Jill! Congratulations! I'm so relieved, and so sorry I missed your call! Duni called me and my sister pubilshed my blog.

Silas is simply adorable! He's so tiny--I can't believe it! I really am just in AWE that this has happened! Wish I would have congratulated you 'in person'!

Welcome to the mom club!

Gulp, tear, sigh! Oh, so many emotions. God is SO GOOD!!! It so amazing to see His hand. Our God is truly a God of miracles. Thank you for letting us share this with you. We are so happy for ya'll.

Jill and Marshall (or should I say, mommy and daddy), we are so happy for you both. He is so cute and he looks so tiny! I can't wait to see him in your arms. I can't believe the number of pictures that you have of him. That is so wonderful! Now you have to finish packing for your trip. Not long now!

With Love,

He is so precious! Those pictures in the slide show were tooo adorable for words!

Congratulations mom and dad!

Rob & Bri said...

Are you three ready for the important titles: mommy, daddy, and big sis (Sophie). I know you are! I hope these next two weeks go by fast enough to not get too ansy and slow enough that you don't overlook anything in the packing process. Don't know how that'll work -- but HE does!

K.P. said...

Praise the Lord. Mr. SC is so beautiful! He is a vision in pink, too! :) I am so happy for you and Marshall! I pray the next couple of weeks go quickly and everything falls into place for travel!

Thanks for the call! It was great!

Wow, Jill!!! I'm so excited for you guys. He is precious!! The slide show had me tearing up. My favorite pictures were of him and his pink pacifier and of course the one with the photo album of you and Marshall (that really started the tears)!! Just think, soon you will have a ton of pictures of you 3!! He's absolutely adorable. He's got the biggest eyes and I can't wait to meet him in person!! God is good!! Ashley

Andrea said...

WOW.....tears..........he is beautfiul. Just perfect. He looks like he fits RIGHT into your family. It is amazing. Well, with God in control, it really isn't. I am so happy for you and can't wait to follow your trip there. You have no idea (oh wait, yes you do) how much it meant to me to talk to you today and hear you say that you would hold and kiss Gabrielle for us........makes me cry to think of it, whisper in her ear that her mommy love her. I CAN"T WAIT to see this gorgeous boy in your arms. You are so close, God bless!!!!!
