Silas Was Born

~Sweet Silas~
Do you believe in miracles?
I do!

Kimmy's due date was May 16th.
 I really, really, wanted to be there to help Kimmy deliver Silas. 
So we decided to have me drive over to Boise, early.
I pulled into Boise May 2nd around 1:30 PM.
I drove Kimmy to her appointment with
her chiropractor at 5:00 PM.
Labor started at 5:30 PM as we left the office.
She was in full labor by 6:30 PM.
Silas arrived  May 2nd at 7:53 PM.

It was a home birth and a family affair!

Lulu giving a kiss to mom during hard labor.
Levi had hugs for his mom.

Each of these precious faces
are a miracle from 

And I have been a witness to each of their births.
I am a BLESSED Grammie- Goo (grandma).

  2. Hi Christine, Congrat's to your daughter, her family and to you! What a beautiful little guy; my oldest daughter is due the first part of June but I expect her to be early(she always is). How wonderful that your girl has a home birth; mine have midwives at the hospital but I've never been in the room when a grand was born.
