There's a brand new person on this earth tonight.
There's a brand new room in my heart, and very early this morning during a phone call that woke me from dreams he moved in, immediately deep-rooting himself in a space all his own. A space that will forever belong to him.
My beautiful nephew, Samuel Miller Murray was born this morning at 1:04 a.m. He came into the world quietly, without a cry and simply yawned, stretched, and snuggled up for breakfast. And a nice long nap.

I love you Samuel. I am so happy you are here. You couldn't have picked a better family to call your own. Your dad is my brother and best friend. I hope that you and your amazing big brother Jack will be best friends, too. I bet you will.
Happy Birthday. Welcome to your big, beautiful, magical life.
