Happy birthday, Jarrett!!

Though I have many (7 to be exact) other things to blog about, they are all second to this:

Haley and Jeff had their baby today!!

(If you don’t know, Haley is one of my very best friends, big sister, confidant, partner in crime, etc.)

As soon as I got the call at school, I begged for a sub and got the heck out of there.

After lots of hard work and pain (serious), Haley birthed the cutest little guy I’ve seen in a long time.

Jarrett James Watkins
7 lbs. 8 oz.
20 inches

I’ll have a picture tomorrow. You’re gonna be jealous that you aren’t that cute. I am.

I’m putting this in the same category as Ghana- it was such an amazing experience, so deep and beautiful and meaningful, that I honestly can’t even process it all. It would only mean more to me if it was me or one of my sisters, I think. Or Molly. She ties with Haley, only she’s a little more devious. I like that about her.

But speaking of Ghana, here’s my all-time favorite Ghana picture. To hold you over until you see the man Jarrett tomorrow.

Luke and I are awesome at being statues. I bet you can’t even pick us out of the group, can you?

    Are you the one in the middle with the yellow hat? If not, you’re right I can’t pick you out.
