met last year while I was pregnant.
Little Bowie was born last week on February 16th at three in the morning. The story is short and sweet; my water broke at home at exactly midnight. Not long after, I was having contractions that were three minutes apart. And Bo was at work, finishing up a big project. I texted him to let him know that this was it and he'd better get home fast! We bundled up Lo in sweatpants and bunny slippers and I told her we were going on a midnight sleepover adventure at her grandparents' house. A quick car ride downtown to the hospital and we were on the fast track to baby town! Bo's sweet cousin, Allie, is a labor and delivery nurse (who I had been texting to confirm if my water had actually broken ... or if I was merely peeing my pants) and she met us there. She was amazing and it was really special to share the experience with her.
Just two hours and four pushes later, we were holding our brand new sweet baby boy. He is beautiful and we can't believe he's really here. I couldn't have asked for an easier or faster (!!) delivery. Especially since I was scheduled to be induced earlier this week. We're back home and life is so good. I am over the moon in love with having a family of four. Lo adores her baby brother and is a huge help to us. Seeing Bo hold little Bowie is pretty much the coolest thing ever. The smell of his hair is intoxicating. I want to (and luckily, get to) snuggle him all day long. We are so very lucky ... so very blessed.
A huge thank you to everyone who has wished us well along the way! I'm preparing a big photo dump that I'll post very soon so you can see what we've been up to with this little guy.
