Today one of my best friends, Kevin Bell, and his wife Karen had their first baby BOY, Griffin Hayes Bell. They really persevered during this pregnancy as Karen was on bed rest for many weeks, some at home and some in two different hospitals. Griffin is a bit of a miracle baby. He was originally due in January, but because of the struggles they were having, the doctor had scheduled to induce on December 15, but instead he came on his own. At 36 wks and 2 days, he is a healthy 6lbs 11oz and 19 inches long.
We are so excited for Kevin and Karen, but these are one of those moments when it's really hard to be here. We keep saying, "I wish we were there right now." These are the moments where you want to celebrate with the people you are closest to. If you are in Raleigh, go visit the Bells, and give that baby a kiss for us!
