Dr. McCain- "J. Mac"- Tate's 2 day check up...

We went to see Tate's pediatrician, Dr. McCain, AKA J. Mac at Mayfair Peds. She and I worked at the Children's ER together, and I just love her. When I found out she became a pediatrician, I immediatley decided to use her. She is so good with Tate, and I feel so comfortable taking Tate to her. Her first visit, 2 day check-up, went well. She had already gained back up to her birth weight. She is 50th percentile in height and weight. Everything looked great Praise God!!

Little Miss Priss, Tate, has received lots of visitors since she was born. She received a lot at the hospital, but even more visitors have come to see her at home. Most of the pics are on my other slide-show, but here are some more. Ashley and Sean Cosby came to bring us dinner and visited with Tate last week. I was a bad mommy and didn't get her pic with them, but will get one soon. Our church core group and other friends from church have been so wonderful. They have been coming to visit Tate and bring us dinner on Tues. and Thurs. This has been so awesome, b/c this means I haven't had to cook!! Thanks yall!! We really appreciate you. Tate's boyfriend, Cooper, came to visit yesterday with his mommy Jessa and another friend Cortney. Cortney is pregnant also, and will soon have another friend for Tate to play with. Cortney brought us a awesome dinner! Miranda, Eric, and Allison came this week also to bring dinner and visit!! Today, Katie Harbison visited and brought some yummy food too! We have really been blessed with friends/family checking in on us, and helping out. Love yall!!

Tate McKinlee Iffland ARRIVES!!!- June 11, 2010

My baby girl is finally here! After 9 mos. of praying, wondering and waiting, she is in my arms!! I truly have never loved anyone like I do Tate! She weighed 7lbs and 1 oz, 20 in. She has a head full of dark brown hair like her Daddy! She looks just like him. She has two dimples. One on each side! We sure do love her!!


Here are some pictures of us getting ready to head to St. V's to meet the sweetest babygirl in the world! We didn't know at this time how much our lives would change in such a good way. I went in Thursday night to start the induction process. I received my epidural at around 3am, and after that the process was very speedy!!

I am 40 weeks and one day today. Tate's due date was yesterday, June 3rd. Well, looks like she is going to be stubborn like her mommy, and hang around in her comfortable home in my tummy. Everyone that is due before or a little after me has had their baby. I think Tate knows this and is thinking she wants to surprise everyone and come on her own time. So anyway, I went to the doctor Tues., and Dr. Edwards scheduled to induce me Friday, the 11th, if she doesn't decide to come before then. The 11th is my Big Daddy's b'day, so it would be neat for them to have the same b'days. I had another ultrasound and Tate weighed (without all of her head weight b/c it was so low again), 6 lbs. 14 ozs. Almost 7lbs! She was beautiful on her little pics. I am as of today getting miserable and very tired. I'm ready for her to be here. I came home from work and climbed straight into bed! Hopefully next time I update, I'll be posting pics of her sweet face!
