On December 2nd, BAL’s Speciation Group Leader, Jacki Aitken, gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. Silas Porter Aitken was born at 10:30 am, weighing in at just over 9 pounds! Reports are he is a calm and happy baby who already knows how to pose for a photo. Congratulations to Jacki and her husband, Keven, on the new addition to their family from all of us at Brooks Applied Labs!
