Meet Baby Bowen!

Bowen Roosevelt Smith
6.9lbs 19.5 inches

He's here!
We went in on Thursday morning to be induced. The Docs wanted him out sooner than later because his little abdomen was measuring small...which just meant he was getting hungry. Being induced was a different experience than I thought it would be like. My water broke with Bridger so it was all fast. It wasn't bad being induced, and even though it didn't feel like it took forever. Chad and I just hung out...Chad ran some ties to the post office for me, rented a Red Box, He got some studying in, I read and bought some fabric was a nice and relaxing day in the hospital just waiting for action.
Then at 12:15 am the action came and he was born!
He was wide eyed, alert, quite, and so precious!
My Mom(i mean Angel-in-disguise) had Bridger the whole time we were in the hospital. She brought him over on Friday and he wasn't so interested in me or the baby, but he's warmed up to him since. He always asks were he is and what he's doing. He's adjusting to the big change like I imagined he would...being naughty and emotional. Poor guy, he's so use to being the top dog around here. Hopefully he'll snap out of it soon.
So far, Bowen has been a very good baby. I love having a newborn in the house, it's such a peaceful and good feeling!
Thanks to everyone for your help with Bridger, meals, gifts, and prayers! We're so happy he's here!

Only Child...not for long

I love this picture!
This past few months have flown by and in just a few days our threesome will become the Fab Four! We've been trying to prepare Bridger for the big change, but I know he'll just have to deal with it when it comes.
Chad has been busy as usual with school and I have been in major nesting mode! Yesterday I detailed my car, scrubbed and shampooed the floor mats, made some freezer meals, and cleaned the pantry and fridge, and made a bumper for the Baby's crib...then I proceeded to make a "to do" list for every day leading up to the 22nd (when I'm being induced). I LOVE this phase of pregnancy, I feel so darn productive!
I've been such a slacker with my updates, so I thought I'd just post a photo schmorgasborg of everything we've been up to lately....

Grandma Smith gave Bridger a Buzz and Woody Kite for Easter and we finally took it out yesterday...he loves it!

Our Friends Barb and John came to town over Easter! Ty and Bridger had a good ole time, and of course Barb and I made time for Cold Stone ice cream...more than my fat cells needed but oh so necesary! It was so fun to get to spend time with them and we wish they lived closer!!!!!

Easter weekend was Fridged!!! But we bundled up the kids anyway for a neighborhood egg hunt.
