Official Blog Debut....FINALLY!

Introducing Brock Colson!
I am finally getting around to introducing the bloggin world with my new little man. He is just precious and has his mommy, daddy and bis sister wrapped around his finger. Still waiting on his big bro!;) Oh, Ryder's coming around!! Anyway, I was induced on the 23rd and I only labored for 4 1/2 hours. Talk about fast! It went so much faster than I thought it would. Then he was finally here. I really thought he would be more of the size of Ella (8 1/2 lbs) because he was coming a week early, but to my surprise he was a whopping 9 lbs 13 ozs and 22 inches long! Who would of thought it. I have to stop having kids because they just seem to keep getting bigger and bigger. His delivery went pretty smooth. He got somewhat stuck but I have a fantastic doctor who knew just what to do to get him out! We have been enjoying him for a week now and I am trying to get back into the newborn swing. Getting up every two hours to eat is INTERESTING and by interesting I mean exhausting! Hopefully he'll start stretching that out soon! I got tons of sleep right when we got home from the hospital but that was probably because my mom (aka baby nanny, house keeper, cook and ANGEL) was there to help out. By "help out" I mean she did everything! Now she has left me. How dare her!;) She did take two of my little stinks home with her for a week though. That has been nice, but it has made for a very quiet house. I kind of miss that noise. Anyway, I didn't get my camera out much I knew my mom had her camera on her at all times. Tomorrow I will be attempting to get some newborn pics from my little chunker. Wish me luck. In the mean time, here are a few pics that I did capture!

Getting ready to come home from the hospital.

First bath

I don't think he is enjoying himself!

Calm after the bath!
Here is a cute smiley pic that Jason captured on his phone!

Congratulations Katie! I am amazed at how big he is! Kudos to you for pushing out that little guy! I'm glad everything went smoothly for you during the delivery. Hopefully you'll start getting more rest soon...it is so tiring in the first few weeks. Best of luck and many blessings to you and your newly extended family!

Hey, I want credit for making him smile. His aunt Mandy isn't going to get to see him nearly enough, so I need all the credit I can get.

I can't believe that 2-3 month old sized baby came from your skinny little body. Incredible.
How nice that your Mom comes and helps and she even took the "bigs" home with her...sweet.
Annie and you are very blessed to have such nice parents.
Love that grinnin' photo. Newborns are great. They take some getting used to, but they are just so precious.

We are very excited for your new addition! I have to say I laughed out loud when I saw him the first time...he's sooooo cute, but he's big enough to be 3 months old!!! (Just have to tell you that I weighed 9 lbs. 14 oz., and Jess weighed 10 lbs. 11 oz....and I always laugh when I see our baby pics!)
Your family is so precious! And what a mom you have....she rocks the house! Ya'll are a lucky family for sure!!!
Congratulations!!!
