A few of his favorite things

Stone is growing so much these days. I wanted to list a few of his favorite things...

1. Bubbles- Nonnie gave him a bubble blower for Easter. He especially loves to have us blow bubbles on him when he is in the bathtub. The bubbles stick to him as you can see and he can't get enough of it. We actually have to hide the toy, so he won't continually ask for it.

2. Jumping on the Trampoline- A few weeks ago he actually started jumping. Now he is our little jumping bean. Any time we go outside he wants to get up there and jump. He really loves it when one of us gets up there with him and jumps with him.

3. Baseball- "Hit it, Hit it!" are 2 words that Stone is constantly saying. Pops came to visit us a few weeks ago, and he brought Stone a tee ball set. It was a hit. (No pun intended.) He wants to hit the ball and has actually gotten pretty darn good at it.

Life Continues On.

We are 12 days since Rowans birth. She is already looking bigger than a week ago. We are very excited and looking forward to watching her grow. Stone is always asking about Rowan. He says "baby" in a questioning voice. He likes to get her pacifier and try to give it to her. He want to sit by her and touch her. We tell him to be gentle and he repeats gentle to us and slowly touches her face and head.

Here is a better picture of Rowan a few days ago. She is tiny. She is very precious.

Here is Kimbralie with Rowan. They look good together.

We put this above Rowan's crib. It says it all.

Rowan Claire

Last Wednesday, March 24th, at 11:39 am Rowan Claire made her entrance into the world. It was quite a quick labor, which I was thankful for. She weighed 8 lbs 3 oz and was 19 inches long. This time around, Doug and I were much more relaxed. I was a bit more nervous heading to the hospital for my induction than I was last time, but that quickly went away as I realized there was no turning back.

Nonnie stayed with Stone while we were in the hospital. She brought him up after his nap on Wednesday. He was instantly interested in Rowan. As you can see in the picture, he is always wanting to look at her and love on her. He has his moments of tantrums now that he isn't the only one, but I pray they will pass quickly.
We were in the hospital until Friday and then we headed home to see what life with 2 kids is all about. I would say as of now, 1 week out, we are doing ok. We will see what happens once Doug is back to work next week and things are sort of back to normal. Thankfully I have one more week of help with my mom taking off some days from work, and my dad coming in town to meet his granddaughter. Then the real test will come, when it is just me.
