First days

Everyone is adjusting.  Everyone loves Silas.  Beatrix is thrilled that he’s here, and has shown no jealousy.  My, my those two big sisters though, their love is rather intense, know what I mean?  But everything is going so well, and I am so full of gratitude for this family of mine, so thankful that Silas is here.
I still owe you a birth story…
Can you believe I have never written one down before? 
I do intend to as soon as I have a stretch of time to sit and write.
And then there’s his name…should I share the why behind it?
He’s awake now, gotta run.
I so treasure all of your words, congratulating us on his arrival.  Thank you.
