Sorry I’ve been absent from the blog this week, but I have a good reason! :)

My niece was born on Tuesday, May 1! 7 pounds, 7 ounces, full head of hair (of course), ten fingers and ten toes. She’s the first niece and first grandchild on our side of the family. My parents and I have been in Nashville all week, and even got to be present for the homecoming since my sister and the baby were released so quickly. Debra had to have an emergency C-section, but was a champ throughout and continues to be so. I’m in awe of her, and of Lance, who is already a wonderful dad.

All the good pictures were taken my my brother and/or Lance’s mom, so I might share a few of those when I get them. I’ve been asked not to use my niece’s name on this blog, but I haven’t come up with the perfect alias yet. I’m leaning toward the obvious Niecy. It is a legitimate name these days. :)

Whatever we call her, I’m crazy about her already, and so happy and thankful that I get to be a special part of her life!

    She’s so pretty! I think Niecy is adorable!

    Good for them for not sharing her real name in a public online spot. I have no regrets keeping OT anonymous on Twitter!
