Our Little Man has Arrived!

I haven't updated in weeks.
School has kept us busy. and sick.
And then, two glorious weeks ago, we received an amazing blessing...
our sweet grandson.

Introducing:
Landry Augustus Weston
Born Sept. 29, 2010
5 lbs. 12 oz.
18" long




Isn't he stunning?!?!



So are his parents.
This picture shows just how tiny he is.

Sean called while Mr. C and I were at lunch that day to inform us that
Chloe's dr. had decided to induce her.
I came home, packed, farmed the kidlets out for the night
(Mr. C had a huge deadline the next day and was going to be working late),
and I left.
Landry was born 2 hours before I arrived in Evanston.
Bummer.
But he is beautiful and healthy and the most amazing little person I've ever met.

Chloe and Sean are FABULOUS parents.
I am so proud of them both.
They are naturals.


Also, the 2-year anniversary of my
breast reduction
is coming up in a couple of weeks.

I get a lot of questions about the surgery,
and my post-op life.
I also have people who are interested in having the surgery,
but are to embarassed to call and ask me questions.
So, I've decided to do an informational
blog post
answering any questions you may have.

You can post the questions in the comment section of this post,
or, if you are uncomfortable doing that,
email them to me at
I will be writing the post within the next week or so.
