  36. Oh Lisa, I was on vacation in NC this weekend and was thinking about you, wondering if I'd return to news that the little man had arrived.

    SO happy for you :)

  37. 8lb 14oz? I bet Lisa is relieved she didn't have to push it out after all -- see sometimes it IS better to have a cesarean!

    I know you're probably wondering "What the hell just happened?!?" and "Why am I so cold and hungry?!?" but don't worry, your mom and dad got that and everything else covered.

    Lisa and Nick are interesting people so give them a chance, and I'm sure you'll love them as much as they love you.

  63. There are no words to express the width of the smile on my face, the lyrics of the song in my heart, or or the joy I feel for all of you.

    Welcome to the world, Jordan.
    Welcome to the next phase of parenthood, Nick and Lisa - I am told it lasts forever but is a helluva ride.
    Welcome to one more dose of the best part of parenting, Betty.

    I am sure that all of you will be great at your respective roles in this years long play.

    Welcome to the world, Jordan!! Such a beautiful name and so fitting!! You are now a part of the wonderful world of mommyhood!! Enjoy every second of it. Just remember... People will be giving you alot of advice and criticism. Don't get discouraged. Take the good from the advice and take the criticism at face value. Do your best and just enjoy your time with a newborn. It goes by so quickly. If you need any answers, I had a wonderful book called "The Baby Whisperer". I found it very useful in my first few years of babyhood. Enjoy Jordan, and feel the new found love in your life!! And don't forget... Ask for help when you are feeling overwhelmed. It's the hardest job you'll ever have, but also the most rewarding!! xoxoxoxoxo
