Family of 6

We are home now and enjoying being a family of 6.
my whole pregnancy, labor and delivery, and home coming was a wonderful experience and what a blessing Bowen has been to our family.
I was scheduled to be at the hospital at 6am on January 5th to be induced.
When I got there I was already 4 cm dialated and 80 % effaced.
They got me hooked up to everything and broke my water at 7:30am then recieved my epidural at 8:30am. I took a short nap and the doctor came in at 10am to check me and said it was time to have a baby! I was already 10 cm.

After pushing for 40 minutes, Bowen Henry was born!!

My total time in labor was 3 hours 45 minutes, it was so easy that I slept through most of it!!
People have told me not to tell too many women that!!!

Jason bragged that I did not even mess up my hair and make-up!!

The kids are so excited to have thier brother home! They are asking every 5 minutes if they can hold him. I am so blessed to have these 4 children!!

I am so thankful for everything God has done for our family!

Bowen made it home yesterday just in time for the big championship game!
Roll Tide!!
He has been the best baby. He never cries, and eats and sleeps wonderful!!
I feel great and I am glad to be home with all my precious babies!

I'm so glad you had such a positive expereince!! We both were blessed with our deliveries and look what we ended up with!! So I'm wondering, how did if feel going home with 4 kids in 4 carseats?!?! Pretty amazing, I'm sure :-)

I hope your first couple of weeks are as special and wonderful as ours has been. This is where the real fun begins!!

So beautiful! Praise God! I would tell EVERYONE that labor story! It is one to be proud of! Thank God it was easy for you. He looks like he handled the birthing process fabulous. LOVE your family of 6! What a great picture!

Terri said...

I love all your pictures!

I actually thought the same thing about your hair and makeup!!! You all always look so beautiful!

Congrats to Alabama! We had a sad house over here when the Horns lost!

I'm so so glad for you! Be prepared for the crying though. Around two, three weeks babies tend to "wake up!" But enjoy it while you can. The kids are so so cute. I can't wait to see you all again!
