We have a new nephew!

Our new nephew Holland Ashor was born yesterday at 2:30pm!  He was only one day late, weighs 7lbs, and is 18.75 inches long.

I went to see my brother and sister-in-law on Sunday, and I told them that I had dreamed that very morning that Holland would be on his way soon.  ”You have 24 hours,” I told them, “and that baby is OUT!”  (I did clarify that I had also dreamed that I was a time-travellor.)  But it turned out I was right!  As Monica and I sat and talked, she started having contraction.  By midnight, she and Geoff were headed to the hospital, and Holland was born 12 hours later!

My dad took two of my favorite pictures: me with Corbin and Holland…

…and another photo by my dad, this time with the lantern — because EVERY baby should have a lantern, right?

Monica and Holland…

The hospital volunteers knitted little Christmasy hats for the December babies!

I’m so happy that my brother’s family of three is now a family of FOUR!
