I love....

...that we were showered with love the minute we got home.
Our fridge was stocked and our front room was covered in diapers and clothes.



Miles was given the warmest welcome at his baby shower.



I love that my mom came to help us get situated.



I love that Miles responds to my little kisses.



I love that Magnus is doing such a good job adjusting to our new life.
Just yesterday Magnus heard Miles crying and he ran to his cradle and ran to me and back up to the cradle.
He was letting me know that baby needed me.
It was pretty sweet.



I love all the little ones who are so captivated by a new baby.





I love his eyes.
They aren't open very long but when they are...look out,
it's heart melting.


I love that Miles' first bath was a family affair.



I love that Miles raises one arm like he has a question all the time.



I L O V E that Romney has been off work for a month.
It has been so nice to get this time together and figure out how to be parents together.


...and last...
I love the sleeping smiles!



Words cannot describe our gratitude.
We have felt so much love and support from all our family and friends.
We have appreciate all the phone calls, texts, emails, meals and such generous gifts.
We have been touched by the amount of people who have been praying for us to have a baby.
We are grateful.

Miles is 4 weeks old tomorrow.
I can not believe how fast time has gone.
He is a sweet baby!
We are in love.

At this time it sounds like Movable Type is the preferred blogging platform available right now.

(from what I've read) Is that what you're using on your blog?

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform
are you using for this website? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've
had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
