A Bang-Up Fourth

Mindy here. And yesterday I celebrated my best Fourth of July ever. While many folks spent the day outdoors, barbecuing, swimming, and the like, I was with my oldest daughter in labor and delivery, watching as my newest grandson took his first breath.

Let me introduce you to Elijah Cole. He's a cuddler, this little guy. And a bit skittish around bright lights. Our little firecracker wasn't quite as little as his mom would have preferred, though. Weighing in at nine pounds twelve ounces and measuring twenty-one and three quarter inches long, he captured the honor of biggest baby over his three brothers. Yeah, before long he'll be running circles around them.

Well, that's what I did on my July Fourth holiday. How did you spend yours?

Happy Tuesday, y'all.
