Roman 5 weeks old


I can't believe how much he is growing and changing every day! He really doesn't like getting his picture taken, so instead of setting up for photoshoots, I just try to capture a few candid photos of him. I love his expressions, so I wanted to show some of the many expressions.....not to mention the hand gestures. Lol!

The half smile :-)


Good Posture Roman!!!!

Hey mom, look how cute I am!!!

Are we almost done with pictures?????

Lol. Crossed eyed!!!

Throwing peace signs!!!

Wow, nice hand gesture there Ro. He does looooovvvve snuggling in his dads "nook".

I love how he's looking right up at dad.

Me and my baby!!!

We love to snuggle. I just can't get enough of him.

Roman Judd Strain


Roman was born December 20th at 11:59 am. He weighed 6 lbs. 13 ounces. My water broke at 4:00 am and on the way to the hospital Jared stopped to get a Redbull since everyone warned Jared how exhausting babies can be. Once we got to the hospital they started me on Pittosin (not sure how you spell that?), but his heart rate was dipping, so they would take me off it. So, we thought it would take a while, but in less than an hour I went from a 3 to a 9 (dialating). So, after that everything happen pretty quickly. I was lucky not to feel much pain, except the very beginning of contractions. Man, that epidural is truly amazing!  We are so blessed to have a healthy baby and were so happy he came just in time for Christmas! Our lives have changed so much already. I still can't believe I am a mommy! Jared is so in love with him, and it has been so fun to watch him with Roman. We hope you all had a great holiday!
