It's a Girl

After a fun & sleepless night, my dear friend Sarah and her husband Mark welcomed a new baby girl into their family. She keeps being referred to as a "peanut" according to Mom & Dad since she weighs only 5 lbs. 10 oz. Her name is Megan Merie and she couldn't be more beautiful, healthy, or content. I was so honored to "labor" with them and was amazed to witness this miracle of birth. I have to say though, after such a long night - I thought it would take more than two pushes! Hopefully, the happy family is resting and looking forward to all the family & friends that will be visiting and for their 3 year old son to meet the little person that is about to ROCK his world. :)

Hey I just looked in my calendar...and if I am not mistaken, I do believe you celebrated a birthday today!! I hope that you had a great day...I would tell you the card and present are in the mail, but that would be a lie!! I did find a card in Abbey's cedar chest that you sent on her birthday, it brought tears to my eyes!!

Thanks for remembering my B-day. The big 3-4 ... heading down the slippery slope to 40. :(

Hey Laurie! Happy birthday a little late! I hope you lived it up! Thanks for leaving comments on my blog! FYI, the "mother of three" was my 15 year old cousin. Hopefully, she didn't read that! :) Yes, I had some tech difficulties...I didn't mean to have that pic on my profile. :) Take care and remember you are only as old as you feel!
