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
Our family
Proud mom and dad
Proud big brother
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!

Yay yay yay! He is absolutely gorgeous! And you, by the way, are not supposed to look so incredibly gorgeous before/during/after/yada yada having a baby. Silly you! You make it look easy! I do hope that everything went well this time....a whole lot better than last time at least. I am so happy for you!

And that is just so Parker showing up all dressed up ready to play with his baby brother. Too cute. Love you!!! Congrats!!!

Congrats, Jill! I've been wondering if you'd had that baby yet. Only you could look so great immediately after having a baby! What a precious little guy you have. Love, Ali Ellefsen

Congrats Jill!! I bet you're so happy he's finally here! Stubborn little thing...had to arrive on his terms. There must be a little nordfelt in him somewhere. He's so cute and I love the power rangers costume. I hope you're feeling well.

I keep forgetting to check your blog since it's private (I don't get notified when you update). Waa.
It was great to meet baby Tage at the reunion. You looked gorgeous as I knew you would. I'm so glad you didn't have to wear the moo-moo we had picked out for your recovering body!
Will you be going to any of the alumni games?? Hope to see you there!
