More pictures

So ready to leave the hospital! Get us out of here!!!

First things first at the Bowcutt house. As soon as we got home from the nap time!!!
It's amazing how fast we became smitten with this little guy. I knew we would love him, but I was worried about sharing my love between him and Parker. I can honestly say that I can't get enough of him! Every facial expression, every sound he makes makes my heart smile. We are all obsessed. Especially Parker.
I looked in the baby's crib to find this, Parker said his baby brother wanted a toy to play with, so he gently placed his bat next to him. It could have been much, much worse.

To top off a very exhausting and emotional week, my big boy started preschool today!! He was so so excited. Especially when we told him Jared and I wouldn't be going with him. He thought he was such a big boy.

I did a lot better than I thought I would. I had my meltdown last night when I realized Parker was starting preschool and my baby was a whole week old. Where does time go?

Baby Tage

Our baby is finally here! Tage Charles Bowcutt made his dramatic entrance last Wednesday, July 30 at 9:40 pm. He was 7 lbs. 6 oz and 21 inches and his feet are freakishly long. He is absolutely perfect and we just hold him and stare at him all day long. I was scheduled to be induced on Thursday the 31st but Tage wanted it to be a surprise so he came the night before. And we're so happy he did!

Here is his "wrinkly old man" picture.

Parker's first reaction to the baby. We didn't have a lot of time before we left to the hospital to tell him that we were going to have the baby. So I think he was a little confused. He just kept staring at us.

It didn't take long though. He loves his baby brother and wants to hold him and look at him all the time. He's so concerned for him and if the baby isn't with us Parker has to know exactly where he is and what he's doing

Parker helping me eat my lunch. The baby gave Parker this Power Ranger costume at the hospital as a "look out big brother cuz I'm about to rock your world" present. I think it did it's trick because Parker is so good with the baby so far.
Thanks everyone for your nice thoughts, phone calls etc. We are all happy, healthy, and trying to catch up on our sleep!
