Michelle and Ken had their new baby yesterday. I talked to Ken, and mom and baby both seemed to be doing quite well.

Katelyn (I think that was the agreed-upon spelling)
9lbs, 6oz.

She has hair, not long like Tressa's was, though.

Congratulations! We're so excited to have another little baby join the family!

Happy Birthday to Michelle and Emma!

Yup, you're both a year older.

But Michelle has collected more years than you have Emma.



Anyways, both of you have a great day!
