Silas // The First Year

I let out a squeal and clapped my hands over my mouth. Before me was one of Silas’ very first photos-an ultrasound.

“You?” I whispered in excitement. She nodded. The sun filtered through the window, reflecting how I felt inside: excited and joyful. I couldn’t stop smiling on the way home, and already knew God had a special plan for their baby.
From the very first moment, I was head-over-heels for this baby boy. I had prayed for him for years, and could not be more excited to meet him. Holding him at just two days old was surreal, one of those moments when you can’t help but see how good God is.
Every few months in this past year I walked down the road to capture Silas’ precious milestones as he grew. Today, on his birthday, I’m sharing some of my favorite moments!
Happy Birthday Silas!
