Let's catch up, shall we?
Eleanor Marian was born December 19, 2012 a week after I turned 40. I don't know why I point that out. Except that the day she was born, as I was being checked into the hospital, all the nurses kept saying happy birthday. And I was like, what??? Oh yeah.
She is darling. Hates the car. Quite a bit. However, we drove to Philadelphia yesterday (3 hours) for my nephew's baptism, and she did great. The twenty minute drive to take my husband his work badge this morning because he forgot it and he MUST have it (yes, it was that kind of Monday), not so great. Go figure.
Mara, my almost two year old, loves Ella. Quite a bit. I was worried about how she would deal with a new little person stealing some of her spotlight. Silly me. I look forward to my girlies growing in friendship.
I have an 18 year old now. That happened a month before I turned 40. That is all I have to say about that.
And this week her sister will be 17. Lord have mercy.
I have a new nephew (see above) AND a new niece. In a period of about 90 days, my parents welcomed 3 new grandchildren. Amazing. Yesterday, at my sister's house, we took a picture of ALL the grandchildren on the stairs. All 18. Wow. God is good.What else is there to say?
