My dear, beautiful friend Bernadette sent me an email early this morning. This is what it said:
JEN, DAVE AND BABY ARE DOING WELL.
6 LBS 7 OZ
HE’S NICE AND PINK AND HEALTHY!
HE OPENED HIS EYES AND LET OUT A PEEP.
PICTURES TO FOLLOW.
This is life, in all its richness and combinations and jouneys and tribulations and blessings. This new little boy, Carter, has given life to life. Creation to creation. Love to love. Peeps to peeps! And, of course, “snips and snails and puppy dog tails” to, well… everyone! He has brought great joy from the greatest sadness, and will sing of life and creation and love and angels. Most especially, his sister, Angel Caroline.
My heart is full of joy for Bernadette and Ed and for her entire family. It makes me feel like dancing! And singing!
Welcome, Baby Carter, to this wonderful, wonderful world. You arrive with love’s perfect harmony!
