Our first family of seven photo!
Jason, Brooke, Luke, Darby, Baylie, Paisley and Ivy McCoy
Ivy was born on June 14th, 2011 weighing 7 lbs 10 oz and 19 inches long. She is tied for my biggest baby with Darby (Darby loves that).
Ivy Louise McCoy has a great head of dark hair, and was born at 4:02 p.m. Her middle name is from her grandma McCoy...maybe one day she will be Ivy Lou?
She also might be the most popular baby on the planet. At least in our house.
Here's the siblings meeting her for the first time the next day. They love her and think she is sooo cute.
Nurse Nana was awesome to have and thanks to my friends for watching the rest of the brood so she could be there. Labor was very short but no fun for me. Got to the hospital at 10 a.m. Hooked up to antibiotics around 11, started pit around 11:45...water broken at 12:30...got an epidural (first time didn't work so they had to poke me again)...felt light headed and nauseous the whole time and had to get another bump up of the epidural because wasnt working well, but Ivy delivered quick and easy and I felt much better afterwards. Great recovery probably also due to strange epidural.

Freshly born, here is Ivy squeezing her dad's hand.
We are home and taking turns holding little ivy mccoy. I'm winning.
Yes, little ivy was well worth it, but I'm glad she is finally here.
