Bode Ray Brucker entered our lives and has completely taken us by storm. He is the happiest baby EVER! Brad and I were sure we'd be getting payback as Avery was a wonderful baby. But he has been even better. I think God knows what you need when you need it and he has blessed us with a wonderful boy. A mother's love is a strange thing. I never understood it completely until Bode was born. How I love my children and my heart has expanded even more for Avery.
Here is Bode's birth video (no live birth shots! EEK!)

I was at home with Bode for 7 weeks and time was well spent getting into our new life and routine. He adapted to our home life right from the start dogs and all! He is definitely a little piggy who loves to eat!
April brought Bode's first holiday and we enjoyed Easter Sunday at our church. Our first outing as a family of 4!

Bode turned 2 months old! He is sleeping great and eating even better. He loves to play under his Play Gym and watches the lights closely. Avery loves Bode and is such a great helper to Brad and I. She can change diapers, fix bottles and put Bode to sleep.
My first Mother's Day as a mom of 2 was perfect. Brad surprised me with 2 James Avery birthstone rings. (Avery and Bode's birthstones.) They are beautiful and I wear them stacked everyday. We then had a delicious lunch at Charleston's and celebrated my mom as well.
Another one of my Mother's Day gifts was a photo shoot with my 2 precious babes. We shot down in the Paseo District and the colors turned out so beautiful!
June, July and August to follow....
