picture overload... from Saturday

    moments after birth.

 burrito baby! 


Daddy & Son

 meeting his big sisters for the first time. 



    Brother meets brother.


   Katie and Jason are taking care of our 3 crazy kids while we enjoy this time in the hospital.
   Thank you guys, SO much! 

   probably thinking about labor....




   I think he's thinking "oh YOU'RE that loud voice I've been hearing??" :)



    Christina, Gabbi and Luci {from church} came to see us!

   Annika meets baby Miles :)

    Justin and Dylan Dean {from church}

 We skyped with Jason's parents and Grandma from the hospital 
and I loved a couple of these screen shots Jason captured. 
Having Grandparents meet their new Grandson over the computer 
definitely isn't ideal... but we were thankful for this at least. 
They arrive for a visit in a few weeks! 

    it was quite an eventful day... and this is how we ended it :)

We feel so completely blessed. 
Our meals are already being delivered and we have offers for 
visits and other help needed pouring in, with visits from family 
just around the corner. 
Thank you to all of you for your kindness and love.
