I can't believe I forgot to tell you

That someone stole our car from the hospital parking garage while I was giving birth! On discharge day, Jeff went to get the car seat and bring it up to the room... and the car (and our new car seat!) was GONE. Of course we assumed Jeff was just sleep deprived and couldn't find the car, but after going through the entire garage with security, he realized it was true - someone in this world is scummy enough to actually steal a car from the hospital with a car seat in it. Luckily, Jeff's friend Karim and his wife just had a baby last week and he zoomed over to the hospital with his infant car seat to pick us up and take us home. The only problem? Our other car is a truck. Horrible timing, but we had JUST donated Jeff's old car the week prior to Edie's birth in order to consolidate our lives a little. Thankfully, my parents have loaned one of their cars to the cause so that we can shuttle ourselves to the pediatrician appointments, etc...

Just so this post isn't a total downer, here is yet another pic of Edie. This time sporting a hilarious shirt from Aunt Heidi in which a fortune teller predicts her future career.

Whoa. That is TOTALLY crappy. About the car. Not about the budding romance novelist. I think that's pretty apropos...

what happens now? are you insured for theft, or do you just have to buy a new car? since we didn't doa bakesale for Darrah's dress we should totally do one for your car.

I cannot believe that! Karma is going to smack the heck out of that creep and I cannot wait. Really sorry about this and would gladly shuttle you around town if I could.

That's about the worst thing I've heard in ages! Sorry you had to deal with that in the exciting moment you got discharged - not the best time to have such a thing happen!

bring's a whole new level to "Dude, Where's my car?"

Yes, horrible that they stole your car. I meant to tell you, my neighbor is selling her car if you go that way, we can chat if you want info. As for the picture, love it!
