The year is already off to a promising start with enrollment in a cake decorating class (finally! my cakes might stop being
ugly rustic-looking!), a planned celebration for a friend in the hometown, and the birth of a brand new baby!
After an email early this morning announcing the baby girl’s (unexpectedly early!) birth, I made plans to swing by the hospital after work. The Boy, who has been moping at home the past two days, snuffling and unable to breathe (!), figured he would be doing everyone a service by keeping his germy self quarantined at home. So off I went to behold the new parents (sadly I didn’t think to get a picture of the proud new dad — sorry Mike!), many a visiting friend, a happy grandma but… no baby?
Eleyna was a titch on the wee side, so the hospital has her in a separate room, although they expect to move her into the room with Jen very soon. My timing was fortuitous, as I got to be Eleyna’s second (of two!) visitors and so I got to see her in person. As most newborns seem to, she seemed more interested in sleeping than anything else, so maybe in a few days or weeks, when The Boy has recovered, we’ll get the opportunity for another visit.
Congratulations Jen and Mike — we can’t wait to really meet little Eleyna!
