I don't have a lot of time on my hands to do a full post right now, but here are a couple links to show you some pictures of our beautiful baby boy!
Bella Baby Photography came around the hospital to take pictures of the newborns. They came out BEAUTIFULLY!! Go to the link and click on "VIEW PHOTOS," then type in "1114owencook" (all lowercase) in as the password, and it will take you to a slideshow of pictures of 3-day-old Owen!
This is my facebook album documenting my whole pregnancy, so you've already seen all the baby bump pictures, but I am ALWAYS posting new picture of Owen so check back often! :0)

Your baby has really plumped up. He weighs about 6.8 pounds and he's over 19 1/2 inches long (like a leek). He has a firm grasp, which you'll soon be able to test when you hold his hand for the first time! His organs have matured and are ready for life outside the womb.
Wondering what color your baby's eyes will be? You may not be able to tell right away. If he's born with brown eyes, they'll likely stay brown. If he's born with steel gray or dark blue eyes, they may stay gray or blue or turn green, hazel, or brown by the time he's 9 months old. That's because a child's irises (the colored part of the eye) may gain more pigment in the months after he's born, but they usually won't get "lighter" or more blue. (Green, hazel, and brown eyes have more pigment than gray or blue eyes.)
