Welcome To The Family Mackenzie Joy Robertson...

Before we begin Little Bug's Journey with his new sister, we have to apologize for the delay in posting and the order of the pictures. We have so many memories that we want to share that the order got kinda messed up. But before we begin Little Bug would like to introduce you to someone..........

Hi Everybody, I'd like to introduce you to my new baby sister....Mackenzie Joy!!! I already know that I love her (or so my Daddy and Mama say I do!!!)

Daddy and Mama say I have to tell you all the specifics about Mackenzie's birth or else the women who look at the blog will be wanting more info.....So here goes.......
We all thought that Daddy and Mama were going to the hospital first thing on Monday morning to be induced for the delivery of our new baby, but our new baby had a mind of her own. Mama started feeling "funny" at 2am on Monday morning and told Daddy that she thought they needed to go to the hospital. Daddy didn't really believe Mama so they went back to bed until about 3am when Mama was moaning really bad. The contractions were coming every minute or so and Mama could barely get out of bed. So the mad dash began as they tried to get out the door to the hospital. Mama was frustrated because she couldn't find time between 1 minute contractions to put on her makeup and curl her hair. Daddy was doddling because he still thought there was lots of time to get out the door. At 3:30am Mama's water broke and she was really in lots of pain. She finally got to the car, but Daddy was still not ready to go. Daddy and Mama finally left the house at 3:53am and they sped down the hill to Auburn Regional Medical Center. They arrived at the hospital ER entrance at 4:02 and Daddy put Mama in a wheelchair and got her up to the family birth center on the 3rd floor. They checked Mama into her room at 4:09 and she was dilated to a 4 and Mama was asking for something for the pain. They said that the epidural was coming, but Mama knew it wasn't going to be soon enough. Daddy left to go back down and park the car and Mama kept telling that nurse that she had to push. The nurse kept saying, "No, It's not time to push.....Just breathe!!" "BREATHE", Mama said, "I need to scream because it hurts so bad...." The hospital was definitely not ready for this surprise delivery and so when the doctor walked into the room (who wasn't even Mama's doctor) he actually yelled at her and told her to stop screaming or she was going to hurt herself. He even snapped his fingers in her face.....that was mean!!!!! Daddy walked back in the room as Mama was telling the nurse and doctor that she had to push and they checked and she had dilated from a 4 to a 9 in 10 minutes. 3-4 pushes later the doctor said, "You have a beautiful baby girl!!!" She was born at 4:29am so we were only in the room for 20 minutes. Pretty dramatic story for a little girl, but Daddy and Mama say it was all worth it!!! She was born April 2nd, 2007 and she weighed in at 8 pounds 2 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long with lots of dark hair. So there's the story.....Now here's the pictures.....Once again, sorry they are not in good order, but at least they are here.

Mackenzie Joy trying on Mama's dedication bonnet that was worn 37 years ago.

Today, April 5th, 2007 was a major milestone for me.......I rolled over, unassisted, for the very first time. You would have thought that Daddy and Mama had won the lottery because there was clapping and fan fair like you wouldn't believe!!! Yeah for me!!!!! I'm growing more and more every day. Hey, by the way, did Daddy and Mama ever tell everyone that I also have two teeth now. Yup, that's right, I have chompers and I love to bite things!!!! Ok, now back to Mackenzie Joy.....

Here is Mackenzie getting snuggled with Grandma Robertson on the night we came home from the hospital.

Daddy and Mama and Grandma Nanny and Little Bug leaving the hospital with "Kenzie Joy". Daddy thought it was just hilarious that he found the biggest wheelchair possible for Mama to sit in on the way out. Mama didn't think that was so funny at all!!!!

Here comes Daddy with the car seat for Mackenzie. Hey, I used to sit in that thing......But now I have a bigger car seat that is way more comfortable.

Just home from the hospital and Mama is holding Mackenzie Joy at the computer because Mama wants to take a look at the blog.

Daddy and Mackenzie just after coming home.

Mackenzie Joy wrapped up like a little "Sweet Pea". That's what Mama is calling her!!!

Me and Mama playing the "Bop, Bop, Bop" game!!!!! She says it, then I say it.....You get the drift, right???

Daddy and Mama say that my little sister is going to take a litte time away from me.....Hey, does that mean we won't go flyin' around the house as much????? When can I send her back????

Aaaawwwwhhhhhh...............You mean I can't send her back???????? What???????????

Mackenzie says, "Heeeee Heeeeee........That's right Big Brother, you can't send me back!!!"
Oh man.........I've got a lot of adjusting to do.......I really do have to get used to sharing Daddy and Mama!!! BUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!

Leaving Mama's hospital room #336 to go home with our new baby girl.

Daddy and Mama and Mackenzie with Doctor Bigler. He was the doctor who was supposed to deliver Mackenzie, but he couldn't get there in time.

Daddy's feeding Mama breakfast because she was nursing Mackenzie and just as this picture snapped the pancake with syrup on it fell right in the middle of Mama's hand.....Hee Hee Daddy and Mama are funny folks!!!

The Happy Robertson Family!!!!

What a beautiful family I have.....I love being the big brother.

Mackenzie Joy has already developed a personality....Look, She's actually puckering up for a kiss from Mama!!!

Hee Hee.....I think she just laughed out loud!!!

Mackenzie Joy and Grandpa John...I think this makes 19 grand kids for Grandpa and Grandma Robertson (I'll have to check on that, but I'm pretty sure that's right!!)

Our friends Duke and Shawn came to see the new baby at the hospital and they thought she was just the cat's meow!!! Just look at them....They already adore her!!!

Here's the gang.....Duke and Shawn and the Babcock's...Mark, Racquel, Taylor, Sydnee and another friend!!! Thanks for visiting my baby sister....

Mama introducing Mackenzie Joy to her Mama.....That's my Grandma Nanny!!!!

Mackenzie Joy snuggling with Grandpa Bruce...Mackenzie is Grandpa and Grandma Nanny Milliren's second granddaughter!!!

Daddy and Mama having their first picture taken with my new sister!!!

Daddy's holding Mackenzie Joy's 1st "Birth" day party.....Ding Dongs......Compliments of Auntie Maureen!!!

Daddy catching a little cat nap with Mackenzie......I love it when Daddy takes little naps like that with me. Hey, I hope those naps aren't going to stop......

Mama couldn't wait to get Mackenzie's first bath done so she could put her in her own clothes and put girly things in her hair!!!!

Even though Daddy and Mama never looked at the results from the Amnio, Mama knew in her heart of hearts that this baby was going to be a girl. She knew from the start that I was going to be a boy too......She says that Mama's have something called intuition.....I guess she was right on the money!!!!

Mama was prepared for a little girl with lots of pink clothes and bows!!!! Hey, isn't she cute!!

Actually, she's way more than cute....She's gorgeous!!!!

Mackenzie Joy's first visitor....Auntie Maureen!!!

Daddy and Mama the night before Mackenzie Joy was born. They had dinner out at the same restaurant they ate at the night before I was born, Auguri Italian Restaurant in Auburn.

This picture was taken of Daddy and Mama just 10 minutes after Mackenzie Joy was born!!

Mama and Mackenzie having a little bonding time!!!

Daddy's having his first little talk with my new baby sister. I remember my first talk from Daddy.....He told me all about our family and all about how much he loved me....I'm sure he's telling "Kenzie" the very same things.

Mama and Mackenzie having their first nap together.....Mama has a picture of me and her just like this!!!!!

Well, there you have it.....My new little sister, Mackenzie Joy Robertson in all her glory. More info and pictures to come, but for now, I think we all need a little rest!!!!

Lovebug Hugs From,
Little Bug, Mackenzie Joy and Daddy and Mama!!!!

Heather said...

Welcome Mackenzie! Our whole family is so excited, especially cousin Lauren, whose middle name is McKenzie. :):):) Wow is she happy about your name! And I must say, your middle name does not surprise me. Although Joy is not your mommy's name, to me it is. You might as well have been named for her because for me, she has always been a huge source of JOY.

Randy, Way to go!!!! You're on your way to a full quiver. :)

Lori, We'll have to chat soon. Lori, never pay attention to those Doctors and nurses, sometimes, Mommy just KNOWS WHAT'S GOING ON!!! I had a similar situation myself. :) I'm glad all is well and you're home resting. ;)

Connor, you're going to LOVE that little sister of yours. If nothing else, you can always pull on her ears, toes and fingers. She'll always be a source of fun. :)

Love you all and I'm so glad you're all home together.

What a gorgeous family! My Labor was about the same as far as the quick production from a 4 to a 10! Doctor barely made it each time, you'd think they's learn! And the nurses never could believe that I was ready to push ("it is too soon, I just checked you") So am I right to understand that you did it without an epidural? You now have bragging rights! And she is just beautiful. What a great name, I share her middle name, what an honor! You are going to love having "kids". And you know as well as anyone, what a blessing Randy has just stepped into, that father daughter relationship is just amazing for both her and him! Congratulations, I love you guys!


Jo Ann Collins said...

Finally!! We have been waiting for this news. Thanks for the details, we women have to know all the facts. Randy, next time you need to listen to your wife when she says "it's time!" She does know what she's talking about. Especially when she's already had one.
What a beautiful baby and I love the name. Yeah Connor for another milestone (turning over alone) You are getting to be such a big boy and now big brother. Looks like MacKenzie has started out teasing her big brother already, pulling his ear:)
You did good Lori! & Randy looks every bit the proud Daddy. Love to all 4. Jo Ann

Congratulations on your new baby! You dont know me, but I've been reading your blog regularly since last summer I think. My friend met you at Children's, her son was having the same surgery at Conner and also has downs. I love reading your blog and feel like I know you...maybe I'll run into you on the street someday and say hi. Congrats again, your daughter is beautiful. Great birth story too!
