Roman David Perkins

Our little boy came into this world on Jan. 6th @ 10:39AM. He weighed in at 8lbs 12 oz, 19.5 inches long. The induced labor was long as I expected it would be (approx. 30 hours) but after about 24 hours I got the FABULOUS epidural & it was smooth sailing from then on out!! We've been home for a day & are enjoying every second of having him!! Poor guy was tongue tied (the ligament under him tongue was tiny so he couldn't stick his tongue past his bottom gums), but we went to the specialist today & got it sniped & he's sucking a lot better now, which we're thankful for! Here are some pictures to feast your eyes on : )

Meeting each other for the 1st time- BEST FEELING EVER!!

He's been a happy boy from the start

We're a family!

Glad my 10th grandchild is here! I've been looking to see when you post and glad to see little Roman. I think all of my "bad" is being passed down to the grandkids. I was tongue-tied also. Sorry Roman! Love you all, Proud Grandma

Oh my goodness he is so sweet! I cried when I saw the first picture, it is such a sweet moment to meet your baby for the first time. We can't wait to meet him, but don't want to risk bringing germs to the sweet little guy. P.S. Taylor has been jabbering away since he walked in,"Anton! Washey, Anton, Anton! Baby see new baby, have boppy!" What a beautiful family you have, we are so excited for you.
