I'm fairly sure this is not my news to report, but I can't help it. GRACE EMILY was born today to my amazing friends Amanda and Dan. Grace is 7 lbs 10 oz and, though I have not seen her picture yet,* I am sure she's gorgeous. Dan says she "seems long."
I got the phone call as I was walking into an eyebrow waxing appointment at Bliss. Dan literally called as I was supposed to be checking in, so when I got off the phone with him, I went through the salon doors and yelled "I'm sorry I'm late! My best friend just had a baby!" And, I am not even kidding, the woman behind the desk did not crack a smile. She just handed me a sheet of paper and said, "Go back that way, take a left and wait." I could immediately tell that her heart had somehow been replaced with kidney stones, but even she could not ruin the glow of knowing there is a beautiful healthy baby in Chicago, with her beautiful healthy parents and I get to meet her next weekend!
