i was hi tailin' it to montgomery to be there for the birth of my "niece" JoAnna Lane Chandler. whew, what a week that was! now, i didn't mean to leave yall hangin, but see, here's the deal. i was the DP (designated photographer) for this little shin dig, so i had no pictures from my camera to offer. so i have had to wait 10 days to give yall an update on the tiniest little angel i have ever held! yall, i was there for her first breath and it was absolutely precious!! i didn't even get to see my own kids take their first breaths b/c they were behind a sheet! monica was such a trooper. i am so stinkin proud of her!! she did awesome! JoAnna was born at 35 weeks and 4 days, so just over a month early. and she had absolutely no problems. (i don't count jaundice b/c if you ask me, every baby gets "the jaundice".) her daddy is a little proud, too. she weighed 5 lbs 5 oz and was 19 inches. monica says she is eating like a champ!! they are all doing really well. she doesn't have internet at home right now, so i may update her blog for her. you can leave her some love here, though. (and as a ps--please understand that i tend to be an OCD blogger and i prefer to post my edited pics, but picnik and i are in a major fight right now, so understand that this is
my monica's angel in all her naturally beautiful untouched glory!!
