I have a nephew!!!

Wesley John was born on Wednesday, May 28th at 6:03pm. He was just barely 7 pounds and 20 inches long. He has a full head of hair and big blue eyes, and he's a keeper!

I am an aunt!!

You should see my family with him! Kristin and Jason are positively beaming (proud parents!), my mom cannot get over how beautiful he is, my dad is proud as ever, and all of us aunts (5 sisters were visiting them at the hospital at once yesterday) are just in love! David and Peter are pumped, too! David's so tall (6 feet, 4 inches) and Wesley's so tiny :)

He's pretty much all I've been thinking about for the past couple of days, same as everyone I think!

Mom and baby are both doing well!

Yes, I realize

It's been so long. However... I don't have a computer at home right now, so blogging is on the backburner. For times like now, in the library. (This doesn't happen very often.)

An updated list of what's up, seeing as if I write about everything, it'll take way toooooo long.
  • No baby yet. She's getting anxious
  • HAPPY 20th BIRTHDAY (yesterday) to my dear sister Michelle!!! I wish I could've seen her yesterday to give her a big hug... but she's far, far away.
  • The WINGS are up in the series against Dallas 3 games to 1. Hopefully Saturday afternoon they'll be celebrating making it to the CUP Finals!
  • David, Kathleen, and Greta are done with high school!!!! Their last day of school was yesterday. I was subbing in the middle school, looking around, thinking that they should still be down there. They should still be 12, 13, 14. Not 18 and moving on to the big world of independence and college! Seriously, you don't pay too close attention for about two minutes, and wham! they're graduating. Congratulations!! (The big day is next week.)
  • Happy 3rd Anniversary to Jill and Ryan (on the 14th)!
  • Some friends and I are thinking about heading to Det for a Tigers game. Is it worth it though? Are they going to put it all together and dominate like they can some days? Or are they going to get a few base runners in the whole nine innings and not send a single one home? argh, is it worth it?
  • Kelly is halfway through Optometry school!!! In TWO short years, she's going to be an eye doctor! Way to go, Kelly! I know it hasn't been easy, but you're getting there!
  • Speaking of Kelly (not the same one), she was sick for 5 or 6 days there. :( So I went over there the other day to hang out with Addy (2 and a half) and help out. Nice help I am -- I was making dinner and started a fire. Twice. Good news, though! They were able to save the house. Just kidding -- the fires lasted for all of 10 seconds, and there was no damage (except to my self-confidence in cooking). So they DID save the house, but it never got past the stove top. Go, Karen.
  • My baby sis is going to be SEVENTEEN next week. And seeing as I get on here so often lately.... I think I better mention it now. HAPPY SEVENTEENTH BIRTHDAY JULES!!!!!!
  • Gotta go -- back to class!!
