Surprise! Again...

I have some impatient children. This one wasn't quite as impatient as Reed, when my water broke unexpectedly at 32 weeks, but when she came, she was sure in a rush!
Meet Jade Cheyenne Miller!
She was born July 27th at 7:55 AM, weighing 6lbs 8ozs and was 19 1/2" long. A whole 3 lbs and 3 1/2" more than Reed. A ginormous baby, lol.
In just like Reed fashion, I woke up early Monday morning at 4:10 (Reed was 5:00 AM on a Sunday) with my water breaking. Of course, I was 37 1/2 weeks pregnant, so I could have just peed on myself, lol. 
After deciding this was not the case, I woke Lance up, and we started getting ready to go to the hospital. About 5:00, contractions started around six minutes apart. By the time we got to the hospital, contractions were three minutes apart, and I was dilated to a seven!
The nurses said that if I pushed, she would probably come right out, but don't push! Yep, breech, just like Reed. She was supposed to be a scheduled c section anyways, so that wasn't a big deal. I was just supposed to get to skip those pesky contractions this time. I got the, uh, best of both worlds with both kids.
I had to lay there 20 minutes waiting on lab work to get back before I could get any drugs, geeze Louise! I swear I had a hundred nurses working on me at once.  I was in the express lane, lol. At 7:55, Jade was born!
Reed likes her, so far, haha. He wants to help do everything for her and likes to rub her head and sing to her.
He also likes to high five and give her fist bumps.
She's already flopping back and forth, can raise her head for a few seconds, and only wakes a couple times a night for a bottle. A big difference compared to Reed!

She only cries when she's hungry and I'm being too slow, or when she poops. Not a big fan of the poop.
Stay tuned for more pictures!


  1. Congratulations! and you even got Reed's birthday party in beforehand. Must have been too much excitement ;)

    1. Thanks! I blame that, and the fact I watched Sharknado 3 the night before, lol.

  2. Absolutely beautiful children....and I love your page layout. I don't know why but Henry the sock monkey is my favorite.....God Bless.

    1. Thanks! I'm a big fan of Henry, myself! :)

  3. She is so cute! Glad you are all doing well.

  4. She's a darling. Glad you had a quick delivery. I'm sure Reed will be a wonderful big brother.
