Trip to Ontario
In mid-July, Silas got to go on his first plane ride as we headed out to Ontario to visit my (Jason’s) family. He did fairly well, even sleeping on our laps on the ride there. Shannon prepared some little packages including candy, ear-plugs, and a poem apologizing for our crying son to appease our fellow […]

Video of baby Silas
In the first few weeks after Silas was born, I put together a few video clips we had taken. Welcome to our family, Silas!
Life without hubby
