“It’s a big deal…being born” –Greg Mandreger

July 22nd, 2007 by chrislovescatherine

Well, we had a visit from my “deer” friend Greg Mandreger and as I handed Savannah to him she promptly threw up on him, so Greg has the privilege of being the first person our little girl has thrown up on! It really made my day to see that! I am just glad it wasn’t me! He stayed and held little Savannah for over an hour, and we all had great fellowship together. During the course of conversation, Greg made the profound statement, “It’s a big deal…being born!” Well, we all got to laughing at the simplicity and truth of that statement. Catherine was trying so hard not to laugh because it hurt to much. In honor of Greg’s unselfish sacrifice to Savannah’s welcome, here is a picture…

It’s a big deal, being born!

We love you Greg!

It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born. This is not necessarily cause for alarm. The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money.
