EVERYONE MEET THE LOVE OF OUR LIFE--MR. ROMAN














































He finally arrived Tuesday morning at 8:09. He weighed 6 lbs 12 oz and is 20 inches long. It was amazing. I was in labor what seemed like forever, but the epidural was wonderful and I was able to savor and enjoy all of it. He has the sweetest demeanor. So far the only times he's cried is when he's hungry, and diaper changes. We love us some Roman. I'm so amazed at how much I love him. Women always say that and I always thought that I understood what they mean, but it wasn't until Tuesday that I could ever comprehend how amazing it is to bring life into this world and to be given such an opportunity. We are so excited. Here are a few pics of our little sweetie.

these pics were on our camera the best are what other people were able to take so keep looking and of course we will update!!!

I keep staring at these pictures. I think he looks like JM, but there is still something that reminds me of Jonathan, especially in that 3rd one. Has anyone else mentioned that? Love, Mom

sorry about this, but actually it's the 7th picture that reminds me of Jonathan.
