Family of SIX!

It's true! Our beautiful baby boy was born to our family on February 4th, 2011. He is perfect in every way. He was born at 11:50am. He weighed 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21-1/2 inches long. We named him Bode Michael Cook. He is the sweetest baby and his brothers and sister are completely in love with him. Here's some pictures for your enjoyment. :)


Gunner was so excited to meet his new baby brother. One of the best things he said was "Mom, this is better than Christmas presents! I love him so much!" Well put, Buddy!


Breezy was equally excited to meet Bode. She kept giving him kisses and the first thing she did when she held him was sing to him. So precious!



Caleb was definitely on pins and needles. He ADORES little babies so much we were a little apprehensive about how he'd do meeting Bode because he loves to smother little babies with his hugs and kisses. But, he actually did very well. He definitely kissed him a bunch, but was very gentle when he held him. So sweet.



It's official, we have 4, count them, F-O-U-R kids. Gotta love it!

Our first family picture at the hospital as a family of six!

All is well with us. I will post his birth story here soon. Life is hectic and chaotic but I'm so glad to have the opportunity to slow down and enjoy this little man. I love the sounds & squeaks he makes, I love the "littleness" of tiny babies. They are so close to God it's amazing. We love our little Bode and are so thankful he's come to our family.
