In need of a little sleep

Morgan finally asleep this morning.
After a feeding she had quite the energy.

Yesterday, right after waking up from a nap. A very short nap.
Joel and Kristy sent us this wonderful wrap blanket, to bad she freaks out when her arms are tucked in.

I had planned on taking some wonderful pictures of our beautiful baby morgan, but she has not slept nor have I so you will just have to have some snap shots for the next few days until we are caught up.

On Wednesday we left the hospital and came home, which was wonderful, however I didn't realize how much Morgan moved and grunted while asleep. My idea to have her in our room only lasted one night, because she makes to much noise. Our first night home was not too good, Morgan got an upset stomach and could not sleep and would spit up anything fed to her. She is now doing much better and hopefully we will get caught up in sleep she only slept for 9 hours yesterday so hopefully she will be a zombie today. She did much better last night so let's hope for improvement in the next few days. But since she doesn't sleep she is alert and fun to look at, I love it when her eyes are big and she stares in my direction.

She's so cute

There is one happy dad!

Morgan's second cousin Maddie gets to hold her for the first time.

Tyson will be great dad someday, and this picture alone shows why.

When Morgan is awake, she is so content and alert. She loves to suck on her index and middle fingers, and just take in the scenery with wide eyes. We have been blessed to have such a well-behaved little girl. Hopefully that persists for the next 18 years or so.

Morgan Marilyn Snyder

Last night, we welcomed a new addition to our family. Morgan was born January 26 at 8:27 PM. We went into the hospital the night before only to be sent home shortly thereafter. We went for a walk the next day to try and help things along and that did the trick. I was admitted at around 2:00 already having dilated 5 centimeters. For about an hour, I battled on my own and then I received that blessed epideral. Things went very smoothly from then on. She crowned before the doctor could even get there and so Morgan chilled for about 15 minutes with her head stuck in the ring of fire. She had a nice cone head afterwards thanks to that. A few small pushes later she was out into the world. I guessed her height and weight exactly: 7 pounds 2 ounces and 20 inches long.

She had a little bit of a hard time breathing in the beginning, so they sent her off to the NICU to be treated by a respiratory therapist. My Aunt Megan works at this hospital as a respiratory therapist and she assured us that we were in good hands. It was a little sad to see her hooked up to all that equipment, but she was a trooper and was good to go down to the well-baby nursery after about an hour.

Though we welcomed the fact that she was being such a good baby, it was good to finally hear her cry when they gave her the Hep B vaccination.

She is the most adorable little baby girl ever. We are so happy to have been blessed with a healthy baby. She has already brought us so much joy.

Our Baby Could Come Soon

We are getting excited, for our baby Morgan to come! We went to our first prenatal class today. I watched a birthing video and I am not sure why they show them to you, it just makes you more nervous to have a baby. Even with watching that video we are still excited for her to come. I went to the doctor and am dilated to a 3 already, but the doctor said that doesn't mean she will come right away but she thinks I will have the baby a few weeks early.
