New Coffee Bean Addition

July 12, 2011

Coffee Beans:
     It has been more than a week since I  have posted anything on the site.  Some of you may remember reading my January Brewed post, which had the subtitle “New Bean Roasting!“.
     Then, last Sunday I wrote in my “June Brewed – Coffees Consumed, Games Played” post that, “July is here, and it’s going to be crazy busy…”.

     Well, why is July crazy busy?  Last weekend when I wrote that post, Mrs. Coffee was 9 months pregnant and she had already started having contractions the previous Friday(July 1).  Sunday morning(July 3rd) we went to a church to hear a friend preach the message, and his church was closer to our house than the one we normally go to on Sundays…so we thought we were playing it safe just in case anything happened that morning(contraction wise), we would be closer to home.
     Sunday was pretty non-eventful during the day, as for Mrs. Coffee having contractions.  While she had some contractions late Sunday night, they went away and she didn’t wake up in the middle of the night with any.
     Monday morning, July 4, while I was still passed out, Mrs. Coffee woke up and broke her mid-wife’s suggestion to “take it easy”, and went on a walk around the neighborhood…HOPING that the walk would get some contractions started, but it did NOTHING.
     She drove to Bojangles, and ordered their spicy chicken biscuit…but nothing happened all morning.  For lunch I drove to Chick-Fil-A, not my store but one a little closer to home, and ordered her the spicy chicken salad.  Still, after eating another spicy meal, NOTHING.

     Long story short(er), at about 8:25PM Monday night, Mrs. Coffee told me to get ready to leave for the hospital.  I packed up some of our stuff, and our son’s stuff because he was staying with some friends.  We dropped off our son at our friends’ house a little before 9:00PM.  On the way to the hospital Mrs. Coffee told me and a friend on the phone she wasn’t even sure if the hospital would keep us, or just check her and send us home.
     We arrived at the hospital and got into a “triage” room at about 9:40PM.
     At 10:14PM, our new little guy, Jacob, was born into the world on July 4!

     So for the last week, we have been adjusting to a new baby and new schedule, and trying to get settled at home.  Both Mrs. Coffee and baby Jacob are doing well, and our 2 year old doesn’t seem to mind the new addition that much.
     Also, within the last week Mrs. Coffee and I had our 7 year wedding anniversary!  July isn’t even halfway over, and it’s already had an exciting start.
     We have family that will be visiting us starting later this week, and then throughout the rest of the month.  So with a new baby, a 2 year old, work, spending time with my wife Mrs. Coffee, trying to beat Monster Hunter Tri(yes I’ve been finding some time for it!), and family about to visit…I may not be posting a lot for the rest of July, but I wanted to give you all an update and share the good news with you.
