Aaron Silas

Here he is, our little boy, Aaron Silas. Isn't he the cutest thing ever (I'm a little bias I know). He was born Wednesday, August 12th after a 13 1/2 hr labor, so boy were we glad to see this little guy. Here he is looking at his daddy. (Sorry things are a little out of order, I've been luckiy to get anything posted.)


He likes to keep just one eye on things.
Kaylie would have nothing to do with Aaron in the hospital, this was the best shot that we got of her with him, she wasn't the least bit interested in him. It was funny when she first saw him because she gave me a look of "oh my gosh, they weren't kidding". She is slowly warming up to him though.
A proud dad with his first son.
Mom, Dad and Aaron right after delivery...what a relief it was to be done and have him here.
He's just a little guy, he tipped the scales at 5 lbs 14 oz, and was a whopping 21 inches long. But we're grateful to have the happy and healthy little boy that we've prayed for especially after all the problems we had with this pregnancy.

I hate pictures of myself, especially while pregnant but I had Jacob take this photo of me just before we headed to the hospital Wednesday morning.

Congrat!! Hope all is going well and that the adjustment from one kiddo to two goes well.

PS Please - if I only looked as good as you right before I went to the hospital to deliver. ;o) You look great!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I hope someday your son and my son meet up at BYU-Idaho and my son throws a snowball at your son, and then your son throws one back and it will be true friendship, and their whole ward will think they hate each other.
Good times.
Congrats, Grant

Yeaaaa!!! We're sooo happy for you guys! Little Aaron is so cute! Congratulations. We're glad that everything turned out well. We were a bit bummed that we couldn't see you last week, but I guess the timing just wasn't very great. ;) Maybe if we come for Christmas we could visit...:)

He is so cute and so little. My boys were never that small. I was wondering if you needed any baby clothes. I have some you can borrow if you need so just let me know and I will contact you to get your address. Congrats and good luck with the baby.

Oh Krista, he is just adorable! Congrats! I hope you're doing well, and adjusting to two kids alright! That picture with you and the two kids makes me laugh because that's exactly how Tegan was towards Bridger! She will warm up eventually, it will take some time, i won't lie! Good luck with everything, it's an adventure!
