hello world

it's hard to believe that it has been nearly two weeks since our son arrived! miles samuel was born on 9.9.09 at 9 am. He weighed in just short of 9lbs at 8lbs 14oz and 21 inches long. we are again so amazed at the miracle of new life! it has been an interesting two weeks as jed, lillie and i have all been battling colds, but we certainly can't complain...miles has thus far been a very content baby, our families have been extremely helpful, and lillie's adjustment (while there have been a few bumps) to being a big sister is going fairly well!
jed captured some wonderful moments of our day.

shortly after we got settled in to our room, but before miles was even back from the nursery...our room was invaded by a news crew from cbs21 (yes, they asked first). check out our son's tv debut
here! we spent the afternoon and evening resting and introducing miles to the rest of his family and some friends. kelly blessed us with some amazing pictures from that evening (see below)!

WOW!!! Congratulations. I hadn't been on your blog for a while and was happy to see a whole bunch of pictures! Welcome to this world Miles!!!
It's great to see pictures at least since I can't just pop over and say hello ;-)
God bless your family,
