It’s official!

I graduated! Granted, I could have graduated much earlier, but if I had I wouldn’t share my graduation day with the birthday of my newest nephew (born at the U of U hospital…our rival).

For those who don’t know the story, this little guy surprised us all by coming 4 weeks early! My sister and her husband and 2 kids were moving to Minnesota from California when her water broke in Winnemucca, Nevada! It was a bit of a frantic day for us all, but they made it to SLC and she delivered safely early the next morning. 6 lb 4 oz, 19 inches long! Besides being a bit yellow he’s perfectly healthy. It was so fun to all be there (my mom, my pregnant twin sister with our other sister on the phone, and the baby’s dad of course) when the kid popped out and we discovered he was a he! He got down to around 5 lbs 12 oz so I’m going to have a tiny little peanut to photograph when I get back to Utah in a couple of days! Stay tuned for lots and lots of pictures.

Unfortunately, due to not sleeping the night before, I fell asleep plenty of times during my own graduation, but hey, I graduated!

And no, he still doesn’t have a name. Update. His name is Max.

Welcome to the world little man!

    All right, this picture is better than you riding the cougar by the stadium. And that comment about your twin's kids mistaking you fro her just reminded me of the time we thought you were taking sexy self portraits our freshman year. We all thought you were rather racy that day.

    Haha! I actually had 2 sisters who were pregnant, but my twin isn’t due until June :). I’m sure there will be plenty of those pictures soon though!!
