Thank heaven for little girls

I can't even describe the miracle of Makayla's birth.  Watching my sister go from hardcore party child to Makayla's mama in a matter of several seconds was unbelievable.  Not to mention the sheer miracle that is the birth of a child.

My niece, Makayla Jewel Anthony, was born Friday, 10/12/2007 at 6:55 pm.  7 lbs, 13 oz and 20 inches of complete perfection, I didn't know I could love a baby like I love this kid...and she's not even mine.  She looks like both Amber and Jesse, but her attitude is all Harold.

Mom and Miss Makayla both came home from the hospital yesterday, and both are doing fine :-)  Thank you to everyone who has called, come by, stopped by the hospital or otherwise gone out of your way to make Miss Makayla's birthday special.

Still no baby.  I am so ready for my niece to be here. Michayla...HURRY UP and GET HERE!  The doctor is going to induce Amber a week from today if we don't have a mini-munchkin by then.

Alden...WAR DAMN EAGLE!!  Engineering will never be the same again.

My head hurts.  I am so f-ing tired of the b.s. going on right now.

In other news, I'm running (with JW) in the Cherry Blossom run in April. He's training for the marathon (I think), and I'm going to attempt the 10K. It's the first serious competitve event that I've trained for since high school, so I'm kind of excited about it.  Not to mention it's a trip to D.C. and a chance to see some friends I haven't seen in a hot minute *cough Chris cough Anneliese cough Brady* while we're there.

Dove shoot last weekend---SO much fun.  Dove shoot this weekend--possibly even more fun. I am so incredibly lucky to surround myself with the people that I do.

I started writing again last week.  It's not to publicly share, but I'm pretty pleased with how things are shaping up.

This is all over the place...I need caffeeeeeeine. 

There is actually a book called the Biography of the Moonpie.  Nicole, I don't know why, but it reminded me of you.  Irritatingly, it doesn't mention Mardi Gras?

Some days you're the windshield, some days you're the bug.  I think I'm the bug these days.

Nappy time yet?

I miss my godson. (his parents aren't half-bad, either.)  I need to go to FWB ASAP.

Right-o.  Decisions, decisions. 
Much love from a very jumbled Fruitcake.
