Jack Bailey is Here

On June 8th we welcomed Jack Bailey Floyd into our family. He was 8 pounds, 12 ounces and 20 inches long, just perfect! I already can't imagine our family without this sweet little baby being a part of it. Peyton and Parker are beyond thrilled to have a their brother finally here. Peyton loves to hold him and Parker is on "paci patrol" all the time. He also gets plenty of hugs and kisses from them too. So far he has been an easy baby and I hoping it stays that way at least a little longer.

Here's Josh and I with Jack, just a few minutes old during the c-section.

Peyton and Parker surprised me with roses at the hospital....they were so sweet and it melted my heart.

Our new family of 5!

They were excited to finally get to hold Jack.

This is Mrs. Betty at the hospital seeing baby Jack for the first time. We named our Jack Bailey after her late husband. Coach Bailey was Josh's football coach in 6th and 7th grade. This man had great impact on Josh's life. He was one of the reasons Josh went into coaching football. We miss Coach Bailey but know we will see him again in heaven.

Getting Jack ready to come home.

This was taken a few days ago. He was getting over an eye infection that was in his right eye cause by a blocked tear duct. He is feeling all better now.

First time at Chickfila, watching his brothers play on the playground. I think it took me 3 hours before I actually got out the door with all three kids and Josh was even home to help me. But we made it. Ha!

All clean after his first bath.

This was taken yesterday. He is ready for some football!

Jack's new best friend was born just ten days after him, Charlie Barnard (on the right). He's the son of our good friends, Tucker and McKale. These boys are going to have to stick together since they are both the 3rd boys in each of their families.

I'm so blessed to have my boys in my life. It's a little crazy right now but I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Catching Up

I have taken alittle break from blogging for while. It just seems like we've been so busy and when I have a break then I just want to read everyone else's instead. :) Here are some pictures of what we've been up to since April with a baby update at the end.

California! We went with our good friends the Slaughters. It was a blast! The guys had meetings during most of our trip but Angela and I found LOTS of fun stuff to do while they were busy. Here's Josh and I in front of the Hollywood sign.
While we were in California Peyton had his end of the "Love Bug" program for K4. I hated to miss it but I was able to watch it live on the school's website. Peyton was in charge of the Christian flag pledge. He said his lines super fast but it got the job done and his Mama was proud. His teacher also presented him with the "hardworking" award at the end of the program. He's had a wonderful year at school and we have LOVED his teacher! I can't believe he's already completed his first year of K4 and how well he has done

My friends gave baby Jack and and I the sweetest baby shower at my sister in law's house. It was so much fun and Jack got so many cute things.
The shower was outside under the sunset on Meredith's new patio. It was perfect. I am so blessed to have these sweet girls as my friends.
Peyton attended Shiloh's youth football camp and had a ball! Parker didn't get to participate so he hung out by the water bottles and would give the older kids, high fives and knuckles during their water breaks. Poor guy, it's tough being the younger brother at times. This is Peyton waiting his turn to do one of the drills.
A few weeks ago Peyton's class had bike day at school. Savvy and Peyton were ready to take off riding in this picture.
Best buds taking a break for popsicles.
The very last day of school was last Thursday. It was Field Day so they had with lots of water activities for the kids. Here is Peyton all soaking wet having fun with water guns.

Parker also had a wonderful year at school! I can't believe how much he's change in the last year. His teachers put on a cute end of the year program for the parents. Here's Parker and cousin Reese singing their songs for us. They were precious! We are so proud of you Parker!!
Peyton skipped a few minutes of class to come watch his brother's program.
It's so hard to get a decent family picture these days with our two crazy boys but I'm sure it's about to get even harder when baby Jack comes along. At least everyone was looking at the camera, that hardly ever happens anymore.

Speaking of baby Jack. This coming Tuesday is my scheduled c-section! I am so excited and we are all very ready to meet him. It's been so fun listening to the the boys talk about having a baby in the house again. I can't wait to see what he will look like. Peyton and Parker looked nothing a like when they were born. My doctors have told me they are surprised that he still isn't here. They were predicting that he would be here by my 37th week due to his big size, being a third child and having a previous brother born at 36 weeks. However, Jack has been holding out to make his grand entrance into the world in God's perfect timing. Check back soon for more baby updates and pictures!
