Welcome to the World

I woke up this morning to the gentle sound of rain landing on the boat. While enjoying the soothing noise, I rolled over and reached for my phone. Then I saw it, the news I have been waiting for over the past few weeks. The text message read like this, "It's a boy 10 lbs 8 oz huge and adorable!! Collin." My heart rejoiced! My beautiful little sister is safe and precious baby Collin has arrived! There could be no better way to start my birthday weekend. Born one day before my birthday and just after Thanksgiving, I envision Collin and I celebrating birthdays together for many years to come.

Stepping out of the boat and onto the dock, I looked up and saw a full rainbow, a rare sight for San Diego, come out to commemorate Collin's birth. Welcome to the world little guy! I haven't even seen your face yet but I love you and can't wait to hold you in my arms! We are going to be buddies…
