S U R P R I S E !!!


I've mentioned before that I think
 I was born with a sign stuck to my back that says : "I love surprises."
 And here is our latest surprise:
3 weeks early

{Gage Devin Orton } 


Or at least that is what everyone is calling him. 
I wasn't planning on this decision for anther month...
But he is here. And it sounds so weird coming out of my mouth,
but he already feels SO a part of us.
Already feels like he is ours. 
It was an instant thing with this little guy.



He was born yesterday morning just before 9am.
Totally unexpected.
7lbs 10 oz.
I'll tell you the story later.
Nothing too exciting but I always love to hear other birth stories.
Later.
For now here is his sweet face.


He is very sleepy all the time. Nothing like his siblings.

Take note: Key to having cute babies.
Marry  someone with a face like this ;)


We are home and happy! 

Okay Missouri gals, who's next? 
I was suppose to be 4th or 5th....ended 1st or 2nd?
Good luck. You're gonna need it. :)
Child birth is phew,
crazy crrrrrrazy hard.

How did I forget that?


OH i know...


because most hard things...


are worth it.








no but seriously
good luck girls
                   sheesh.

Wow! Congrats! Lacey had her baby yesterday afternoon, so it sounds like you came in at #1! Andrea Bemis & Michaela Wilson are in the hospital as we speak. Becca Secor seems to be approaching home plate, but she's not quite there yet.

Whoa, Congratulations guys!! He is soooooo cute.

Nick and Sarah Leonard said...

Oh Amie and Devin he is so sweet. Nick thinks he looks like Cache. I can't wait to hold him and see him and Danny together. Love you!

My niece was born yesterday too-popular day! I got to be there for the birth and you're right...childbirth is tough stuff! She pushed for two hours...I was 30 minutes with Gray and 10 minutes with Bex, so I was so proud of her for holding out that long. Can't wait to hear your story. Where did you deliver? What do you need? I'd love to bring dinner Friday if you're up for it...I'll be over that way. Let me know. (: Also, my mom swears she saw Devin at the early session (like 5:30) at the temple a week or so ago. Does he go to that session sometimes?
