I'm an auntie!

Yeah hooray!  I am an auntie!

Baby Cole came early, so as to make sure I get to spend much quality time with him when home in Portland for Christmas.  I had told Nicholas I was prepared to take Jen for long walks to make sure he came before my vacation was over, and now he'll be an old pro in this chilly winter world.

Cole Xavier Ford was born 11:55 pm, December 11th.  He was 7 lbs. 3oz., 21 1/2 " long.  I can't wait to hold him myself, but I have heard that Grandma and Grandpa got to cuddle with him, and I think he is in Nick's arms in the picture.  I was tickled to talk to Nick yesterday afternoon after a hearty nap.  Jen, what a trooper, was only in labor 5 hours! 

Blessed are we!
