Ok, so here's my nice pretty blog spot with.....uh...NOTHING on it. I had a wonderful spring break in Chicago, a couple art shows at school and I haven't posted squat yet. Well...that changes now...(why do I have a sense of anticipatory dissapointment much like when I make those New Years resolutions which quickly become forgotten)! As soon as I get a few minutes alone in front of my computer, I'll give you all something to read about! Maybe even a few pictures! Soon I promise!

Here's a little Costantini side fodder for the mean time. My beautiful cousin Bethany delivered her son Carter on Tuesday! Carter was born at 6:29 a.m. weighing 1 lb 15 oz and was 13 inches long! Everyone was quite concerned because Carter wasn't due until the end of July, but as of now he is holding his own in the NICU where he will remain until his due date. Bethany started having contractions thursday night & friday morning and was sent to the hospital where she was put on bed rest and on her back to try to stop the labor. At that point her immediate family was on spring break in Florida, so my mom, aunt Carol and myself drove out to Kzoo on Friday around 3pm to stay with Beth until her family flew in at 11pm. By the time we left they had her stabilized and she hadn't had a contraction for about 4 hours. She held out on her back bored and in pain for 4 more days before Carter decided he wasn't going to wait any longer! Images of baby Carter to come when I'm home on my personal computer!

ta ta!
