liv it up

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.

Congratulations! Kids are so cool... and I find it funny how the first description of a newborn always includes the weight and usually the length, just like a trophy fish.

"Ayup, landed me a nine pounder! She was THIS big!"
