new arrival

Pete and Linsey had it all planned out. Yesterday they closed on their “new” house, today new carpet would be installed upstairs while the movers did the heavy lifting, tonight Linsey’s mom would arrive, tomorrow after church we’d all pitch in to move the small stuff and get everything settled, and early Monday morning they’d head to the hospital to have a C-section delivery of their new son.

Lincoln Knox Macy had a different plan. He let Linsey know about it late last night, and at 2:07 this morning the world got a little brighter.

I felt bad that Linsey’s mom didn’t get to spend Lincoln’s first day with him, but because she didn’t—I did!

Which is why I was around to take so many pictures. Erin took this one. Lincoln expresses his opinion.
