Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails...

It's time for another Bowdenisms Shout Out!

This time, it is a Congratulations message to Jay and Rachel! Their baby boy Trey Douglas was born almost two weeks ago (a week late, but worth the wait!) We finally got to meet him last Tuesday, and he is stunning! I’m so excited to have a baby close by that we can hold and play with all the time. It satisfies my desire for little-chubby-cheek-munching, but comes with none of the parent-type responsibilities. Love it!

We had planned a Welcome shower, but things with a third baby get a bit crazy, so we had a mini celebration during our typical American Idol get together. I brought my latest art project:

And Rachel brought something she's pretty proud of:

Trey is an absolute darling. I fawned over him all night. But Dustin still found time to practice his skills:

So, many congratulations and best wishes to the growing family. Dustin and I are so happy to be a part of your lives!

P.S. Be sure to check out Jay's musings here. However, with scrumptious new babies in town, (not to mention 2 older Mitlo delights) it may not be updated as frequently as it once was. And I don't blame him one bit!


  1. The cake is gorgeous..teach me how, dear daughter!

  2. Your mom is right, the cake is gorgeous! And it's still holding strong! I thought I might have to dis-assemble it for diaper usage, but fear not!

    Thanks for the shout out! You guys look like naturals, gettin' all cozy with Trey!


  3. The cake is ok. But it kind of pales in comparison to making life.
