My Nephew!!!!!!

Clay was born yesterday at 7:22 p.m. He was a full pound lighter than Hannah, weighing in at 7.2 (she was 8.2), but he's much longer! I think Mom said he was 21 3/4 inches or something....Hannah was 19. So he's long and lean! I can't wait to meet him! I want to go today but...traveling with Hannah alone is just not fun, and we're heading back that way on Friday anyway because Amy's dad has graciously invited me spa day! Wahooooo!!! I'm joining the Richmond ladies at Tranquility in Hagerstown for facials, massages, and mani/pedis!! I've never been to spa day or had a massage so I'm super psyched!!! Plus it will be good QT with some of my favorite ladies, one of whom (Amy) is heading to Iraq in less than a week. Since I'm on maternity leave, she's been able to spend a good amount of time getting to know Hannah.

So Friday is spa-day and meet-my-nephew-day! What an awesome day.

We've been telling Hannah she has a cousin on the way. She's looking forward to being older than someone for a change.

  1. I'm sure cousins are a lot like siblings when they are that close in age. She will probably boss him around just like you did your little brother. At least until he gets big enough to beat her up . . . again, like your little brother. :-)

  2. And it doesn't seem like its been much time since you were having to acclimate yourself to a new role -- Mommy, and now you've got to add on Aunt. How does it feel?

  5. a weird rub! hahahah! i'll tell 'em to rough me up.

    adding aunt isn't nearly as stressful because i'm mom first. if i weren't, then maybe i'd be stressed about being a good auntie, but i'm too absorbed trying to be a good mommy to worry about that too much at this point, and I'm sure chip understands.

    oh, and yeah, i'm thinking if hannah is anything like her mom, she will def enjoy bossing her little cousin around :)

    i will pass along the congrats!!
