Bethany Jane Crow

Monday, February 9th at 11:50 p.m. , Rhonda (Ken's mom) came over to our house to watch the boys and Ken and Wendy were off to Lewisville Medical Center to have the baby.

On February 10th, at 3:20 a.m. out she popped with only 3 pushes and a great epidural! She was 6 lbs. 7 oz. and 19 inches long. Our little girl is our littlest baby (girls are supposed to be small and petite...right?)

Does she look like Ken or what? Don't you just love the bow the nurses put on the hat so she looks more like a girl?

After school the boys came to visit and they each beamed as they held their new sister!



The whole family together! I can't believe I have four children now...AHHHHH!

Going home...


Carter is sooooo into his baby sister! He loves to hug her, kiss her, touch her, hold her, and is very helpful by bringing me diapers and wipes, throwing away diapers, picking out clothes (he loves all the girl clothes), giving her a binky, helping with her bath, and telling me what she needs when she cries.

Some of his favorite things to say to her are, "Ohhhhh, baby!" and "Oh, he's just so cute!!" (we are working on the he/she thing), and "It's O.K. baby!"

Sometimes he loves her a little too much, but I am glad that he is involved in helping me care for her and not acting jealous at all...yet :)

Here are some more cute pictures of her. She changes so much everyday and gets more and more personality with each day. She likes to squeak a lot and it sounds like either an angry cat or a miniature car peeling out.

It has been so fun to put her in all the girly stuff and when she cries and makes noises it really does sound more feminine than the boys did. She has already been such a blessing. We are so grateful that she is a healthy happy little girl!

Ah Wendy! What a beautiful little girl. Don't they look soooo teeny when you put them in the carseat to take them home! Congratulations! She is the sweetest thing ever. We're expecting our 4th as well in August. I hope our little one is as gorgeous as the latest Crow!

It's so strange to see a little Crow baby all dressed in pink! She's looks so sweet! Congrats!

Leanne said...

You look great--even a couple days after having her! Glad the boys are great big brothers. We are now having our fourth girl in June--I thought we might be able to follow in your footsteps and get a different gender the 4th time around, but no such thing for us. So, enjoy your little girl and boys! :)
