HOORAY!

My new niece is here! At exactly 9:00 a.m., my sister’s baby was born. She weighs 8 pounds, 11 ounces and is 20 1/2 inches long. Welcome, little one! (Oh, yeah, she does have a name, but being that I tend not to reveal those, let’s call her Sister’s #3 Girl. To keep her separate…

Early Wishes

So, in case I forget to do so later, I want…
