Welcome to the World Makenzie JoAnn!

On Friday, April 11th, 2008, at 8:00am on the nose, Makenzie JoAnn Gorenflo finally made her entrance into this world. It was by far the most amazing thing I've ever experience and I'm so grateful to my sister and brother-in-law for allowing me to be with them during her delivery. I got the "this MIGHT be it" call at 10:00pm. I got the "This IS it!" call at 11:50. I was on the road by midnight. I arrived at the hospital at 3:00am and got to be with Andrea through the night. She was fully ready by 4:10am, but had to wait because the nurse said the bad storms mess with the barimetric pressure and had caused a flood of births. Her dr's were at another hospital delivering. So, water was broken at 7:40 and 20 min. later, she was here. Makenzie weighs 6lb 15oz and is 19.5 inches long. She is absolutely breathtaking. (Maybe I'm biased, but I don't think so.) She has a head full of dark brown hair just like her Momma did. Andrea is doing great and will come home Sunday morning. Enjoy the pics!

I know, I know, I know! I'm sorry! I actually started working on this post last week and then my internet was down over the weekend. Just got off the phone with tech support and discovered all I needed to do was shut down and reboot the computer. AURRRGH!! So, here we go!

Back on March 15th, we traveled to Michigan for Miss Emmy Rae's 7th birthday! She is quite the little diva. She loves Hannah Montana and is sporting a Hannah Montana original in these pics. She also got a Hannah Montant wig from Aunt Kelley. She saw this the day after Christmas as we were shopping and has remained faithful in her desire to have this from me for her birthday. Pretty funny. Looks like her daddy enjoyed the wig as much as her. Oh Baby! What a looker! Emmy is growing up and is quite the lovely young lady. She sang us all a song that was so beautiful. I taped it and will try to attach it to the bottom of the post, but in case it doesn't work, trust me it was precious. I was successful at attaching her cousin, Zoe, singing "Tomorrow" from Annie. It is so cute!

The last week of March was spring break! Sue and I took off for sunny shores! We went to Navarre Beach, Florida, which is known as Florida's best kept secret. That is the absolute truth. It was absolutely glorious! We had a wonderful, quiet, relaxing week on a nearly empty beach. Just the way I like it! The giant yellow house, is not where we stayed, but where we would like to stay. It's a party pad to be sure. There were some fellow buckeyes staying there. Not sure if they attended Ohio State but they saw my Ohio State shirt one morning as we were walking and gave me a shout out! It was pretty funny. I felt so cool. It only cost a measly $10,000 to rent for a week. Anyone interested? It'll house about 20 people, so start saving your pennies! Our little one bedroom townhouse was a little more modest and only cost us $600 for the week. What a steal!

My next post will hopefully be soon and it will be introducing the newest member of our family, Baby Girl Gorenflo as I call her. Andrea's due Wed. and we're all more than ready to meet this little one. Please say a prayer for Andrea as she gets ready to deliver. Well, I've tried unsuccessfully, twice I might add, to upload Zeke and Emmy's videos, but it's not working. So, enjoy little Zoe! She is quite the little entertainer.
