10 fingers, 10 toes
I drove down to check in on my friends Heather and Ed to give a proper howdy to their new son John Wyatt, born just days ago on June 26th.
When Ed called at 6 in the morning that Tuesday, I didn’t think I could get there in time from Saugatuck. Turns out I could have flown from Hawaii and made it in with hours to spare.
It was a long, long day for them – and frankly, it was probably best I didn’t make it because the waiting would have made me a nervous wreck.
See, I’ve known Heather since 7th grade and she falls genuinely in that BFF category. So we’re stuck with each other whether we like it or not, and for the most part, it’s all good. I could recount the memories but man am I behind on journaling.
The important thing here is that she’s now a mom, the kid’s a champ, and I’m super happy for ’em.
