictures of you, because we just think you are perfect....I just hope that when you get older you will realize how much your daddy and I love you....
The top picture was your daddy and I having fun with you by the Chrismas tree. The bottom one is right after you pooped on your mommy...You look so proud...lol...I love you Munchkin

Megyn Pictures

Well it has been almost a week since we welcomed our little princess into this world... We are still very happy and excited. She sleeps a lot so I have to wake her every 3 hours.. She is great at night. Logan and I feel great. Megyn has had many visitors. Our lab Koko loves her sister. Koko acts more like a mommy than a jealous sibling. Here are a few pictures we have taken. We are having professional pictures taken Friday, I can't wait to see how they turn out.

Megyn has arrived......Early!!!!

Megyn Velynda was born on 12/8/09 at 0212 am. She weighed 5 lbs 13 oz and was 18 inches long. She was born at 35 weeks 4 days. Megyn scored a 9 our of 10 on her apgar test. She is absolutely perfect. She was able to stay with Logan and I the entire hospital stay and we came home on 12/10/09. We feel so very blessed to have her in our lives....

Her birth story.....So I had been having contractions for weeks. I was on pocardia to help control them...Well on Monday 12/07/09 I was having more contractions than normal...We had dinner and I was just very uncomfy...I complained to Logan that I was done. I have been having contractions for too long and I just wanted to deliver her (I should have been careful what I wished for) So I got into bed and drank water around 7pm..I tried to relax and control my contractions. Well they were coming every 5 to 6 minutes apart. I really did not want to got to the hospital because I felt they would just send me home...Well at around 10 pm..one of my L&D nurses was on facebook...So I asked her, her opinion on if I should go to hospital or not. She advised that I should contact my doctors office. So I did. Dr. Monte called me right back..when I told him what was going on he told me to go to L&D...So I got up showered and packed a bag...We got to the hospital a little before 1 in the morning. Still thinking they would just send me home...We didn't bring Megyn's bag or carseat...just our stuff...Well once they checked me into triage..they called Dr. Monte...I heard the nurse say 30 minutes!?!? I asked Logan what was going on...he said he couldn't hear.. I figured they were going to give me a shot or put me on Mag sulfate to stop the contractions, because by now they were 2 to 5 minutes apart... The nurse rushed in and so did the charge nurse, they both started prepping me...I asked what was going on..They explained they only had 30 minutes to get me ready for a c section...I was like ...WHAT!!??? Totally did not expect this...Logan had enough time to run to the car and get the camera before they wheeled me to surgery...by 145am I had my spinal block and was waiting for surgery...I heard the Doctor say they were ready for the incision..and I realized Logan was not in the room yet. They ran and got him in time..It felt like it took for ever for them to get her out...Finally at 212 am I hear the loudest scream and lip quiver ever...She was so pissed to be yanked out of her cozy belly...Logan was able to cut the cord and stayed with her while she was cleaned up..Finally after what felt like FOREVER they brought her over to me...I couldn't hold back the tears of joy...Logan escorted her to the nursery. I had another hour of surgery left. Finally I went to recovery..Logan came in a few minutes later with Megyn...We were both so amazed they just gave her to him...We just weren't used to being normal parents...We held her for a while..She was so perfect,,,,,I was so in LOVE... We finally got to our room around 5 am they tried to let me sleep for an hour, but all I wanted was my little baby...they finally brought her to me...So needless to say, we did not sleep for the entire first day...she stayed in the room with us the entire time and has been just perfect,,,Logan and I are so happy to have our little munchkin. We both did so well they discharged us a day early. We are really enjoying being home where we can relax without tons of people coming into our room every 10 minutes....

2 weeks left!!!!

We had another doctors appt yesterday at 34 weeks 5 days. Megyn is weighing 5 lbs 7 oz. She is doing awesome. I am still having contractions about every 10 minutes. but my doctor thinks I can hold out another 15 days. I am just resting as much as possible. I finished all of my Christmas shopping. So now we are just patiently waiting for her arrival.

I had a friend Jim Houck from jameshouckphotography.com take some preggy pictures of me. He did a great job. I wasn't sure I wanted them, because if you have ever been pregnant you feel HUGE...but I knew that I would regret not getting them in years to come. So here are a few of the pictures.
