Today is someone's birthday!

And in our family, that someone is DB's newest (and fifth and very very probably last) grandchild. :-) She is a girl, 7 lbs., 19 inches and BEAUTIFUL beyond words. We zoomed up to the hospital after she was born this morning and got to spend most of the afternoon with her, her mommy and daddy and her big sister. We got home this evening and went out to a special dinner to celebrate this special birthday and my special sweetheart...the best grandfather in the world!

OK...so I had cheese and other semi-bad stuff tonight (no sugar dessert though!)...and the NEW YEARS CRACKDOWN restarts tomorrow. ;-) Part of me recognizes the tendency to use things as EXCUSES to satisfy my addictions. The other part is sick of being fat. I hope the second part wins and I plan to help it along...tomorrow.

Congratulations on the new baby!!! I gave birth to twins on Jan 2 07 - dead of winter, middle of a blizzard, welfare hospital, unheated operating room....but still one of my fondest memories. We are all back in action for the new year!
