Our family welcomed our newest addition this past week – baby Jeremy Ly was born at Oviedo Medical Center at 7lbs 11 ounces, happy and healthy. I’m so glad I finally have the chance to sit down and do this post – it will be a quick one though! We just want to say thank you to the entire Oviedo Medical Center staff especially Dr. James who helped our family deliver Jeremy into this world.

“Food is symbolic of love when words are inadequate”

Oviedo Medical Center offers a complimentary “Celebration” dinner that is actually quite good – they deliver with blue tablecloth, entrees including beef tenderloin and mushroom risotto, and desserts.

Also, coincidentally – lucky for us 🙂 – Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen was running a special promotion last week where they would visit local hospitals or birthing centers to send new families home with a welcome bundle that included their signature honey butter croissants – which my wife is a huge fan of!!

Pretty hilarious….

During the first days with a newborn, new parents are too busy to cook or even eat. In fact, 80% of new moms report forgetting a meal. To ease the stress of the first night with a newborn and guarantee parents a warm, homemade dinner, Cheddar’s surprised families with gifts of croissants, ready-made meals and baby essentials on their way home.

The Welcome Home Bundle contained a dozen signature Honey Butter Croissants, Homemade Chicken Pot Pies, Broccoli Cheese Casserole, Hot Fudge Cake and croissant-inspired baby items, including an infant support pillow, onesie and blanket.

A Special thank you to Cheddar’s Sanford location Managing Partner Sean Woods who came to us in Oviedo to deliver the croissants and bundle.

We shared the croissants with the birthing ward staff who were very happy to enjoy them with us.

Such a special time and I can’t wait for many food memories to come with our new baby boy!!!
