Abel Frederick Rae

Abel made his way into the world on Halloween night, in the midst of stormy Bellingham weather. As many people know we had planned a home birth but Abel had other plans. After laboring overnight at home we transferred to St. Joe's, where eventually we delivered Abel via cesarean section at 5pm.

We stayed at the hospital until Tuesday night when we finally got to come home and Abel met all of the critters! Francis has been edged out of the bed and isn't impressed, Angus seems pretty oblivious and Maddie is very interested in Abel and seems to know he will be dropping food on the floor soon and that she should stay close!

We would like to thank all of our friends and family that have feed us, walked Maddie, cleaned the house and in general made us feel loved and supported. While we were well cared for and had amazing nurses at the hospital it was great to come home to delicious homemade dinners after too many hospital meals. We feel incredibly lucky to be surrounded by so many amazing people.

We can't wait for everyone to meet Abel! We're sure you'll adore him as much as we already do.
