Who is who?!

My mom came down today to help me out and so I could see Madden. She also helped me give Nash his first little bath at home! I was looking back through the camera and was shocked at how much Nash looks like Madden. We pulled out Maddens first bath pictures and couldn't help but laugh at how much they look alike. What do you think? The first picture is Nash and the second one is Madden.

Nash Karson Morgan

      Our little guy finally decided it was time to come. It was very unexpected like it has been from the  beginning but we are absolutely in love with him in every single way. Here is Nash’s story.
       I had a regular appointment on Monday morning and right before I got a call from Grandma Red asking if she could come over and watch Madden so I didn’t have to worry about taking him with me. I almost said no because my appointments are usually quick but for some reason I took her up on it and I am so grateful I did. They were running late and so I didn’t even get to see my Doctor until an hour after my appointment. I remember thinking I am so glad I didn’t bring Madden. He checked me and I was still at a 3 and 50 percent same as last week and the week before. My Doctor had talked about starting me that night because he was leaving out of town Wednesday but still wasn’t sure so he sent me down to have a non stress test. Once again I remembering thinking I am so glad I didn’t bring Madden. About 30 minutes into the NST the nurse came in and said that the baby wasn’t cooperating and that I needed to switch positions. Ten minutes later my Doctor came in and said that I wasn’t going home and that they were starting me now and left. I started to panic not sure what was going on and I was all alone and poor Grandma Red thought she would be watching Madden for an hour not the whole day! I called Karson who was working in Salt Lake and told him to come home because they were not letting me go. It turns out it wasn’t a dyer situation with the baby but it could become one if they didn’t get the baby out. They called it variability which means the baby’s heart rate should go up and down and Nash’s wasn’t so that meant he wasn’t getting great oxygen. They started me on the pit at about noon and right away I started feeling those lovely contractions. About 2 hours into it I was thinking an epidural was sounding nice right about than. The doctor came in and checked me and I was at a 5, perfect timing for an epidural right. The doctor didn't think so. The baby's heart rate kept on doing the same thing and if it continued they were afraid they were going to have to stop the pit and I would stop dilating and have to start the whole process over in the morning or worse do a c-section. By 6:30 I was dying! I was dialated to a 7 and was given the option to go ahead and get the epidural and they would break my water but know the risk that came along with it. I went for it and am glad I did. Life was great after that and at 10:10 they checked me and I was ready to go! Boy was I ever ready to go too. I kept feeling a lot of pressure and as they were setting up I remember thinking I hope they hurry. One push later we had our amazing little boy! It all happened so fast! He weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz. and was 20 inches long. He has quite a good amount of hair and looks just like his daddy. I don't want to jinx myself but he has been the best baby so far. We have yet to really heard him cry only a few times. He is quite the eater (thank goodness!) and sleeps about 99 percent of the time. Big brother met him the next day and isn't sure what to think. He wouldn't look at him at all unless people were around than he tried to show off a little and would hug him on occasion. He didn't like me holding the baby and if i was he threw a fit and than would lounge on my lap. We had a hard time coming up with a name and about 1 hour before I was discharged we decided on Nash Karson Morgan. I feel so blessed to have two amazing healthy boys. I am so thankful to both our families who have helped out so much, especially with Madden. I don't know how it happened but I am one lucky girl to have three amazing guys in my life!

This is possibly the worst picture of me ever but its the only one I have of the before birth belly! My arms are up like that because I am apparently allergic to the tape and it was itching like crazy!

Me holding Nash for the first time. I didn't get to hold him right away because they were worried I was going to hemorrhage like I did last time. Lucky for me everything turned out fine!

This is my did that just really happen face! It seriously happened so fast!
Both sets of Grandparents were there!

Madden meeting baby brother for the first time. Doesn't he look thrilled!

He would get real close to him but would never look at him!
This is where he spent the majority of his visit!
All geared up and ready to go home!
Aren't I the luckiest girl in the world!

My crazy boy!

It is kind of hard to tell in the picture below but this has become Maddens new "place". If you look real close you can see a little bump in the middle of the curtain. Madden has discovered a new chair and place to play. He will sit behind the curtain for a good half hour playing and laughing!

I love this little boy. He seriously keeps me going all day but I wouldn't want it any other way! He is always laughing and smiling. It is amazing to see how smart he is getting and watching his little imagination work! I know this is almost a month ago but I don't want to forget so here is Maddens 12 month stats!

Weight: 19.12 oz.
Height: 28 3/4 inch. 

He loves to make animals sounds.
He is obsessed with dogs.
He never stops moving or getting into or climbing on things. 
He speaks Japanese, we think! He jibber jabbers all day long.
He no longer has a binky!
He goes to bed at 7 and sleeps til 7.
Still takes two two hour naps a day. 
Says hi, hello, bye, no, yes, mom, dada, bampa, oh toodles, gog (dog), uh oh.
Is obsessed with brushing his teeth.
He has six teeth and counting. I swear a new one pops up daily.
Runs to the fridge when he wants milk.
Will run to his high chair when he is ready to eat.


Nephi had there first Endurocross and it was awesome. We loved it and had so much fun. My sister and her family and my parents came down too to watch which is always a treat! We can never get them to come to Nephi so we were excited! Madden loved it as much as a one year old can! He loves vroom vrooms but he loves to move more! Oh well maybe next year!
