So blessed...

... with a precious, healthy son,
Owen John!

Born on Saturday morning at 6:43 am
weighing 8lbs...

... a special little bundle - so grateful!
oh, the love :)

Our little man...
Daddy's first cuddle :)

Ranen's first look... 
 ... so happy...

Owen's grandparents...

... and Opa and Oma Oudshoorn, we hope you will get to see
him in a few weeks :)
 One of the best doctors EVER:
We really appreciate you Dr. Smith
When discharging us he spent time with us conselling us
and giving us many words of encouragment and advice...
And then he prayed for us...

 At home...
... having a bath - Ranen loves helping :)

One final picture... 

Off for some sleep... xo

  4. Congratulations! We are so happy for you. I heard the good news over the weekend...but the messenger (hubby) never knew the name. Looking forward to meeting him sometime soon.

  5. Congratulations B & M! We are so happy for you that you have been bleesed with the birth of Owen. I have been thinking of you alot the last couple of weeks... Hopefully you can get lots of sleep so that you can fully enjoy your little bundle while he is still so little. Time really does fly and before you know it they aren't very little anymore! - Krista N.
