A Warm Welcome to Miles

We just had our little boy Miles Cameron Gowen, on November 9th. He was 8 lbs 5 oz and 21.5 inches long. He is a healthy and happy baby and just as precious as ever.

As we've been sitting in the hospital, we haven't been able to keep our eyes off of him.  He looks around with his big beautiful eyes and I can't help, but wonder what he is thinking.  It's a whole new world being born and an incredible journey growing and learning through life.  I love watching each stage of life children go through and it's so fun to think that we went through that same thing not long ago.

It's amazing to see Miles and his personality, being only a few days old, and seeing how different he and Emree are from each other.  Miles is super laid back and relaxed about life and gobbles down his food in less than 10 minutes almost every time.  He is a beautiful addition to our family and we are so excited to have him here.  He has such a sweet spirit about him. It's such a special time having a newborn in the home.  It's a time where you come to refocus your life and remember what really matters most.

Emree still isn't quite sure what is going on, but once we get home I think she will start to understand and will probably love him more than we imagined. ;) Miles is a huge blessing to us and I am feeling so blessed to have two beautiful kids who are so different, but so special.  I am so grateful to my Heavenly Father for allowing us to have the opportunity to raise Emree and Miles.  It is a privilege to be to have these sweet spirits in our home. 

Welcome to the family Miles. We love you so much and are so excited to have you in our lives!
