Big Girl Bed and a Razorback Fan!

Here are a couple of pictures of Melanie and her big girl bed. Andy's mom came down for a few days after we had Drew. She offered to us a bunk bed set. It's a twin/full combination, but unlike the one the girls have, it comes apart (top from bottom). The one that Anne and Naomi has does not. So when we get the old master room cleaned out the bunk beds that don't come apart will go in Anne's "new" room. Naomi will use the full size part of the bunk beds from Andy's mom, and Melanie is currently using the twin size part. Thankfully since it's the top part the railing comes really high above the mattress so we don't have to worry about her falling off. She's been doing really well sleeping in it, but every once in a while points to the crib.

Of course I couldn't resist posting a pic of our newest Razorback fan. :) I took this when he was about 2 1/2 weeks old, I think. He'll be one month old this Sunday!

Pink vs. Blue

Here are the comparison shots I mentioned at the end of my last post. They look very similar to me. Of course Melanie is in the pink flowered blanket and Drew is in blue. :) It's almost hard to believe that Drew is almost 1 month old!

Introducing Andrew Ethan Boyd!!!

We finally have a boy!!!! Andrew Ethan Boyd was born at 8:35am on June 26, 2009. He weighed 10lbs. 2oz. and was 20 inches long. He came by way of c-section, and the doctor commented that he almost didn't make the incision long enough to get his head through. :) Then when he felt how heavy he was he exclaimed that he thought Andrew was a 10 pounder. Then my anesthesiologist, not to be outdone, exclaimed, "10-1!" It was quite funny because then the rest of the OR staff started chiming in their thoughts on his weight. As much as I was not looking forward to the procedure I was glad to be awake through it all. I wouldn't have wanted to miss a moment!!!

Andrew is one week old now, and just as sweet as ever. He has already worked himself into a wonderful routine. He has already spoiled me, too. He has slept 6-7 hours straight for the past two nights!! The girls just love him, and are always asking to hold him. I know I'm really going to have a hard time leaving him when it's time to get into the swing of school.

The first picture was taken in the nursery right after he was born. Pic #2 was later that day in my room. Pic #3 was taken Sunday just before we were released to go home, and pic #4 was taken at home. He's a belly baby, too. I'll have to post this one next to one I have of Melanie. They look very similar.Posted by Picasa
