2 weeks ago i was with russ and kristen having lunch....she was due to have their baby in 6 days...she's been having tightening in her stomach for a couple of days...no pain...after lunch they went home....she bent over to pick something up....and her water broke! so about a half hour later, they called and said they were going to the hospital! what a shock....she wasn't dilated, so they started her on pitosin at about 10 pm....figuring nothing would happen until the next morning...i went home to bed....but, at about 5:30 i got a text from russ saying that she was having the baby...after 15 minutes of pushing....out came sweet russell brucato mullin! he weighed in at 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 21 inches long....what a doll...he has dark hair...looks like kristen...such a sweet heart...they are adjusting easily to parenthood....it's so fun to watch them...I'm' so happy for them all....a darling new family!
