With Mommy recuperating nicely, Daddy is filling in as guest blogger. While my digital grunts and monosyllabic phrases can in no way suffice for Christy's beautiful prose, at least you're getting a few pictures to distract you from the poor quality of writing......Anyway......
Quentin Joseph Silva arrived to greet us this morning, February 4th, at 8:08 this morning! He weighed in at 7 lbs., 11oz. and measured 21 1/2 inches. He put the world, or at least Chester County, on notice with some throaty yells and cries to announce his arrival. Apparently he was not very impressed, for he then proceeded to fall asleep soundly as he adjusted to his new surroundings.
Later in the day, big brother Devin came to meet his new little brother. Not sure Devin could have been more proud, and he was very gentle, loving, and to be honest, giddy at the sight of Quentin.
Quentin may have set the Pennsylvania state record for the most photographs in a 12-hour time period; we're checking official records. So these are just a few. Check back often, for there is a good chance you may get to see one or a few thousand more. Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, good wishes, prayers, and love sent our way. We felt it, and we still need it. With today being both the arrival of Quentin and the five-month mark to the day of losing Aidan, it was a surreal experience filled with a gazillion simultaneous emotions. The gift given to us today helped make the world a bit more right. More to follow. Love you all.
