I have a beautiful new niece!

I'm in Flagstaff, AZ (it only took me 28 1/2 hours to get here ... The details of the break-down in the middle of the desert by myself: It was a 'wait hours for a tow truck to take me to a middle of nowhere repair shop, where warranty people take an hour to approve the repair and then it's too late to fix that day, so I rent the only rental car in town, a big non-4-wheel-drive truck, then continue on my journey through very bad, icy, snowy weather, have to stop at another middle of nowhere town, stay in motel, and get hot chocolate' type of journey) ... By the end it was more than worth it because when I arrived I saw my new one day old niece, and she is spectacular! I will have lots of pictures when I get home. She is a perfect little being (she weighed in at 5 pounds 9 ounces) ... I can't believe that I'm leaving in 8 days! I feel like I have so much to do ... I hope my journey home is less eventful :) I'm helping to watch my nephew, Darrigan, so I'll write when I get home ...
