It's been a hard day --one of the toughest I can remember.

I have a new nephew, though, and I will be driving to Kentucky to see him this weekend.  I will drive, and I will sing, and at the end of it I will have full arms of kids who request that their birthday presents be waived this year, and to visit me instead.

I will have sore arms from lifting and a sore place where my heart used to be because this boy, here, has stolen it away.

Leif Gabriel --8 lbs, 2 oz.  Every inch, perfect.

So goes for his big brother.

I need to get home.

gorgeous! So glad you got to visit. I bet everyone else was too, even this newborn, though he doesn't exactly know it yet.
