Saturdays with "The Storm"...

The Storm Story:
August 15, 2005 -- The day our little surfer, Palmer Bailey, arrived to join "The Phillips Surf Shack."

Mr. Palmer arrived at 12:42 p.m., just in time for lunch! Although I have to say, he was awfully cozy in my belly! So much so, Dr. OBryan decided he needed to come out early (that's what I get for having such large babies).

Palmer's delivery was nothing like Peyton's (except that they were both planned and they came out natural, I know...Ouch!). Peyton was born at 5 a.m. with only Brent and I in the room (Dr. and nurse included). The room was dark, no lights, very calm...hence, Peyton is the "calm" child. Palmer was born to a room full of people...full of laughter and excitement in the bright sunshine of the day (I was laughing while pushing)...hence, Palmer is the "active" child. I truly believe this is why he is drama, drama, drama!

Now that Palmer is not a baby anymore, I decided I needed to stop and look at his baby pictures! He is my "favorite sweet baby." Palmer and I understand each other. He is my drama child. He is loud and does everything at 100%. He loves, laughs, gets mad, cries, hugs, plays, sleeps -- all at 100%. There is no gray area with him...and that is ok! I love him even more because he is like this!

Having two little boys is absolutely amazing. I can't imagine my life any other way -- I mean afterall, I am the Queen of the house! I don't even look at little girl clothes anymore (shocking I know). Well, I did get a pink and green room, but that's a story for another day...for now, I think I'll love on all my boys and enjoy every moment of God's amazing sense of humor!

Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite pictures of Mr. Palmer's birth!
