& HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Baby Taylor!
was a quiet day. Ashlyn and I stayed home. I got around to planting
some flowers that we gave out as part of Ann's shower favors in the
front yard. I pulled Ashlyn's mega-saucer out to the front yard so she
can enjoy the nice weather while I put six flowering plants into the
ground. After I finished and looked over the front yard, I was inspired
to re-do the whole front yard. But I'm getting way ahead of myself.
=P The rest of the afternoon was spent cleaning up around the house
and preparing for my trip up North.
nearly two weeks past her due-date, Grace finally had her baby girl
today! I was calling her all afternoon, completely oblivious that she
was in the hospital. Aric called to share the wonderful news around
wasn't allowed back into the maternity ward. The only kids allowed were
siblings or children over the age of 16. I don't know why that is, but
I suspect it has to do with germs and such. Aric and Ed stayed with
Ashlyn in the waiting room while Sue and I hung out with Grace and the
baby. Sue and I took turns holding Taylor while Grace rested. Taylor
is so tiny!...even at a whopping 9 and a half pounds! It was hard to
imagine that Ashlyn was even smaller! Aric and I do want another lil'
one someday...but as I held Taylor, I began having thoughts of wanting
another baby NOW. Of course it was just a fleeting thought.
Patrick stopped by to pick up a computer and stuck around to chat a bit. Before I knew it, it was really really late...and I haven't even started packing yet! *yikes!* Better get a move on!
