Kase Logan Braaten

On the morning of the 25th, we welcomed little Kase Logan to our little family!
8 lbs 5.5 oz, 20.5 inches
7:12 am

It was a very long some 16 hours from when my water broke until I actually started productive labor, and then very intense labor from then till he was born. Thus, leaving mommy and dadd exhausted, and thus resulting in a very quick blog post...but here are a few pictures from the past day we want to share!

Very last belly picture. You can tell I was super tired here, and still had many (unbeknown to us then, thank goodness) long hours to go!

One of the nurses grabbed our camera just as he was being born and took some amazing pictures, most of them private and just for us, but I loved this one of daddy and his 3rd perfect son! The emotion of holding your brand new baby, the tiny miracle you helped create never loses any ounce of special-ness and pure joy, no matter how many times you've done it before!

Gramma Mary stayed with the boys, and stopped by quick on their way to meeting, getting to meet Kase when he was 2 hours old! Logan took a cute video of their first encounter with him :) They love him! They are always wondering where he is, or when he's crying Coy asks "what's he saying?" (this is cute because we don't know what he's saying either! LOL) Bentley always has an extra sassy in hand for Kase, and *gently* offers it to him if he's fussing. They need to watch each diaper change, and kindly hand us wipes. When Bentley finds a stray sock, he brings it over announcing it's "baby sock".

Last night, he slept for EIGHT hours straight!
So awesome for mommy and daddy, huh?

Here we are with our midwife, Jeanne, and a brand new baby! I cannot express enough thanks to her and her nurses for all the work they helped us through! 

So now, Im off to cuddle a sweet new baby while the house is still quiet :)

 (daddy and the big brothers are currently in town, monkeying around. heehee)
