Kirk and Kate welcomed Elliott into the world at the end of January . . . a fact that delights the newly dubbed big brother, Max. I spent part of a very cold afternoon last week in the warm and comfortable home of this growing family. There was some jumping on the bed, some reading, some tickling, and some relaxed napping on a cozy sheepskin. A good day to be indoors in the company of loved ones. Especially the newest of loved ones.
