Guess What?

Friday, May 30th, 2008

Hello, Laura’s friends. :) Gramma Momma here with the news Darren gave me yesterday. I haven’t gotten to talk to Laura yet, but she and Carly Annalise Taryn are doing just fine. Here are the stats:

  • Birth time and date: 7:45p.m. on 5/29/2008
  • Birth weight: 6 pounds, 12 ounces
  • Birth length: 19 inches

I hesitated to post, since I haven’t gotten to talk to Laura yet, but I know she wants you all to know that everything is AOK. Thanks for all the love you show my girl!

Here is a factoid for you: Laura weighed 6 pounds 5 ounces and was 20 inches long at birth. As you know, she is a twin, so I think that’s fairly large for a twinny. :)

I haven’t seen any pics of Carly yet. Maybe Darren will put some up? (Hint, hint)

Dear Life According to Laura readers,

Laura’s computer is being obstreperous, or maybe it’s her internet connection that’s not cooperating tonight. She has a great post in mind for you all, which you’ll get to see tomorrow, I hope. This is Laura’s mom a.k.a. GrammaMomma, guest posting for Laura tonight.

How would you like to see some cute pictures of baby Laura? Here are a few I pulled from the family photo albums and scanned for your enjoyment:

Left to right: Sarah and Laura, a couple months old (I’m not sure. :P )

This photo was taken at Rick’s dad and mom’s place in Inverness, California. Laura on the left, and Sarah. Laura still makes that face. :)

Rick with Sarah and Laura. Sarah had the little pink birth mark on her cheek for a while, which came in handy when the girls were really young and looked more alike.

(Laura has this set up to sign her name, if you wonder why this post is signed by her. I don’t want to mess with it, Laura, so you can change it if you want.)

Dad and Debra are being way too busy in the office, and Dad keeps whistling, very shrilly, so, Laura, this is the end of this post. I’ll post the other photos I scanned tonight some other time when your computer isn’t working properly. Love you, Mom.
