One week old!

We can't believe Davis is already one week old. This week flew. Brantley and I are patting ourselves on the back. We did it! One week with three babies. The house is still standing, no one got hurt, we managed the diaper changes (17/day on average..w/ Caroline and Davis both in diapers), juggled the breakfast and dinner demands of toddlers and baby...all at once, and are still here to write about it with a grin. We can do this!

"We" turns to "I" on Monday. Brantley heads back to work and I will navigate the day with the three kiddos. My mom is heading in town to try and help. Not sure when she is going to show up, but I might have to talk her in to coming on Sunday night:)

Check out just a few of the awesome photos that my friend Abby took of Davis. She's amazing and so is our little peanut. Davis has put himself on a schedule nursing every three hours (7am, 10am, 1pm, 4pm, 7pm, 10pm, 1am, 4am). For every nursing there are a least one to two diaper changes in between. The little man can go! The only time he has trouble going back to sleep is at 4am. He must have chatted with Bowen and Caroline. They both did the same thing. Davis just needs some extra rocking and cuddle time and he passes out. It just takes some effort at 4am to get him back to bed.

Enjoy our photos!

Welcome Baby Davis!!!

We welcomed baby Davis Roberts Overton on November 10th at 2:44pm. We were shocked to hear that our third child only weighed 7 lbs 12 ozs!!!! His length...20 inches. Everyone in the delivery room had bets that all were in the 8 to 9 lbs range. We were all wrong. He's our little peanut and is perfect!

5:45 AM started pitocin
9:45 AM dilated 3cm - Doctor broke my water
12 PM dilated 5 cm
1:45 PM dilated 8 cm
2 PM - I said, "it's time to have this baby. I'm ready to push"
2:15 PM - doctor said that I was 10 cm, "you are ready"
2:40 PM - Dr. Peppy said "let's do a practice push"
2:41 PM - practice push produce the top of baby Davis's head
2:44 PM - 2nd "real" push Davis Roberts Overton is born!!!

What a special birthday present. I got Davis on my 35th birthday. Happy Birthday me and Happy Birthday Davis!

Happy Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

This year, Bowen dressed up as Spiderman and Caroline agreed to the Minnie Mouse costume...without the ears. They ran from house to house and were pooped out at the end of the night. Bowen would yell "trick-or-treat" at each door and once he received his candy he'd say, "Happy Halloween". Caroline would make sure that she had her candy bag in tow and follow Bowen house to house. So, so cute!

Taking a seat at the end of the we'll eat the goods:)

A cool drink at the end of the night

Pumpkin Carving Fun

I had no idea Caroline would get a kick out of pumpkin carving this year. She loved scooping out the "goo" with her brother. Bowen took the lead and knew exactly what to do. He picked out an awesome Spider template from a booklet and Brantley went to work.

Our 2010 Pumpkin!
