My Baby Had a Baby!

When I was 11 years old I scored my first babysitting gig (at home under my mom's supervision, of course) with the Wilson family for their first baby, Tabitha Casey.  Over the next several years, I pretty much became a member of the Wilson family and Tab and I became more like sisters than anything else.  We spent long weekends together while her parents played softball tournaments, we spent summers together while her mom was at work, we went to swim team practice for Tab and t-ball practice for her little brother Zach.  We had dance parties to Carman songs (Zach still knows "Who's in the House?!"), played Mary and Joseph with towels on our heads, and ate countless cans of ravioli.  Somehow along the way we grew up and the baby I once was cuddling on my living room couch became a grown-up married lady having a baby of her own...
It was very special for me to be able to visit Tab and Brigham in the hospital.  He is just as sweet a baby as his mommy was...
I feel kind of like a grandma...

Welcome to the world, Briggs!  I have a whole house-full of people who are just going to love you!
