3 men and a lady

I'd like to introduce you to the newest little man in our family. 

Rad Aaron Miller

Born February 26th, 2013 via C-Section

At 4:25PM

6.6 lbs and 21 inches long

And the biggest miracle?

His little heart is totally FINE.

We went to the hospital on the 26th because his heart rate kept decelerating and was getting slower and slower.

Because of this and the previous ultrasounds, scans, and echos we'd done on his heart, we'd found 2 heart defects and our doctors and specialists were prepping us for our little guy to need surgery as soon as he was born. 

We were scared.

But when he was born they did an echo on him right away and found NOTHING wrong with his heart. 


The cardiologist showed us the original images of his heart with the defects and the images from the echo they had just done and he said he could not explain why his heart was now OK. 

Everything pointed to him needing surgery, but he was fine.

We had some more testing done in the hospital and every test came back positive for a healthy little heart.

I believe that God does answer prayers and that miracles do still happen. 

Through all of this Jake and I have found comfort in this verse;

 "I will go before your face. I will be on your right hand and on your left, and my Spirit shall be in your hearts, and mine angels round about you, to bear you up." - D&C 84:88

We LOVE our little Rad.

He is a peaceful, sweet, bright-eyed baby and we are smitten with him.

So far I have had a couple of panic attacks but nothing like the PPD I experienced with Rhett. 

Again, another miracle. :)

We love our 2 boys!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, for you love, thoughts and prayers.

  15. Chords introduce harmony into music and it is the effects
    created by chords that produce the inspiration behind so much music and make it
    so satisfying both to listen to and to play.
    Do not overlook this part of your learning. It is very soothing to hear the sound of piano and based on such vast change of scales, a song
    sounds so melodious.

  36. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content
    seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
    I'm not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let
    you know. The style and design look great though! Hope
    you get the problem solved soon. Kudos

    is sharing information, that's really good, keep up writing.

  38. Make sure the juicer will juice both fruits and vegetables,
    and is not just a citrus juicer which might catch your eye because they are generally cheaper.
    Some fruits may need extra energy to extract the juice.
    Buying a good quality juicer will ensure that it can cope with
    the fruits and vegetables that you are placing in
    it, also it will last a lot longer.

  39. There are many sources to choose from that can offer simple
    solutions to the problems you are experiencing with your canine.
    In the event you employ strategies that may be employed in agreement together with your dog's normal urge and instincts, you'll be able to improve its character and provide restrictions that can
    maintain your dog satisfied. Dog obedience
    training is a bit more than trained responses.

  40. Douching and unique scented bathroom items can upset
    the pure stability of bacteria in the vagina and make yeast infections much more possible.
    Because of its anti-fungal properties, it is also sometimes recommended
    for vaginal yeast infections. That will also help
    restore the balance in your body and get things back on track.
