Chillin at Home

This is a little video of Spencer while we were still at the hospital

Spencer has been great at sleeping, eating and just being a happy baby. He only wakes us up if he has pooped or needs some food. Other than that, even if he's awake he just sits there looking around in silence. He only woke up twice last night and we got over seven hours of sleep, so we're feeling great!


He often has his feet together just like this. His long feet look just as long as his lower leg in this pic


Spencer is always happy hanging out with Dad.


Amy and Grandma McCoy gave him his first bath. He didn't like the bath but liked being clean after.


We got him all dressed and ready for the day in this little newborn outfit. It was huge on him, but it was fun. We had to put these shoes on him for a picture even though they were way too big.


He's so tiny!


Here is a vid at home

Needless to say, he is also really good at going to the bathroom a lot and therefore our amount of laundry has increased dramatically.

The Story of Spencer Jackson McCoy. . . so far

I was going to tease and do a few posts that had nothing to do with our new baby boy, Spencer, but I know nobody would appreciate that.

Lets get real, I've always known that blogs only even exist so that people can see pictures of your kids. That's the only reason Amy and I ever look at anyone else's blogs. And frankly, that's the only reason our blog exists at all. We were always bad at "blogging" because we never had much worth blogging about until now. So there may be a lot of pictures of our son, but I remind you, that's the only reason this blog exists, so DEAL WITH IT!

Here is a little timeline of pictures of what has been going on the past few days.

Amy and I have just been getting ready and waiting for our little guy to arrive. We had everything ready.

The entire process went so well and quick and we were so happy with everything. Amy has been virtually pain free and we were well taken care of. He came out strong and perfect.


He was born on Friday July 15 at 1:52PM and weighed 6lbs 11oz and was 19.5 inches long



Mom and baby! Amy looked great the whole time

Getting used to being out in the world.

Me and my son!








Just hanging out together. He's a good baby


Spencer got to meet Grandma and Grandpa McCoy




He got a pacifier and then slept like a log!

He loves having his hands by his face. If we have him wrapped up tight, he wiggles and squirms as hard as he can till he frees them up. Then he goes right to sleep.


We got him into his first outfit today before we left the hospital

We got him all ready to go home. He slept the whole way.


We were home within 24 hours. This is him at home asleep in his little bed thing.. you know what i mean
This is our family picture!

Amy has just been glowing. She will be the absolute best mom in the world because she is the best person in the whole world. She was amazing and we are having so much fun with our cute little boy. We love him so much which is kind of weird, but not at all at the same time. We are proud parents and are overwhelmed with gratitude for the trust our Father in heaven has put in us to raise this little person.

Its been a while

Well its been a while since we have updated anything, so here are a few important things that we haven't posted.


I think it is pretty important for people to see that I had a nice mustache going on for a little while. (this pic is in its earlier stages, it only got thicker and better from there)

Amy is still pregnant (only about 2 more weeks left!)



This one above is 36 weeks. The one further above that, I have no idea but it was before we moved.

I also graduated from BYU which is pretty cool, but only to go on to MORE schooling.
We are now living up in WASHINGTON (Yakima) where I will start medical school August 1st!



I took this picture because up toward the right is a Y from LaVell Edwards Stadium, which is the thing I will miss most about BYU. and looking back I should have taken way more pictures there
