Jedidiah Wake and Lilia Mercy present their NEW baby brother…
Simeon Thomas McCallister
Born joyously at home at 10:30 pm on his due date – November 15, 2012.
Weighing in at 8 pounds, 5 ounces and measuring 20.5 inches long.
His timing was impeccable. He arrived the night before my mom flew into town. We had a lovely first morning as a family of five, and then my mom arrived to join in the delight and to help us in oh so many ways.
We have had an amazing and eventful first 8 days. They have truly been some of the happiest days of my life. Josh was a great supporter, encourager, and companion through my quick labor (birth story to come in a later post). And, he has been a hard-worker, keeper of the peace, and fun daddy over the past week. We are sad to see him go back to work tomorrow, but having him home for the first week of Simeon’s life has been a huge blessing.
Simeon’s name means “God was listening.” His nickname, “Sim,” means “the listener.” His middle name, Thomas, is after my dad – Robert Thomas “Tom” Nisbett, a man of faith and love and joy and passion. We are excited to name this new boy in our family after his incredible Pop Pop Tom! We are enjoying every moment of getting to know this new person God has created. He is a joy already!
