Congrats! Can't wait to see you and the new addition. Try to get some sleep in the hospital because we all know it's not gonna happen once you're home!

Payton is a cutie! I love all that curly hair. I can't wait to see more of her when she comes home.
Collette, you don't even look like you just had a kid! If I looked that good afterwards, maybe I would have allowed there to be pictures.
Congrats and give that little girl lots of kisses for us.
