Welcome Gavin!


Gavin Stone Reed was born Thursday May 20th, 2010 at 1:05 pm.
He weighed in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. and measured 19 1/2 inches long.
He is PERFECT!


Here are a few pics from the day.

Jen...checkin' out the menu...(what to eat when all of this is over!)

Brandon...ready to be a dad of 3!


Look at those lips!!!

Carter & Jemma with their new brother. Jemma has been SO excited about this new little guy and loves to hold and help out with him. Carter, on the other hand, is 2 and otherwise occupied most of the time. :)

Carter...a new big brother.

Jemma, big sister x2!

Mom got here late Thursday night and we are SO grateful for her help.

We are so grateful to have Gavin here.
I am always blown away by the miracle of birth, of the tangability of the spirit that accompanies them, and of how thin the veil feels during those first moments with this brand new mortal.
We couldn't feel more blessed to have this new addition to our family!
