well, there he is! my new nephew! my folks are so wiped from the experience that all the info is coming in kinda jumbled, but here’s what i’ve got from dad:
“Ginny and Jay Rosebery have a healthy baby boy! James Franklin III arrived around 11:30 last night (our time). Mother is resting, Rosie, too! James’ lungs are a little weak. The hospital staff is keeping a special eye on him, but he’s expected to be just fine. The catch weighed in at 7 lbs, 3 oz. At 20 inches, he’s a keeper! More later…”
now, lest you think i was withholding info from you, know that, though i got a call last night saying that little james had entered this world, i didn’t get that email… i got that off of the family website because, in his haste to get to work on time in his sleep deprived state, dad left me off of the email. no hard feelings, dad… really…
it’s hard to be bitter when i still got to see a picture of my newborn nephew. YAY!!!
if you’re the type, please keep ginny, jay and little james in your prayers. thanks!
today my sister is going to have a son. i just spoke with her. she’s in the hospital hooked up to a million beeping machines. her husband, my mother and her mother-in-law are there with her. she’s tired. she’s ready. she’s in a pretty chipper mood, all things considered. i’m so excited for her. my baby sister is having a baby!
i inherited a niece when i got married. i’ll have a nephew today. in december i’ll have another neice or nephew… i guess it’s time to grow up and be an adult, huh? that’s not scary… that’s really really exciting.
the fact that it’s exciting is a little scary though…
i love you little sis – i’m praying for you all day long!
