Miles Brence Ehrlich

We have been waiting for him to arrive all summer long, and he is finally here!!!  Meet our newest family member.  He is a sweet baby, very calm and easy going.  We have had a lot of fun getting to know him each and every day.  We are so blessed to have him as a part of our family. 

Miles Brence Ehrlich
Born:  July 29th at 1:53 pm
Weight:  9 lbs. 3 oz.
Height:  19.5 inches

We chose the name Miles a while ago, but then went back and forth with it for quite a while.  I kept hearing other names that I liked, but kept coming back to Miles.  One of the reasons we liked it was because it was a little old-fashioned, but not too much.  Also, neither Tom nor I have had a student by that name.  That was definitely something we considered.  One thing that I have always liked is the uniqueness of names.  I wanted something that people could say correctly, but that wasn't a name you hear often.  So the name Miles stayed on our lists.


Now you may be wondering about his middle name.  I will definitely say that it is the most unique name we've come up with.  When we named Jaycee, her middle name is a combination of her grandmothers' names.  We tried and tried to figure out what would work with regards to this one that didn't sound to weird or girly.  It was hard because my dad's name is Brian and Tom's dad's name was Clarence.  Thus the name Brence came about.  See if you can figure it out.

Miles with Grandma Ehrlich

Tom went to get Jaycee for a visit with her new baby brother.
She really loves him a lot!!!
The first thing she said when she saw him was, "Oh, he's so cute mommy, can we take him home?"
Kids are so funny!!!

Loving her brother

She so badly wanted to hold him.  This was as close as she could get.

Our dear friends Travis and Meagan came up to visit us for an evening.
Thanks for bringing Emperor's for Tom.

The hospital room was cold, which gave me an excuse to put this cute sleeper on him.

So precious when he sleeps.  He is definitely a great sleeper.

Getting ready to go home.

It almost doesn't seem possible that he is 5 days old.  We spent so much time waiting for him, and now that he's here, it doesn't seem real.  I am excited to see what this year is going to look like for us now a family of four and how much he will learn and grow and how much I can shape and mold both him and Jaycee as I continue staying home to care for them.
