Q: I've noticed that five of my uploads have " Hot" in front of the caption. Why are they caterogized that way ?

A: Do you know?

July 9, 2010 was sad and yet joyous day. Phoenix came into the world at 8 lbs 14 oz. and 20 inches long. We had to walk down a hall that had bad memories from 18 months ago when Baby Jay was still born. We cried and went past it into the future. But some memories will always be there. My son and wife are going to be the best parents and I'm going to be the grandma that spoils my grandson rotten!
