Welcome to the Family, Silas!

This weekend (Saturday, February 17) was our second touch of Gospel Conversations Training in Boone, NC. Leading up to the training, Kelly had a sense that the baby could be coming soon, even though his due date was nearly 3 weeks out. I of course joked that she could have the baby any day – as long as it was Sunday, or preferably Monday. She didn’t think it was as funny as I did.

This little guy must be a Movements catalyst who knew what was happening, because he did exactly what I joked about. Kelly was up late Sunday night into Monday morning with early labor. We checked into the hospital at 9:30am Monday morning, and by 2:50pm Silas had arrived bewildered but healthy! Kelly was a superstar!

We have already had some sweet moments as a family with this little guy. His big sister was SO thrilled to meet him and was ready to jump in and hold him right away.

We expect to be released tomorrow and we’re really looking forward to getting Silas settled in to his new home and establishing rhythms that work well for all 4 of us!
