Happy Birthday

My dear friend Christy is a mama again and I am thrilled for her!

Maya Lynn made her grand debut at 1:41 this afternoon and weighed in at 7 lbs 8 oz and is 20 inches long. She apparently looks like a replica of her big sister and has a feisty personality to match.

Chris was involved in a hit and run accident at 14 weeks and has been having contractions EVER SINCE. She has been in constant pain and has more than her fair share of health problems but she is tougher than nails and was determined to get this little one here safe and sound. And for that, my dear, we are all grateful.

Welcome to the fold, little one. You are in for quite a ride!

And remember, Auntie K is the best of all the aunties...

How scary! I was in an accident when I was about that far along with Emily. So glad everything turned out okay!
