Specialist Steven Scheffer with the U.S. Army returned to Missoula this week after nine months in Afghanistan.
It was the first time he met his youngest son.
His wife Shania stood at the Missoula International Airport with a sign that said, "I'm not as tiny as I used to be, come meet your mini me."
She also posted this video of Steven reuniting with his dogs Ariel and Elvis.
Steven left when Shania was about 17 weeks pregnant. Their youngest son is now three months old.
