Just call me Hant.

I'm a Hant! It's a half aunt. See, I have no 100% whole brothers or sisters, but I do have 2 half brothers and 2 half sisters. So that makes me a Hant when one of them has a kid, rather than an Aunt. Clever, huh? I thought so too.

So I'm now cool Hant Kristie! And I'm a Hant to a little man named Chase. Chase was born really really early and weighed only 2.5lbs. Other than being a tiny wee one, he's doing well. Wanna see his picture? Of course you do. Here he is in all his tiny baby glory...


I blurred part of the photo because his wee parts are all hanging out like he's tough litte guy. Which he is. Tough as nails, that one.
Unfortunetly he doesn't live here in Texas (even though I think that would wonderful), so I'm going to visit him and his momma. I leave for St. Louis tomorrow afternoon and I'll be there until Sunday evening.
I can't even tell you what a pain it was to redo my work schedule and all my appointments that I have for those days I'll be gone. But I just know it will be worth it. Even though I won't get to hold Chase, I'll get to see him in person. And THAT is really exciting.

You're a fantastic hant. Every little kiddo would be lucky to have someone like you.
