Congratulations to my good friend Beth. She gave birth to a healthy baby boy sometime last night. Please don't get too excited about the picture of that baby over there. That's not him. I have no clue who that baby even is. I got him off of Google, and I think he might be of Asian decent.
Beth called last night around 8 o'clock to give me an update, and called again around 11 to let me know that the baby had been born. She woke me up from a dead sleep, and I wish you could have heard our conversation--it was awesome. She was totally groggy from pushing out a baby, and I was all groggy from sleeping. The phone rang and I knew it was Beth from the caller ID, so I picked it up and this is what happened:
Beth: I had the baby.
Me: Oh, that's good Beth.
Beth: Seven seven.
Me: Seven is a lucky number. Guess you have a lucky baby.
Beth: Yeah, and he was born in July of '07. That's another seven seven.
Me: Whoa. Very, very cool.
Beth: Ok, bye.
Me: What does he look like?
Beth: He's light. Light brown hair. You should see him.
Me: Yeah, I want to.
Beth: Ok. Bye.
-dial tone-When I woke up this morning I realized that I failed to find out a few of the details--like the child's name. Luckily I walked by Beth's house this morning and there was an "It's a Boy!" sign telling me everything that I needed to know, so here's the scoop...Caleb John weighed in at 7 pounds 7 ounces and is a perfectly proportioned 20.5" long. Most importantly, Beth and Caleb are both doing well.
