Baby McCoy is Here!

This was Christmas night, the night before my little sister Heidi went into the hospital. Her and Trevor were so ready for their little boy to come. She had quite the pregnancy and was so ready to get him out, especially since she was due on the 23rd of December!

I'm so glad I snapped this picture as they left for the hospital. She was having strong, painful contractions at my parents house the day after Christmas and she thought her water may have broken so they decided to go in.

After they were admitted, got settled in and Heidi got her epidural, we went to the hospital for a visit.

We all loved being able to wish Heidi the best of luck with delivery. I however started to feel crazy sick and ended up with the stomach flu all night long. It was horrible! I was so scared I may have given it to Heidi or Trevor but luckily neither got it. I was so sad because I was unable to see Heidi or her baby for 24 hours after he was born:(

Brett was able to take Steele to visit and look who he ran into! This is ANA our very favorite nurse. She was my delivery nurse and she helped us through everything! Ana really helped Brett a lot! She was so excited to see Steele and Brett after 9 months. She even remembered little details about us like doing InVitro and Brett getting ready to graduate. She is awesome! I wish I could have seen her too.

Once I was all better I finally got to come see McCoy for the first time. As you can imagine I was a big baby and got so sad that Steele has gotten so big so fast. He was just so tiny and precious. There is NOTHING like a bran new baby sent straight from heaven.

Yes I did put Steele in the little plastic bassinet. I know, I know I'm ridiculous. But it was pretty funny and it really shows how much bigger he is.

Another thing that has got me being such a big baby about is McCoy wearing Steele's baby clothes. Like this little monkey get-up. So cute! I don't believe Steele really fit in it too. I just don't.

Steele loves his new cousin but he gets extremely jealous when Mommy holds him. I do it anyway cause he is just going to have to get used to it.

McCoy has the cutest little calic on his head. This is the best picture I could find of it. It is a swirl right smack in the center of his forehead. It's going to be awesome when he gets older.

We are so excited for little McCoy to be here. He is already loved so much. Steele and him will be best of friends. I just know it!

Congrats to Heidi! Whenever I think of Heidi I picture her walking around always carrying a baby doll. And now she is a mommy! So exciting and so fun!

What a cute post. Little McCoy looks like Heidi! I bet it's so fun to see him in Steele's old baby clothes. It is always so fun when Sam wears Jackson's old clothes--it never gets old--it always brings back memories!
