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.
