Out of Commission

The latest addition to our fam was added Feb. 25. I'd love to go into all the gory deets, but it seems like people prefer sharing the delivery details rather than hearing them....so if you really want to know I'll tell you in person. The end result was Sydney. She's our tiniest at 6 lbs 15 oz, but also our earliest at 38 and a half weeks.

The above picture is of my two frequent visitors to the hospital, Ethan and Noelle. They were getting a little too comfortable with all the hospital equipment and I sense a future in medicine for both of them. If you peek into the background you will see my in my very stylish and modest hospital gown. Unfortunately none of the pictures where I look like Heidi Klum turned out so you will just have to take my word for it.


Upon returning home from the hospital, Baby Sydney (seems Baby will be her first name as far as the kids can tell) was immediately bestowed with the most honored stuffed animals. She also was given some hard toys like cement mixers and cars, but I removed them for the picture. And for her safety.
We are quickly adjusting to the newest member of the fam. So far she has been an excellent day sleeper, so-and-so night sleeper, and a very quick mover of her bowels. Was that too personal? Anyway, this may be the last update for awhile depending on my sanity level. Don't worry though, I'll be sure to post her first steps.

How wonderful of Sydney to come a little early. You delivered a day before Wendy--two new babies for our ward/neighborhood. She's adorable.

Oh, she is a really cute newborn. I can't wait to meet her. We(addie and I) will visit soon.

I am glad you posted some pics so all of your viewers can see how precious she is!!!

I love the stuffed animals in the carseat.

You don't need to give the impression that an all-day sleeping newborn really has you bustin' your buns. You've got a couple weeks of blogging to go before you're really going to need some time-off. And that is when I'm going to bring you some din. In 2 weeks.

And it is true: Sydney is super cute.

whenever I see the words "out of commission" I immediately think "yeah, me too" but in this case - I don't have ANY comparisons!!

Congrats again - she's a beauty!

She is adorable! And although you will have 2 in medicine, it looks like you may have a future zoo keeper as well.

Keep up the good work...

Congrats on the littlest of the litter! She looks so small...not that she would look big-but it's been awhile since we had a new- born around here. And, does out of commission mean you guys are hurting for money...cuz that's a little desparate dontcha think?

Hi Megan, I must admit I have been blog stocking your family for a couple of months. I think I got your blog address from the high school blog :) I absolutely love your posts. They always make me smile. I can’t believe you just had your 5th!!!!!(She is darling by the way) when we moved I think Mitch was just a baby. Wow time flies. I still just have our 2 (kind of sad) but they keep me busy. Well I am so glad you’re doing well, and keep up your great post.

Congrats!! She is cute as can be. I hope that you are feeling well. I'm sure that the hardest thing you are up against is keeping her safe from her big brothers and sister! I know they love her to pieces, but sometimes it seems that they take the "TO Pieces" literally, if you know what I mean. Have fun, new babies are the best!

Jessica said...

OH! im so excited to have a new baby girl cousin!! (Sydney is still my niece so deal with it meg! ha ha ;))

Heidi Ashworth said...

I noticed you weren't posting--I was hoping it was b/c this beautiful babe had come and not something awful, like an allergy to the internet or something really tragic like that. Congrats!

LC said...

Oh, so cute. I'm glad everything went well...and when we were up for baby B's blessing today I was tempted to dash over to your place so I could hold a little newborn again. Cannon's fun but he pulls hair.

Rhonda Can't Help You said...

Congrats- she looks (at least to me) like Noelle. Can't wait to meet her. I'm SO homesick!

Hi Megz
I stumbled across your blog on LDS BLOGS. I thought you mighe be interested in a site my wife and I just built called MormonsMadeSimple.com, which uses simple, explanatory videos to explain the Mormon faith. Feel free to feature any of these videos on your blog, or just share them with non-member friends. We're hoping these videos will be missionary tools to help members share their beliefs. Anyway, sorry to spam your comments section. I couldn't find any contact information for you on your blog.
