Julia Christine arrived a month early
June 25, 2014
Grampa and Gramma sent this shirt from Custer!

Julia Christine was born a month early to surprise Doug and Sara and big brother RJ.  Sara called at 8 a.m.(EDT) to tell us about the new baby--we were on Mountain time in South Dakota. (can you figure it out?)  I sent the t-shirts from Custer, but Julia's looks more like a dress--she was only 5# 10 oz.
