For Memory's Sake

This was the email Ray sent out right after Levin was born.  I'm cleaning out my email inbox today, and sometimes a blog is a good place to store things.  Pretty soon I'll be scanning my receipts and storing them here as well.

Hi all-

Cali and I wanted to send out a quick picture of our new son! We are still deliberating on names.

He was born at Tues 1:40pm at 8lbs 11oz and 21 in long.

Cali did great and is doing very well and we expect to be here at the hospital until Wed afternoon when we can go home.

We'll send another email later but wanted to get the word out.

We love you all and are excited to be parents.

Ray, Cali and Little Champ Follett

It's hard to believe seven months can grow a baby into a BABY. I loved getting that e-mail from Ray. I loved seeing the look in his eyes when I walked into the hospital room and he was holding and looking at Levin. It was pure joy and admiration and excitement.

(p.s. I would love to see your receipts. I remember going shopping with you when you were a teenager and dreading the wait for you to try things on again and again and again, and deliberate and deliberate and deliberate because your money was only going to go so far. I would read my WinCo receipts and be perfecting content as you tried and retried.)

I'm so glad you blog. I get so excited to see one in my reader.
