Highway 35 Baby Girls

This week, two youth pastors, Caleb Beech and Yours Truly, both who work at churches 7 miles apart, became fathers (for the first time) to two beautiful baby girls - all within twelve hours of each other. They also were only about 7 rooms apart at the hospital. To top it off, a third youth pastor that worked with the two of us, became a father to a baby boy within the same time period! In the pic you can see Caleb and I as we show off our girls.

Daddy's Little Girl

Here are a couple more pics of Ella. The first was only minutes after she was born. The second was this morning. Jana and I are pleased with God's little gift. To quote my friend David C., "He (God) done good!" we are praying she will see God in us and want to love and follow Him!

First Pic

I told you I would post dome pics of Ella as long as it was ok with Jana. I got permission So, for those who really wanted to see picture of the baby, here you go.

And Her Name Is . . .

Ok here is what a lot of you have been waiting for . . . Baby Girl Snyder was born at 1:04 PM on September 1. She weighed 7.0 lbs and was 19 inches long.

Thanks for your continued prayers!

Oh, I almost forgot. She was named after her two grandmothers. . . Ella Lynn.

Pictures soon as long as it is okay with Momma.

It's Time

I am writing this on my phone since the Internet here at the hospital is pathetic. So . . . A lot of new twists have taken place since yesterday.

After much deliberation and many phone calls, the medical team decided that there was no reason to have Jana continue to be in pain for another eight days. Their solution was to take the baby Thursday around 11 am. After the final decision was made, preparations began for this to happen. Jana continued to receive morphine to take the edge off of the pain and we continued to make plans for our new arrival.

This morning they came at 6 am to take more blood. At that time Jana said the pain was a bit better despite not having any medication since 11 PM.

Then, on top of everything, Jana started having contractions! I think God knew what He was doing by getting us to the hospital before this became an emergency cesarean section. Actually, so far the contractions haven't been too strong. Jana thinks they could have started around 5am or before.

We are now just waiting For the nurses to come take Jana to the operating room seeing as all the preparations are complete. Prayerfully within two hours we will get to see our little girl for the first time! And I will post pictures AFTER Jana wakes up and sees the baby. BTW - Because of Jana's factor 5 Leiden, she has to have a general anesthesia which means I can't go in the room. :(
Also, know that we will post the name we picked here later this evening.

So, please continue your prayerful ways and know you are appreciated.
