It's a BOY!!!

We are THRILLED to welcome Owen Michael Wade to our family.
He was born 12/27/10 @ 5:38 pm weighing in at 7lbs 12oz and 19.5 inches.
At his one week appt yesterday he is back up to 7lbs 8oz after a weekend feeding frenzy and he is 21 inches. We think he must have been 'under' measured at birth.

I don't think I have ever been more in love with Mike than I am right now. He was a perfect birth coach, and he is the most perfect dad to this little boy. It brings me to tears to watch him care for this baby. I knew he would be a great dad, but I am finding that my description of his parenting skills far surpass any adjective I can find. I hope this little man grows up to be just like his daddy.

Look at this sweet face! He's is getting more expressive everyday, and we are just having a blast. Grandma and Papa Cooper have been here, so we are even getting sleep. Their help has been invaluable, and we are looking forward to another 5 days with Grandma and Papa Wade. Mike, Owen, and I are truly, truly blessed by this little boy and all of our helpers.

Happy 2011!! Love, Mike, Heather, and Owen
