We are so happy and blessed to have Baby Brea in our lives. She is such an angel and we love every thing that she does. Here are the pictures for those who requested them.
We thought we would show how nice Lindsey Pimentel is to everyone in our family. Lindsey sent Brea this cute cookie bouquet. It was such a fun gift, and everyone here thought that it was cool. Thanks again Lindsey.
Here is a cute picture of Brea. She sleeps with her mouth open just like her Daddy!
We tried a few photo editing things. it is pretty fun to play around with photos. on picnik.com I was using the free software to make Halloween effects. You should all try it.

Everyone keeps asking me to post details of how the delivery went and about Brea, so here it is. We went to the hospital at 8:00 on Friday morning. I was contracting every 2-4 minutes. The doctor came in at about 9:00 and did an ultrasound. He told us that there wasn't enough amniotic fluid to flip her and that he didn't want to wait any longer to deliver her. They scheduled a c-section for 45 minutes later. The nurses got me all prepared and they rolled me down to surgery. At 11:30 Brea Morphy was born, weighing 6 lbs 6 oz and 20.5 inches long. We were not expecting to have a baby on Friday when we went in, but we are sure glad that we did!

So we went into the hospital on Friday morning to try a version. After Dr. Griffith did the ultrasound he said Brea was still breech and there wasn't enough amniotic fluid to try and flip her, he also said that she would probably not flip herself. He was nervous because if there is not enough fluid, it could cause damage to her kidneys. The doctor called down to surgery and wanted to do a c-section in an hour.

So we went to the doctor yesterday and everything is great except Brea is still breech. Doctor Griffith is having me come in on Friday morning to see if he can flip her over. There are so many different things things that can happen when he is doing the version. My water could break, the placenta could tear, it could put too much stress on the baby, it could put stress on me and cause me to go into labor, the cord could get wrapped around her neck or pinched somewhere, she won't flip over, or she will flip over. I could possibly have to have a c-section on Friday if one of these things happen. If he gets her to turn over he might try to induce me right then so that she doesn't have the chance to flip back to the breech position. (But he only can induce me if I'm favorable). If he can't get her to flip over then we have a c-section set up for the 21st (Pete's, Lola's, and Adam's b-day). Crazy girl is comfortable and stubborn...she doesn't want to move! We just want her to be healthy and get here safely (whichever way that might be).

A couple of days ago Lesha had a volleyball game in Springville. My parents hate to leave the dog in her cage all day long so they asked if I would watch the dog.
