Welcome Baby Spencer

So live has changed around here, and it's definitely for the better. 

On the night of July 13th Tyler and I settled down for bed.  I didn't sleep much because I was having mild contractions.  They got worse over the next few hours and soon enough I woke Tyler up.  I didn't know if this was the real deal or if I'd be able to go to my baby shower the next day down in Bountiful.  We decided to make a trip to the hospital just to be sure.  After checking in and having them monitor me for about an hour they told us we were there to stay.  We were having our baby!

Well the day went on and I progressed.  The epidural was awesome and I didn't need any pitocin to keep things going, it was just a waiting game...  The day was pretty surreal, knowing that that day would be the one we welcome our little man.  I loved watching the sun rise, and all the rain out the windows and then watch the day turn sunny, all the time just waiting.  Tyler and I talked and passed the time with my friend Jalene who came to do a birth story photo shoot for us.

Around 4:40 I started pushing and the doctor came in.  My doctor was off duty so we had another doctor there for my delivery, which ended up working out just fine, I liked her a lot too.  Little man took awhile to come because of his large head, thanks Tyler!  But finally, at 6:07 p.m. on July 14, 2012 our little Spencer Tyler Coy was born.  Weighing in at 8 pounds, 9 ounces and 20.5 inches long.  He was a big little dude for being a week early!

We soaked in those first moments with him and have loved every second since.  Being parents is definitely overwhelming at times and we feel under qualified to raise this little handsome guy, but he is patient with us and helping us learn along the way.  We sure love him and enjoy all the time we have with him.

Happy Easter!

 Happy Easter to all!  We spent the afternoon at my Grandparents, eating an awesome Easter feast and enjoying an egg hunt. We seemed to spend a lot of time with this little man, Jacob.
 We always love hanging out with Dax, he's such a fun kid.
 It's too bad he fell off the lawn swing and got two fat lips!  Here he is saying "Happy Easter!" Poor guy

It was great to see the whole family.  It seems like it's been too long, since the last time we saw everyone was Christmas.  We missed Mom and Dad and wish you could have been there though!

Baby Coy

It's been quite awhile since I've posted, and a lot has changed around here.  Tyler is still in school, finishing up his masters in Civil Engineering.  He should complete his masters project in December and then it's on to look for work.  I'm still working and enjoying that.

In December we were thrilled to find out that a little one would be joining our family.  Since then our world has revolved around getting ready for baby to come in July.

We found an old rocking chair at D.I. and with Tyler's upholstery skills we revived it!  He is very talented I must say.  We still have to tighten up the chair and paint it but the cushions were definitely the hardest part.  

When my mom was in town for Christmas we spent several hours at D.I. picking out books for babe.  I think we got about 150 books and since have gotten several more.  This baby's already got an awesome library.  We had fun cleaning and sorting through all the books.

Once we found out baby was a boy we went shopping as soon as we could and started his wardrobe.

I've also made a little onesie with an elephant on it and have a few more I want to make.  We've had fun picking out little man's carseat, pack 'n play, crib, bedding, and loading up on diapers.

We can't wait to meet little man in a few months but we're so glad he's still growing and doing so well.  He is a strong little guy who likes to kick at night and he likes when Mom eats and when Dad talks to him.  We feel like he already has a little personality and we love him so much!

 Here's baby so far at 23 weeks.  (Don't mind my stellar outfit)
