So much alike!

Everyone has been asking if Christian looks like either of our girls. Stewart and I think more like ashlyn but when we were going through our old photos it is clear to see they all look so similar. We love you all and are so grateful you are in our lives, sweet babies!

Christian Stewart Smith

Well, we finally have our little boy home with us. He arrived on September 25th at 10:49pm. Labor was actually cake and as usual went fast. Leave it to me to pay for an epidural and it not work. After I realized how painful getting a baby out was...again...I didn't waste any time, 3 pushes and he was ours. He weighed 7lbs 15oz and was 20 inches long. He is such a good mix and was such a beautiful newborn. Well at least to Mom and Dad! He has the most gorgeous full head of black hair and he fits it perfectly. After all of the heartache over what to name him Stewart and I finally realized who he really was and decided to go with Christian and of course Stewart as a middle name is to carry on his fathers heritage. Welcome home baby boy, we love you!

He's Here He's Here!

Some things are better left Un-done

Well Stewart and his buddy's decided to go on a guys trip and hike Havasupai (pictures to come) but they had some criteria that had to be taken care of before they could go. One that needed to be attended to was the growth of facial hair and as we all know Stewy has none. So here is his bold attempt to reinvent himself. This is an honest hard try at 1 month of facial grow out. Nice honey! Thank goodness they are home safe and clean shaven.

Baby Shower

Thank you to all of you have given your Time & Support in helping us with this pregnancy. It was so great to see friends and family that came to the shower to show yet again...more support. I love you all and am so grateful for the relationships I share with you. A big thanks to Jenny & Jennifer and anyone else behind the scenes who put together such a great shower! It was so great to see faces there that were unexpected arrivals and I truly am so thankful for everything that we received. I always say I don't deserve the people in my life and here is my meager way of giving you all thanks!

At the mall...dare we even go?

Ok, here is my disclaimer! I have been a little nervous to post this picture because I didn't want anyone getting the wrong impression but the result of this was too cute not to post. Reed & I were at the mall today basically wasting time since I am Stewart less this weekend and well, my little girls love listening and dancing to the loud music at Abercrombie & Fitch and before I knew it Ryleigh was running over to this giant picture of this poor kids belly and yelled out "BELLY BUTTON", of course everyone and there dog were walking by.

Reed turned bright red and coincidentally we grabbed the girls and pretty much ran the opposite direction. Poor Ryleigh is infatuated with belly buttons since mine has become an outy with this pregnancy. Honestly, you never know what these innocent children will do.
