I’ve got one hour. One hour before the entire year of 2014 is in the history books.

I feel like such a BAD GRANDMA! How can Nora be 3 1/2 weeks old already and I haven’t shared her with the world? I figured I better include her in 2014 or one day she’ll be reading about the year she was born and there would be nothing mentioned about her. You see, as I’ve said before, I began this blog with the intent of having a “journal” for my kids to read one day. I’ve never been very good about keeping a written journal but if I can sit here and hammer out my thoughts on the keyboard, I seem to be able to get more written than I would any other way. So, I have one hour to have the last best event that happened to the Z Crew in 2014 added to our book. I print each of my blogging years so one day, maybe even Eli and Nora will want to read about the silly ‘ole lady they called Grandma (or Gah! – as Eli calls me).  Callie says he’s obsessed with me. I just smile cause I know it’s just a grand kid/grandma sort of relationship. And…it’s a good thing!

So…Nora Grace arrived in this world on Friday night December 5 at 8:55. She weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 20″ long. Jamie just had her at the dr recently and she weighed over 10 lbs. I’d say things are going quite well.

IMG_0524It took a while for Eli to figure out that he’s supposed to LOVE this little creature – not hate her for ruining his life. (picture credit goes to Auntie Taylor)
