Edwin and I are over the moon and back a million times over to introduce our son, Rowan Clarke Eversole. If you follow me on Instagram, then you’ve seen plenty of Rowan but I wanted to give him an official introduction on the blog. Now that we’re about 6 week postpartum, I’m finally getting my grove a bit and finding time to get back to blogging. I have SO much I want to share about our first six weeks and our little love bug so I’m hoping to get into a flow with posting a few times a week. Thank you so much for your support and for bearing with me! So, without further ado, introducing Rowan Clarke Eversole!
Introducing Rowan Clarke Eversole
Rowan joined us in the world on Wednesday, September 23rd at 12:52pm. He weighed 6 pounds 15 ounces and was 20.5 inches long at birth. Rowan has a hand-me-down name with Rowan coming from Edwin’s family and Clarke coming from my family. Edwin and I never wavered on wanting to pick a full family name for him and we couldn’t be happier! Rowan came into the world surrounded by so much unconditional, endless love. Edwin and I have spent so much time just staring at him in awe and swooning over him with hearts in our eyes that we made Rowan and that Rowan is ours.
With each passing day, he has become more alive and awake. Each moment has been a joy (although many of them have been sleepy moments of joy, ha!). In addition to Edwin and me, Rowan has four incredibly loving grandparents who adore him as well as three cousins who can’t wait to meet him and aunts and uncles who have showered him in love. Edwin and I feel so blessed to have brought our son into such a large loving family!
When Rowan turned one month old, I shared on Instagram the following:
Rowan Clarke, I love you more and more with every passing day, if that’s even possible! You are getting livelier and squirmier by the day, you make the cutest most expressive faces, you have the sweetest sleepy reflex smiles, you are an expert hand holder, you love your grandparents, you are so happy taking naps on neighborhood walks, you get wide eyed staring at wallpaper, and you’ve given Edwin and me the greatest love of our lives as well as a deeper admiration for each other.
It’s so true, I had to share again.
The newborn photos in this post were taken by our lovely, sweet, talented friend Hannah who also took my maternity photos as seen here and here. We’re so grateful Hannah captured this time in Rowan’s life!
I’m off to enjoy more baby snuggles and Rowan’s sweet baby scent! xx
