sorry i’ve been somewhat lax on the blog lately.

combination of a not having much to say right now (not much happening on the weight loss front that’s worth writing about) and…well… i’ve been busy.

this is my brand-new (and first!) nephew: born friday night at 7 p.m., weighing in at 7 lbs, 14 ounces. i’m totally, completely, madly in love with him, and for someone who hasn’t been around a newborn in ages, the miracle of holding him in my arms (and the hellish day i experienced in an effort to see him) brought me to tears.

i pray a lot of things for this sweet boy – love, health, happiness, creativity, joy, success –  but mostly, that this is the one – and only – time in life that anyone cares what he weighs.

isn’t that a nice thought?
