Owen Klarke Bagby

O my son, give me your heart. 
      May your eyes take delight in following my ways.  Prov. 23:26

Owen was born on St. Patricks Day, March 17th, 2012 @ 7:13am weighing in at 8 lbs. 8 oz.

Kelli woke me up around 5am and said she had been having contractions since 2am.

We left for the hospital a little before 6am and Kelli had the baby just over an hour later.

We were a little nervous about the higher risks of natural birth after having to have a C-section the first time but the labor went great and Kelli did amazing!  No drugs!  Didn’t even have time to get an I.V. in.  I was very proud of Kelli’s strength.

Gram got to meet his little brother later in the afternoon and loves having him around. Tonight when I was playing with Gram in his room, Owen let out a cry and Gram put his toys down immediately and said, “OWEN!” and ran out to check on him.

So far Owen has been really mellow.  Gram was NOT a sleeper from the beginning but O loves it so far.  Let’s hope it lasts!

Obviously, later this week after we get settled in a bit and figure out what life looks like with 2 kids, I will be brewing up an O’Bagby’s Celebration IPA in his honor.  🙂

Also, thanks to all the Evergreeners who texted us and congratulated us this morning.  Pretty hilarious to get 30 texts at one time.  Nice work!
