Blessing day

Megan was blessed on Sunday July 25th. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and we were able to really enjoy it. We got to church early and saved a few benches for our family that are not members and who came from out of town. When it was time for her blessing the Morse family still hadn't arrived and I was stressed, they came from Yakima 2.5 hours away and got a hotel. So they waited a minute and took their time organizing and lucky for us they walked in. Britt called Rick up with the microphone and the family scrambled to sit anywhere. Britt gave her a beautiful blessing and I cried. When it was over the Bishop said that Megan is a miracle baby...we say that all the time. Some people came back to the house and of course Megan decided she was starving so I went to feed her so she didn't have to cry the whole way home. We got home and started eating and talking and trying to stay cool! The kids stayed cool with playing in the water. Megan is such a joy in our family.

I will add pictures soon!

New Pictures!

Feel asleep like this. Megan is funny because she always has her hands by her face. She pinches her checks and pokes her eyes. Nursing is like fighting a ninja at times just to get to her mouth. Luck for us she hasn't scratched herself bad enough to bleed yet. She very much dislikes having her arms swaddled to her sides. She is not a morning baby, very much a night owl. When I say this it is because she likes to stay up until 11 or 12 every night and not always happy either. She does sleep until usually 5 or so though and goes right back to sleep, wakes up to eat at about 8 or 9. So I am not complaining too much. She also takes about a 3 hour nap in the afternoon. The rest of her eating times are about 2 hours apart and sometimes only an hour apart for a snack. I can't really believe it has been over 3 weeks though. Poor Alexis and I have watched a lot of netflix and are happy the weather is finally nice enough to go outside and play!
Love this picture even though there are shadows big time. She has the cutest happy face!
Her daddy does the same thing with his forehead! It is funny that she does it too.
First day of church! This dress and the tights where mine and Alexis wore them also.

Ok so life with a new baby has made some big changes around here. I am just starting to get some sort of normal routine...and then today Alexis wakes me up at 5:30am. Ohwell guess we will have an early nap time today. I also am finally taking Megan to get some pictures taken today! We just love this baby to pieces. Alexis picks her up way too much for my liking, kisses her every time she sees her and wants to hold her always(even when she is eating or screaming!) So I am getting requests for more pictures and so here they are! I have more on the other camera but it is in the car.

Scroll down for our birth story! We took Megan to the doctor today and she weighs 7pounds 5 ounces! So we must be doing something right even if it hurts sometimes!
