Introducing the new McYong big sister! #lifeaftertransplant


On Tuesday, April 5 at 7:30am, Addison became a big sister to Charlie Ella Yong McArthur. The delivery was fast and furious and we left the hospital seven hours later to head home. No need to use anything we packed in the Princess’s special overnight bag because we left the house at 5:45am that morning in the care of my dad and then three hours later they brought Addison to the hospital to meet their 9th grandchild.

So far, the Princess is (mostly) loving her new role in the family. She has been very helpful with bath time, diaper changes and she is getting to be an expert at trying to calm down the newborn crankiness. We are still in the height of extreme craziness in the McYong household but we have a busy couple of weeks ahead. We’ll be at the Transplant Trot tomorrow – we’ve been to every single one since they started five years ago so we can’t miss it. Then Addison’s 5th birthday is Tuesday and there is a birthday party next weekend.

Elaine, Aaron, Addison and Charlie
