Friday our family welcomed the newest addition weighing 7 pounds 6.9 ounces. Thunder and lightning filled the sky, and the sun came out just as Vivian Faith entered our lives. My sister-in-law is doing amazing and practically had no labor. Vivian did not even wait for the doctors to get in the room before she was delivered. Sounds like my kind of lady…knows what she wants when she wants it.
This weekend has been filled with trips to the hospital everyday to see her and my sibling-in-laws. There is nothing better than that newborn smell and hearing their little cries. I even was the first person to change her diaper other than the nurses (ooohh lucky me). Needless to say, I’m in love.
I can just see all the sleepovers and adventures Vivian will do with Ari and Kaia. I have very fond memories of playing with my cousins throughout the years…it makes me happy to think my girls will have that kind of bond with their cousins as well.
On a more personal note, I had a great 3 mile run tonight in the rain. I really think I’m going to be shaving a lot of minutes off my PR for the next half I run. Oh! and I think I might have talked Tim into letting me run the Leavenworth half in October (I found some Christmas money I forgot about when I did the mass clean).
