Now, before you get too excited, this is not a pregnancy announcement. But now that I’ve said that, I would like to spread the news that Aimee and Kristian are having a…GIRL!!!! And that my dearest cousin Emily had a baby boy last week…Brenden (or is it Brendan? I’ll have to check) Myles. 9 pounds 15 ounces. He was so big, his shoulders got stuck coming out…and he was born by c-section. Hahaha… It’s so unbelievable that we both have children that we’ve never met. (Did that pronoun usage confuse you? Just follow along, slowly.)
But today I finally ordered The Girl. You know, The Girl With a Pearl Earring. And they shipped it today, blessings be upon them. So she should be here SOON, hanging on the fireplace, casting her charm. Now there will be five of us living here, contributing to the daily excitement of life. So when sending Christmas presents this year, please remember that there are FIVE of us now.
Man, she’s beautiful.
