Family Christmas Pictures

Sorry these are a little late of pictures for Christmas, but I thought I'd wait till we had baby Megan. Here are some pictures of us in our house by our Christmas tree. I thought I'd also take some fun pictures of Megan in her Sunday dress even though I wasn't able to take her to church today. Jackson is still loving being a big brother as you can see. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas, and will have a Happy New Year!

Welcome home Baby Megan!

So, we had a little bit of a surprise this past Friday. I was due on Christmas Eve to have our baby girl, but the doctor told me that we would plan on delivering me on Monday(would have been today) since I was already dilated to a two and 75 percent effaced. However, our baby girl had another plan. I woke up on Friday morning to notice that I was kind of wet. I wasn't sure if my water had broken or what, but I thought it would have been gushing water coming out like it did with Jackson when my water broke. So, I figured I'd call my doctor and inform her what was going on. She told me that she wanted me to go to the Birthing and Delivery area to make sure everything was okay. Dave had a meeting he was suppose to be at at 7, but that wasn't looking too promising. We woke Jackson up and we jumped in the car. We got to the hospital and they checked to see if my water actually broke. They said it had, but was slowly. We were planned to stay until we had our little baby girl. This was a little bit of an unexpected event I would say. Anyway, Megan Maatje Pendleton was born on December 19 at 6:38 p.m. weighing 7 lbs. 8 oz., 20 inches long. (Maatje is a Dutch name from David's mom's side. The "j" is pronounced like a "y", so you say her name like "mafia" but with a "t" instead of an "f") Here are some pictures of us at the hospital right after the she was born. Jackson was a little unsure about her at first, but then he really warmed up to her. He wanted to give her kisses, hugs and hold her all the time. He's been such a wonderful big brother already. We have been so blessed with two wonderful kids.

Grandma Pendleton came out here to help us out with having the baby. It's been great having the extra help with Jackson and all.

So, yesterday we went to the doctor to find out how I'm doing with the pregnancy and all, since I only have a week left. She told me that I progressed a lot and am now dilated to a 2 and am 75 percent effaced. Great news! So, she said to just plan on Monday to deliver the baby. We have it all scheduled to go in at 7 in the morning to have the baby, unless she comes earlier, time will tell. Wow! Crazy stuff! We totally can't believe we're going to have 2 kids. I'm so ready though to not be pregnant anymore. Although, I know that as soon as that baby comes out I'll be asking for her to go back in.
