I need some serious "treasure" therapy....

Wow, all I can say, is that this week SUCKED! So, guess what I'm going to do to feel better; yep, you guessed it, I'm driving 2 hours bright and early in the morning to go to the following estate sale:
and I can't wait! It's a house chock full of stuff from as far back as the 30's and 40's and I hope there's some left since it started today and I had to work. I'm just so glad that when I DO have a rough week at work or anywhere else, that I can always look forward to treasure hunting to relieve a lot of stress! So, I'm headed out for some treasures and some good times tomorrow morning. I'm leaving here about 6:15 a.m. and should arrive there by 8:15 or so to get in line. Wish me luck and I'll share some pictures soon.

It's time to take her home...

Well, mommy and daddy have gotten a little bit of sleep, sweet baby Macy has started to eat a little, poop a little and sleep a little so it's time to take this miracle baby home and her daddy picked out her outfit (how sweet is that...)and got her dressed while her mommy got herself a shower and her great Aunt M. took more pictures. He's so good with her and I'm so proud of you J. and I know you will be such a good daddy to that precious baby girl. Look how hard he's concentrating on getting her just right...
Her sweet mommy is out of the shower now and they're quickly getting ready to go, so, you'll see they now have two sets of hands getting her all put together after they had to take her and do her final blood tests. Sorry 'bout that sweet baby girl...
Uh oh, seems like she might be a little hungry or a little unhappy about something. It's okay darlin', Daddy's going to pick you up and make it all okay.
See, daddy picked out "Adorable" and that sums it up just right, doesn't it?
If you read the previous blog about her coming into the world, you also read the fact that my mom, her great grandmother, was in this same hospital on the 5th floor and hadn't gotten to see her yet. So, I got the nurses okay, and wheeled her down to see her as they waited out front of the hospital for her daddy to bring the truck around and load them all up. This meant alot to her great granny to get to see her before she headed home. My mom wound up staying another 4 days after this before she got to go home on the 11th.
Her great granny was bragging about her already to the nurse that was with them....
Okay, daddy's here with the truck, so we have to load up mom, load up all the stuff, get the car seat all checked out for safety, and load up the most precious cargo of all, MKF!
What you don't see in the last shot below is that her daddy had just "gotten one more kiss" before he had to go get in the driver's seat and drive her home, which is an hour away, and he knew he couldn't make it without one more kiss for the road. I love that...did I tell you how proud of them I am..
Sleep tight sweet Macy Kathryn and know how much your entire family loves you and is so excited you're here! Enjoy your first road trip baby!

She's Finally Here and She's a Miracle Baby!

These are the precious tiny feet of our new family member, a true gift from God and miracle baby - her name is Macy Kathryn and she was born August 5, 2009 at 7:38 p.m., she weighs 7.01 lbs and is 19 inches long and her doctor told us she truly is a miracle baby. She had a very trying time coming into this world but thanks to her mama taking such good care of her for nine months and a great doctor bringing her into the world for us, she's doing fantastic and so is her mama, who is one of my "baby girls",
also my precious niece.
And these are her precious tiny toes... I love baby feet and I especially love this baby's feet...aren't they adorable...keep reading and you'll see the rest of her. We love her so much already!
This is her mama at around 12:15 p.m. - She got to the hospital (for the second time but that's another story...)she was in a lot of pain, her contractions were about 4 minutes apart and she was four cinemeters. I felt so bad for her as she was in so much was hard to see her that way and her sweet hubby was keeping a great eye on her and
helping her all the way. This is Macy's daddy, watching the contractions and trying to help keep his sweet wife focused and breathing through the pain, yep, you guessed it, it wasn't long before she opted for the epidural (hoped I spelled that one right...)
They're watching it together and making sure her vital signs look good and that all is okay. Now, what you don't know is, that at this point, I had to leave the hospital (where I've been for days with my poor mom who is so very sick up on the fifth floor...)to go to work and do a live webcast and said a big prayer that sweet Macy could wait until her Aunt M. got back to join us.
Okay, A & J, see if you can keep an eye on those monitors until Macy's Aunt M. can get back from work to come into this world, I'll cry if I don't make it (oh, don't worry...I made it back but keep reading...) Well, I went to work, did a live webcast event, hauled equipment across the street to set it up and break it down, waited for a torential downpour to stop, drove back to the hospital, checked on my mom, and we still had a little while to wait. But, not long, her mama moved right along after the epidural and a little petosin (spelling?) and next thing you know, her nurse said we'd have a baby before 8:00 p.m. (and this was about 6:45 or so...); and they were right! She came into this world at 7:38 so it really wasn't long. She had a struggle with her cord around her neck but with lots of prayers and a great doctor, she made it just fine. Below, is Macy & her daddy, hanging out in the nursery together making sure she's okay before they take her bake to Labor Room #2 at Capitol Regional Medical Center...Look, she's already got her daddy wrapped around her finger. Isn't that just too adorable for words. He's so crazy about her and it's adorable to see as he was so nervous at first when he found out, by a little bit of a surprise that he was going to be a daddy. He's going to be awesome...he already is....
He was ticklin' her little tummy while the two of them listened to all of the other babies in the nursery was so cute. We all stood behind the glass and watched the two of them become a pair...
Here she is, close up, in the nursery. Isn't she beautiful? You'd never know what a tough time she had. Her skin is beautiful, her toes are adorable, I love her little arms and legs. Can you tell how much we love her already?
Hey bright eyes? Who you lookin' at? Is that your daddy standing over there or do you see your sweet mommy laying over there trying to feel
her legs again?
This is where her granddaddy was holding her with her sweet little hat on...
I promise to post more later but I'm so tired right now that her "Great" Aunt M. can hardly keep her eyes open but my other sweet niece was wanting to see pictures so I caved and came home and posted on my blog. I love this precious baby girl and feel so blessed to have another great
niece to love and spoil!
This precious picture below of her in pink today, August 6th, was taken when I went back to the hospital to see how she was doing, check on her mom and spend the morning with her great grandmother, my mom, who is still sick and in the hospital, too.
Welcome, sweet baby Macy Kathryn! I can't wait to be a part of your life and hope your mama and daddy let me spoil you to the best of my ability. Welcome precious baby girl!
