Baby Reese Elizabeth was born Wednesday, December 5th, at around 8:30 or so at night, weighing only 4 pounds and 14 ounces…although my sister had some early contractions just a few days before, we were all a little stunned when her water broke that afternoon. They had the baby a little under 5 hours later. She’s tiny, for sure, but as far as anyone can tell, she’s healthy and might even be going home today if everything checks out. It’s so exciting–I’m officially an AUNT now!
So there’s the update on that–I’m still in a little bit of shock–it happened so fast! I had just talked to Jenny that day (probably not long before her water actually broke) and she was feeling pretty good. She said the contractions had eased up a little…so yeah, everyone was pretty much taken by surprise. But, the baby’s here, she’s doing great…and now I’ve got to go out and get the kid some Christmas presents. 🙂
My dad, who had surgery on his heart just last week, got the job he’d interviewed for–DELIVERY MANAGER at the new Lowe’s back home. He’s retired military and did run his own delivery service a few years back so this should be right up his alley. He starts training next week.
I miss my family so much it makes me sick right now…but I can’t help but be insanely happy for all of them.
Well, that’s everything interesting in my world for right now. You all have a good weekend!
