Crew Stedman Bethune

He’s here, he’s here!

Last Friday, April 14th, we welcomed our SON, Crew Stedman Bethune with wide open arms at 1:43pm. Arriving on the 42 week mark (WHEW), he was a much bigger baby than anyone could have guessed (over 9 lbs!), when my midwives had been predicting a 7, MAAAYBE 8 lb. baby. We are so, so overjoyed to see this sweet face & meet the little one that we feel like we already know so well. He is such a little sweetheart, & mama & papa are already completely wrapped around his tiny fingers.

We’re also overjoyed to be out of the hospital & slowly figuring life out at home with Crew. He is an absolute dream come true, & we honestly can’t believe we get to keep him. His face is just the best thing I’ve ever laid my eyes on, & getting the “mama” look from him honestly fills my heart till it bursts, over and over again. He loves staring at Jared’s face, & we’re figuring out breastfeeding at a seemingly great pace. Jared has a couple more days left at home with us, & even though his paternity leave has flown by WAY too fast, I’m SO grateful he had time off at all as we navigate this new way of life.

I can’t believe he’s finally here. I have so, so many posts to share with you but we’re taking our time & soaking up these newborn days as much as we can. Thank you for the well wishes! I’ll be back with 48237987234 photos from now till forever. He’s just really cute.

    You and Jared are obviously very comfortable in your parenting roles and Crew benefits from your
    confidence, as we can see a contented, healthy little lad in each and every photo. He is a perfect
    little fellow and resembles both of you. It speaks of deep love and devotion over and over.
    We are so happy for you all. Walk with God and enjoy every day.
