Welcome to the World, Sweet Baby Roman!

Welcome, Roman Alexander Dees!

7 lbs 2 oz, 20.5 inches long

Huge congrats to Tyler and Meagan on the birth of their first son! It was really wild to see my baby brother become a father last night. I am just so thrilled for Tyler and Meagan, and I know they are going to be fantastic parents. Just look at how precious their little family is:

And this is probably my favorite shot of the night. It captures a moment when Mom and Dad were standing outside the delivery room, waiting to meet Roman and listening to his first cries. This was a day and a moment we didn't think Mom would live to experience– and yet, she was there and reveling in every second! It was very emotional and we were all praising God and overflowing with gratitude. What an amazing night!
