Baby Chase is Born

Some reason the pictures came in backwards. I am finally posting pictures of after Chase was born. 
So all day Tuesday November 18 I was having contractions nothing consistent and by 10pm they were going away so luckly I got some sleep that night. I woke up at 4 am and the contractions were back every 5 minutes, but they didn't seem to progress much and again by 7:30 am they were coming every 10 to 15 minutes. I tried to get Peter to go on a walk with me but Morgan was still sleeping. We did get everything ready, because I was having contractions so often. I was frustrated so I layed down to take a nap. That didn't work because then the real contractions started. I had Peter messaging my back during contractions and Morgan playing with my hair.
We got to the Birthing Suite at 11:30 am and my mom came to pick Morgan up shortly after we got there. My contractions were hard, but only coming every 7 minutes. 
We had a nice, intimate birth with just Peter and my midwife. It was really calm. We laughed lots and we even ate chips and salsa while I sat in the bath tube. (Not like I would have pictured it to be). 
Don't worry it wasn't all easy and fun. I spent about 2 hours pushing out my big 8 pound 15 ounce boy. I guess he pooped a lot when he came out so he would have been 9 pounds. But because of my wonderful husbands couching I didn't tear at all. 
At 5:49 pm Chase Randall Hill was born. He is so beautiful even with all the vernix on him. What amazing things our bodies can do. I look at him and can't believe he was inside me. Heavenly Father loves us so much that he sends such sweet spirits to us here on earth.

Peter Kayaking

Morgan and I drove with Peter and Mike to the Kananaskis River to watch them kayak. This is more of a play river so they would do the same wave a few times so we got to watch them a lot. Morgan and I sat down by the river on some rocks and Morgan put her feet in the very cold water. Every time Peter paddled away from us she would try to jump into the water. This girl has no fear. She also kept saying, "Morgan Kayak." Just what Peter wants is her to kayak.

Trying out the kayak.

Caitlin's Shower

When we were in Canada got to go to Caitlin's baby shower. She was only due 3 weeks before me. She had her baby 2 weeks early and I still have 3 weeks to go. Maybe I'll be lucky enough to go early, not counting on it.  

Morgan is trying to steal the presents because she knows her mom is having a boy too...
Morgan and her Aunt Jessica. She only went to her when I said that she was married to Uncle Mike. She sure loves her uncles.

Tie Lake

I am finally posting some pictures from our trip to Canada. Our first stop was Tie Lake in BC. It was so nice there. It was fairly warm but the water was so cold. The only thing we could get in there was our feet and not even for very long. There were some crazy people out on the wake board, surfing, and tubing behind the boat. It is easy to tell that we were in Texas all summer with the warm ocean water. We weren't use to the Canadian Cold. 
Morgan did have a blast. Every morning when she would wake up she would say, "Outside to Play". She loved the trampoline, the slide, playing in the dirt, seeing lots of different animals and not being in the car. Since we had driven 37 hours in about a weeks time. Not the funnest for a little girl or a pregnant woman. Poor Peter.

This sign was posted by the river where the salmon were sponning (I think that is what they call it). I, of course, was freaked out seeing the sign. I wanted to stay right by the car in case a bear decided it was hungery, but Peter wanted to get a picture of Morgan and I with the fish in view, on the opposite side of the river as our car. We all survived. This was the first time I have seen this and it is really cool.

The next few pictures are of Morgan playing outside. She loved every minute of it. As you can see she is always smiling.

Some how we got this picture twice.

Morgan and Parks

Morgan and Parks hanging out.

Morgan in the Jumper. She say that Parks was having so much fun and she wanted a turn. She didn't know how it worked. She looked like she was tap dancing more than jumping.

USS Lexington

Morgan and I went to the USS Lexington to tour the ship. We were leaving Texas soon and I figured we needed to see some of the sites. Morgan was only interested in the air planes and running away from me. So I spent a lot of the time chasing her. 

Texas Fun

Morgan doing her Ballerina moves. 
I say "do your ballerina" and she lifts her leg up. I'm starting her young. She also does pointe and flex with her feet. 

Morgan loves to pose for pictures. I didn't tell her to do this, she just ran away from me and posed. What a goof ball.
When ever it rained Morgan always wanted to go run in the rain. It was nice and warm so she didn't mind getting wet.

She usually runs back and forth from Peter to me, but Peter didn't come out with us so she didn't really know what to do.

Morgan learned how to climb out of her crib and now she doesn't sleep very good. She wakes up in the middle of the night and 2 seconds later she is running into me.
