A few more

Leaving for the hospital. Travis was really straining to push his belly out this far.
I knew the pain was coming to an end when I heard a screechy baby sound.
Burke was so funny. He insisted on trying to open his eyes but could not seem to keep them open. He just kept blinking and blinking.

You guys are so cute. I'm glad Burke is here. Awesome job Britt!

Melissa said...

CONGRATS!!!!! He is so adorable and I am glad you and him are doing well! I hope you can get some rest!

Okay so I have a few things to say. First you are totally not carrying any other weight besides your belly (I feel like I have been lied to), second Burke looks like he has some serious lungs. You might need to invest in some sound proof rooms with all those boys! What a stud already opening his eyes. If I thought Charlie looked like Travis I was wrong I have decided Burke does! Fourth is this a secret episode of bringing home baby and you had a makeup crew standing by because seriously you really do look great just after having a baby especially. And last but not least, Travis you must be feeling quite manly about now with four boys to claim. Sounds like you guys are in for an adventure!

My back hurts just looking at the first picture. ouch! And why does Travis look more tired than you do? You must be getting pretty good at this.

Travis & Britt,
Congratulations on that darling boy #4. Burke is beautiful. Haven't seen you both since Charlie was a baby at Mimi's restaurant. Good Work you, two.
PS Marti is due with her 1st Dec 16 - my 11th grandchild - It's a boy!
Love,
Aunt Toni

Congratulations on the new baby boy! We are so happy for you and your family, Burke is a beautiful baby. I agree with you about the hospital beds! Glad your home and recovering now.

Kerry and Dave said...

Congratulations!!! That pregnancy went by so fast (I'm sure much faster for me than it did for you!). You look so good for just having a baby. I hope you all come to Chicago for Christmas again this year. We just bought our plane tickets, so we'll definitely be there and it would be so fun to get our kids together and meet your new little addition!

Aubrey and Dale said...

Burke is such a little cutie pie! So glad both of you are healthy and happy. Can't wait to see who he becomes in life. All I know is he is one lucky little guy to have you for his mommy.

Kim said...

Congratulations! He's as cute as the rest. He must have gotten it from Travis because Britt has kept all of her good looks. Best of luck adjusting. I'll enjoy hearing how the transition from 3 to 4 goes.

Four boys! How wonderful! They are all just so cute and you are great parents. We were glad to hear of his safe arrival. B. Gibson

WAY TO GO GUYS!! You'll have to let me know how the transition to number 4 goes, we are two months behind you. Aaaahhhh...are we both crazy or what? So, by the time our fourth is born you should be ready to get started on number 5, right? Okay then. Good luck and good job to both both Travis and Britt! Love ya

I know it sounds silly, but there is definitely a certain "glow" about a mom who has just delivered a baby. You look great, Britt! And you've delivered another handsome little guy, for sure. Travis, keep working on that gut. It may take some time, but with a little stick-to-it-iveness, you, too, could look 9 months pregnant!
Congratulations, Petersons (no Peterdaughters)!

He fits the mold just perfect! You looks fabulous!!! That is just not fair. However, Trav looks like he is the one that could use some pain meds!!!! Either that or a little sleep. Sorry, not gonna happen for a while:) Congrats.

andrea said...

You look AMAZING Britt! Congrats to you and Travis on Boy #4, Baby Burke. He's adorable and we are excited to meet him one day. Get some sleep and good luck with 4!
