My husband and I have entered a new phase in life, we're grandparents! Our daughter and her husband welcomed their first-born, Jackson Ryder into this world on December 31st. Jackson was born on his mom's birthday, but hold on, there's more. December 31st was also Jackson's Great, Great Grandfathers birthday as well as a nephew, making him the fourth family member to have a New Years Eve birthday. I was able to spend 2 weeks with the new little family at their NC home...an experience that definitely goes into the "life changing" journal.
