Welcoming Miles

We are so thrilled to announce the arrival of our 4th child, Miles Griffeth Rapp, on March 9 at 9:13 pm. He weighed in at 7 lbs 10 oz, and is 19 inches long. Chis and I had such a great day together as we anxiously awaited his arrival. I was scheduled to be induced, so my mom was able to come and stay with our other children while Chris kept me company as I labored. I was very comfortable and we really had a great time welcoming this little miracle into our lives. We feel extremely blessed to add another healthy baby boy to our family. The kids were so anxious to come and meet him, and at their request, we celebrated Miles's birth with a cute little cake! Jonah is a very proud big brother, and Mia naturally fulfills the motherly role. She was immediately telling little Brady, "Be soft Bwady, don't squeeeeze him". We'll have our hands full just trying to protect our new baby from Brady. Mandi is feeling great and anxious to completely recover. We can't wait to take little Miles home and watch him grow!
