We are going on week 3 with Miss Megan and she's doing great. She's sleeping great and eating great. We went to the doctor this past week and she weighed 9lbs 4oz. So she had gained 1 lb and 1oz in a week and 2 days. She's such a wonderful, laid back baby and we are so blessed to have added her to our family!

We were able to go on our first date night Saturday night since Megan had been born. Thank you to the grandparents that watched our babies for us. We had a great time and enjoyed it!

Well we took the girls to the doctors office for Ella's two year checkup and Megan's 4 day checkup. Ella weighed 28 lbs and is 34 in long. She's in the 75th percentile for height and weight and she's right on track for her age. And Megan was up to 8lbs 3oz and 20 1/2 in long. So she is now 1 oz over her birth weight, which is great. Just wanted to post this info so Mommy could remember it.
Ok...so this has got to be the most creative blog title post I've ever done. Ha. Anyway, moving on...so Ella came to the hospital to meet her new sister. Well within 10 minutes of her being there she fell off the couch onto the floor and got a huge goose egg on her head. It was so big the head nurse took her down to assessment to get checked out by the neurosurgeon. Poor baby. Thankfully, everything was okay. So needless to say we did not get the big/little sister pictures that Mommy wanted to that day. She even puked on herself on the way up to the hospital because she got a little choked on what she was eating. Hence the stains on her shirt. Poor girl was not having a very good day.

Megan Claire Parker made her grand entrance into this world at 1:55am on August 10, 2009 weighing 8lbs 2oz and measuring 20 3/4 in long. And it was her actual due date! So she was right on time. My water broke at home around 7:45pm. So I showered, finished packing, and we made our way to the hospital. As we entered the elevator in the hospital my water really, really broke and I pretty much created a flood in the elevator. Anyway, checked in at 10pm and she was here at 1:55am. Thank goodness it was fast because I went natural with this labor and delivery. Anyway, she arrived safely and healthy. And we could not be more blessed. Ella really is loving on her and the first time meeting between Ella and Megan definitely deserves it's own post. So that will be coming later.
