New Life

Yesterday was one of the top ten best days of my life - I was lucky enough to get to witness a beautiful baby make her entrance into the world.

Remember Skinny Bitch? Yesterday she gave birth to little 'President' (coming up with fun names for everyone is a true test of my brain power - those of you who know baby's real name should get a little chuckle at her 'blog name') at 11:45am. President was 7 pounds 3 ounces and 19 1/2 inches long. After teasing her mom with false labor all weekend, by yesterday morning President decided she was really going to make her entrance and she did NOT screw around. Skinny Bitch and Dunham got to the hospital at 8:30, I got there at 9 and then not even three hours later they had a baby! And Skinny Bitch is a trooper - no drugs at all and she never ONCE screamed obscenities at Dunham even though he was the one that knocked her up. She is a better woman than I am.

Here is beautiful little President, all clean and completely exhausted from her birth day ordeal.

And here she is being held by her big brother. I was there when he was born almost ten years ago - another one of the top ten best days of my life!

And here are the proud parents with their beautiful daughter.

I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends. I was honored that she wanted me there to support her during her labor and delivery and it was truly a magical day. Watching a baby enter the world is a reminder that life is precious and fragile and needs to be cherished. THAT is what's important, not all the little nagging details of life that I tend to get wrapped up in.

Welcome to the world little President, you are loved to the moon and back!
