Pumpkin Carving

Last night we had our families over for some dinner and pumpkin carving. It was so much fun to get everyone together for some yummy food and fun!

Lucy's cord FINALLY fell off last week so we were able to give her her very first bath! Yay! She actually didn't mind it and seemed to almost enjoy it.

We just can't get enough of this sweet little girl!

The Costanza Look

Our sweet little Lucy is getting bigger each day. I can't believe she's already over 3 weeks old! She has started to lose her hair but right now it's just falling out on the top of her head so she's got this nice little George Costanza thing going on.

last week...


Oh well, that's what bows are for, right?

LucyAnn is Finally Here!

LucyAnn Nicole McElprang
September 28th
11:29 PM
6 lbs 10 oz
21 1/2" long

Cory and I before she arrived

During the labor I came down with a fever and she seemed to get a little stuck, so she was under some stress. When she finally got here, I only got to hold her for just a minute before they took her off to the NICU to check her and make sure everything was ok.

Cory got to go with her down to the NICU.

They were concerned she might have an infection so they decided to put her on some antibiotics and oxygen in the NICU. So, we didn't get to have her in our hospital room at all and I didn't get to see her until the morning after she was born. Cory was FINALLY able to hold her the afternoon after she was born. 

Our first family picture (excuse my grossness!)

We came home on Thursday night and were lucky to bring our little Lucy home on Friday afternoon. We were SO happy to get her home and to be able to hold her without all her tubes and IVs.

Pappy, Nana Sue, Kenna, Kai, and auntie Cami were all so excited to have Lucy home too

Cory's dad came down from Pinetop so he could meet his new grandbaby.

We are ecstatic to have our little Lucy home and to be able to enjoy her sweet spirit. Every day she does something new and fun and cute and we just can't get enough of her. Even though she looks like a McElprang, I'm pretty sure she's got my personality...hence the inappropriate hand gesture. I'm sure that we will have many fun and eventful experiences with this little one and I just can't wait to see what's in store for our little family. Welcome home baby Lucy!
