New Year brings new Joy

Monday, January 31st, 2011

We started the New Year with a day of relaxing and preparing for a scheduled c-section on the 3rd.  Being prepared, by making sure we had everything we need to go to the hospital and eating up to the midnight cutoff the night before.  It is a long day when you can not even have water until after recovery.  Isabel Ava joined us on January 3rd at 1:32pm.  She came out letting us all know she was here.  One nurse even said welcome your 3 month old, joking since she was a good size little girl.  We were in the hospital until Thursday evening and decided to go home.  It was a long drive home, it was rush hour and snowing (roads slick) so the half hour drive turned into 1.5hrs.  The ride seem to be longer for me because every bump felt like a huge pothole.  Isabel did not sleep well the first night home, but it was nice to be in our own home instead of the hospital.  Being home was a bit strange not having some nurse come in every couple of hours to check either myself or Isabel.  It is amazing what you get use to in just a few days.

Tracy stayed in the hospital with Isabel and I while we were there and did not go back to work until the following week.  The 10th we had Isabel’s first doctor appointment she checked out and the doctor was happy with everything.  She weighed 9 lb 13oz and he thought she would easily be back to her birth weight in the two weeks.  When Isabel was two weeks she weighed 10 lb and 14.5oz.

Happy birthday Mom

Saturday, December 15th, 2007

We celebrated my Mother’s birthday today, all the McCoy’s were at our new home in Blacklick to celebrate. We had a chicken salad lunch with several toppings to choose from. The roads were a bit slick and my parents took a detour because Brett notified them of an accident on 270.

Mom’s Birthday

Terri and Peter’s Wedding

Saturday, October 20th, 2007

Rebecca, my Mom, and I headed out to Minnesota early Thursday morning to Terri and Peter’s wedding. We picked up great aunt Toot outside of Chicago and enjoyed her company the remainder of the trip. For Rebecca and I it was our first time to the Mall of America which we visited on Friday. That night we had a shower for Terri and a rehearsal dinner, minus the rehearsal. The next morning Toot, Judy, Rebecca, Janice, Karen and myself went to an orchard on the east side of town and picked up some tasty apples. We headed to Peter’s house to finish up the decorations that Doug, Mary Kay, and Grandma started. With the vehicles packed we took the decorations to the reception hall to decorate, the to the hotel to get ready for the wedding. Rebecca and I took pictures of the wedding which I uploaded here. Its alway great to visit with family. Best Wishes to Peter and Terri !
