What I’ve been doing with my weekend

My wife came home from the hospital on Wednesday, after getting three months of bed rest. And then, on Saturday, she went right back again — and you can see the results.

Elizabeth Joy Chattaway (4 lbs, 12 oz) was born at 3:17pm, and Thomas Lawrence Chattaway (5 lbs, 2 oz) at 3:46pm, on February 4 at BC Women’s Hospital. That’s her above, and him below.

(And believe it or not, the fact that Thomas Lawrence happens to be the name of the protagonist of my favorite movie of all time is a pure coincidence; the name was my wife’s idea, not mine!)

And just because I’m in the mood for a flashback, I’m going to re-post the image that first let us know that my wife was carrying more than one child, way way back in August:

    Congratulations, Peter. Wow.

    Today is the first bright and sunny day in Seattle in about two months, and I’m going to choose to believe that this is in celebration of the end of a difficult chapter and the beginning of a new and exciting episode. We will be praying that you are surprised by joy, day after day, as the children grow.

  • Congratulations, Peter! Fantastic news.
