I got home last night around midnight and checked my caller ID. Joe and Carly had both called, and both at about quarter of eleven.
I called Joe's cell. No answer. Then I called Carly. "I don't want to tell you anything," she said. "Joe was trying to reach you." Two seconds into our conversation, he came up on my call waiting and I clicked over. Truth be told, I was already crying.
He was, too. "Red. Seven pounds, nine ounces."
My friend Melissa had a baby yesterday at 10:20 PM, nine days after her due date, God love her.
She's beautiful, clearly brilliant, and already has an adoring fan base. Welcome to the planet, Olivia.
