Here I am slinking back to my blog. Grand announcement — I’m blogging again — then nothin’. Sigh. Are we surprised?
So what has prompted my re-return? I have a new niece – Breanna Grace May was born Sunday, January 6th at 4:20am, weighing 7lbs. 13oz. (just shy of our Christmas turkey, incidentally), and measuring 20.5 inches. I haven’t met her, but I am assured she is adorable. I hope to meet her tonight.
It’s an amazing thing meeting a brand new person for the first time. Made all the more amazing in this case by the fact that this new person is family — we share genetic material and will, I hope and pray, share a number of wonderful moments over the course of her life. I’ve always said that becoming an aunt is the best thing I’ve ever done; though now I think I need to modify it to say the second best thing I’ve done to leave room for that whole getting married thing — best not to make hubby upset; and third best if we are including committing to God — sigh, it’s in the top five anyway, in any case, I highly recommend it.
