My cousin Melissa gave birth to a beautiful baby girl early yesterday morning. She was originally due December 27th. I know how it feels to watch one month turn into another, but I can't even imagine what it was like for Melissa to watch 2008 turn into 2009 (and just miss that tax deduction ;-) ). Anyway, she was born at 3:16am on January 2nd, weighing in at 8 pounds even and 20.5 inches long. And she's a cutie!
