The First Boy! Rowdy's Nebraska Fresh 48 Session

Updated: Apr 16

This was super special fresh 48 for me. This was my nephews fresh 48!

My sister in law Rikki had a very difficult labor and delivery with my niece. It was her first pregnancy and to say her delivery didn't go as planned, doesn't cover it. But none the less. Rikki and Aj welcomed their daughter McKenzie in 2015.

Fast forward to June 2018.

Rikki and her doctors were well aware of what happen last time.

They all agreed a scheduled C-Section would be best. So they set the date.

They welcome Rowdy on June 15th 2018

A healthy and happy boy!

Kenzi just wanted to sit and hold him. Give him kisses all over his squishy little face.

I am so glad that I got to take my girls along with me to visit. Kylie was mesmerized by how small and new he was. This being the first baby she had seen, that new.

My youngest Addy really wanted to stay with her Aunt Rikki for the summer. She even said she would change diapers.

Many years ago my husbands family hosted a foreign exchange student named Ursula.

His family has kept in close connection, and we get to see them at big life events.

Like graduations, babies and weddings.

Rikki was super lucky to be able to host Ursula's daughter Svenja for her 10th grade year.

Once Rikki found out when her due date was, she knew she needed to extended Svenja's passport.

Svenja was able to get her passport extended by a few weeks, and she was able to meet Rowdy.

She cuddled him close and got to enjoy him for 48 hours until she had to head back to Germany.

I think AJ was a little excited to have son.

AJ would soothed Rowdy as he wash changing his diaper. Shushing him and doing the parent bounce.

This was my father in laws first grandson. He is one proud Papa!
