The Stork Brought Pink

 Sweet Izzy was brought to us by Stork Bishop! Dr. Nancy Bishop at Lakeside was incredible. We are so thankful for her love, support, and ever present sweet nature.

 Right after Izzy was born, she had some special guests in the waiting room including my brother and Sara, my mom and dad, Scott's parents David and Linda. Izzy was glad to meet everyone.

 This door sign was made by some of my sweet Norman girlfriends. It had the whole "bird" theme that matches her nursery at home.

 Izzy wanted to thank everyone that came to the hospital. She prepared cookies with her initials and a little thank you card...oh and a bottle of water since she couldn't figure out how to keep milk cold in the hospital room!

We had a great day on "Izzy's Day!" Happy birthday to you sweet girl.

Today Is The Day...Let Us Rejoice and Be Glad In It

 At week 37 I felt something a little different. Izzy started kicking in a different place than usual. It seemed like a shift had happened. At that weeks doctor's appointment, I mentioned it to Dr. Bishop. After an ultra sound we discovered our little baby was breach. Indeed she hadn't turned at week 39, so we decided a c-section was the safest route.
 Wednesday, August 3rd, the day before Izzy's birthday, I worked almost all day. However, had to treat myself to a mani/pedi and a trip to OKC with my dear friend Becky. The night before Scott and I could hardly sleep. We felt like Christmas Eve and Santa was on his way.
 Thursday, August 4th we woke up bright and early and headed to OKC around 6:30 a.m. On our way we danced and sang to fun songs. Upon arrival, we checked in and were assigned to room 18. I headed directly into a room to be prepped for surgery. The time went by super fast. Our first nurse Kaylee couldn't have been more sweet. Before I knew it we headed to the surgery room to meet our sweet Iz.
 When they went to get Scott after they had me fully prepped, he entered the room and asked "Who paged Dr. McDreamy." He set the stage for everyone to get a giggle, especially me! Around 9:48 a.m. they started the procedure, and at 10:08 a.m. our sweet angel entered the world, all 7 pounds 7 ounces of her.
 I saw her face and said "hi baby," she stopped crying when she heard Scott and my voice. It is remarkable how they truly know who mom and dad are right away. Sandra was Izzy's nursery nurse pictured above. She was terrific.
 This is the first picture of Izabelle. She is too precious! I was thrilled when I finally got to see and hold her.
The first 24 hours were sort of a blur. I was a little out of it from all the meds, not to mention very sleepy. I was so thankful for all our friends and family who kept us in their thoughts and prayers. I loved seeing everyone at the hospital too.
Happy birthday to you IJD! We are so lucky to call you ours. Cheers to the "good life!"

About Me

Dreams really do come true. I have shared many days with the love of my life, Scott. We met in the winter of 2003 and married in the spring of 2008. We welcomed our sweet bundle of joy to the world August 2011. Izabelle has been a true blessing from our Father. We also have a furry pal named Bernie. I love my family and couldn't be more thankful for friends. My hope is that our blog will help share our days with the ones we love.
