There is my grandson! His name is Owen and he was 8 lbs, 5 oz. That picture was taken from Mr. Laurann's cell phone. Babies are sooooooo sweet! He got the 'elf' ears. When my oldest was born... she had a pointed ear like an elf. It was so darn cute and she passed it down to her baby! I feel soooo blessed to be a grandma! I can't wait until they need me to babysit. Of course I don't feel old enough to be one. I'm 39 years old but I feel about ten years younger... probably from chasing after my VERY ACTIVE 5 year old son. My other younger children are 7 and 11. My son is convinced no matter what we tell him that he's a brother instead of an uncle. He wants to play with the baby and is picking out toys to share. Good news - he wants to share which doesn't happen often without an argument or two.... Bad news - the stuff he wants to share would scare the baby. He wants to share his fight bots. For Christmas he got 2 remote control 'robots' that fight and if you hit them just right with the other one.... the top of their heads fly off. LOL!!! They are fun but yeah... I bet they would scare a baby with their bright colors and loud noises.
Anyway... I just wanted to share a picture! Everything is going great at home. I'm dieting. OH... I HATE to diet. I have to lose that last 25 pounds before my 40th birthday in June. That's my goal. I saved my old jeans if you can believe it... and I want to get back into them. I haven't been a size 6 in... eight years since I had my 3rd child, closely followed by my 4th... then had a bunch of medical problems that have now cleared up so yeah... I saved my favorite jeans, refusing to get rid of them... determined to one day to fit back into them. LOL. In December of 2008 I was a size 20 at my heaviest but then I lost 30 pounds so now I'm now a size 12. I am short so 25 pounds is more like 45 pounds to look at me so if I lose the 25... I should drop back into that size 6. LOL. I swear the older you get, the harder it is to lose weight.
Have a great week and if I hear ANYTHING on the book front... I'll let you know. I'm waiting to hear on a release date really soon... maybe tomorrow... we'll see!
