when i woke up this morning, i knew it was going to be a good day. do you know WHY i knew it was going to be a good day?! i probably should make the answer a blog prize, but i'm just gonna tell you...today, september 1st, marks my first full year of working at MJC! isn't that just nutz? i bet most of you didn't even know i existed until around 4 months ago when i started this blog! so when i woke up and got dressed (i EVEN wore a dress today!), i knew i would be quietly (and sometimes, not so quietly) celebrating my MJC anniversary. now...little did i know that when i woke up today would bring so much more to celebrate!
MEET OLIVER DAVID SPITLER.
borns 9/1/09 at 1:30 in the morning.
way to blow my big day outta the water, sara! here i thought i was experiencing something special and then she goes and has a baby. a beautiful, healthy baby boy. really though, i'm happy to share my anniversary with him. honest engines i am :) i visited sara as soon as i got off work. well, as soon as i made a detour to walmart to get a card...and then as soon as i made a detour all the way to auburn because i missed the dupont exit (out of excitement, no doubt). almost as soon as i got there sara let me hold him. boy was i nervous. i don't think i've ever held a newborn, at least not one that i can remember...which doesn't sound like a good sign. but i think i did good. at least when i left he was still cooing and making bubbles with his spit. as nice as it was to meet oliver, it was soo nice to see sara. it feels weird not seeing her, like, everyday. i do not wanna get used to it, guys!!
on ANOTHER exciting, but not as exciting as oliver, note. today....
WE GOT OUR FRIDGE.
fancy, eh? we thought so. the anticipation for this fridge has been nutz. it truly is the small (i guess not SO small, but kinda small) things in life that make us smile (like oliver!). all of us at MJC have to thank our Beck-the-bride-Pence for it though, because she was the only one willing to sign miss denise's contract she so lovingly came up with in order to agree to this purchase..
alright, so the only way i can think to end this great day would be by having a BLOG CONTEST wooooo. yep. everything is exciting today. this is gonna be such a tricky one too. and i don't want more than 1 or 2 guesses per person PLEASE, just to be fair you know..
the question is..
HOW MUCH DID BABY OLIVER WEIGH WHEN HE WAS BORN?
good luck and gooooood night!
