One of these:
Well, ok, YOU will probably not get a little Charlie. But Courtney and Charlie Dey did!
A rather pregnant Courtney came over Friday night to help us make soft pretzels. The event almost did not happen, thanks to me ruining Lindon's first batch of dough by pre-heating the oven while the dough was in there rising (after he told me the dough was in there rising!) and spending a considerable amount of time moping about my stupidity for turning on the oven. Lindon succeeded in making a second batch of dough that I did not destroy, and he and Courtney made some of the best soft pretzels I have ever had while I was feeding Levi and could not actually help.
Early the next morning Lindon got a call from Charlie saying baby Charlie had been born - 5 weeks early!! The only logical conclusion is that our pretzels induce labor. Despite his unexpected arrival, baby C is perfectly healthy, albeit tiny. Lindon and I visited them in the hospital to admire him, and he is just darling. Now they are home and trying to wrap their heads around their new life with the addition that was due to enter the world 5 weeks from now.
I am so excited for this new one. I am excited that Levi has a new pal (one who now makes my kiddo look like a giant) and excited for what this means for the Dey family. It's also exciting to have some company on the crazy adventure that is motherhood.
