And Then There Were Three


With joy and immeasurably deep gratitude we welcome our son,

William Charles Merel ("Will").

June 30, 2015

6 lb, 3 oz.

19 1/2 inches.

And just like that, two became three.

The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of emotion, activity, and, more than anything else, wild and stunning change. We are all starting to settle into this new life of ours, and I am so happy to be back here to write it all. There are sundry stories in this change, and I want to tell them. 

But for now, for today, there is this. A tiny person starting to stir on his favorite perch - a blanket spread on the couch. He needs me. And I am here.


  1. Beautiful baby, I can't wait to read the stories.

  2. Congratulations!! He's so precious!


  3. Have been waiting and waiting to hear the stories!

  4. Congratulations Samantha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
