There's a new kid in the only town America has cared about for the last 5 years: Waco, Texas—meet Crew Gaines.

> "Our baby boy, Crew Gaines, is here and we couldn’t be more in love. He made an unexpected (and speedy) entrance into the world two and a half weeks early - which is fitting given he was a sweet surprise from day one. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. We are so grateful."​

​I am literally so giddy over this that I have no idea where to start.

And yes, maybe that's a little bit of baby fever talking (I mean seriously—those lips! That hair! It hurts my insides, he is so cute.), but really it's a lot more than that.

Joanna Gaines is the literal definition of #goals, and the fact that she would absolutely disagree with that sentence solidifies the truth.

Sure, she has the most popular show on American television, so much money I can't even wrap my mind around a tiny Crew-sized portion of it, and a seemingly perfect relationship to a man who is absolutely crazy about her.

BUT, that's not why she is so incredible to the millions of women who have her atop their lady-crush lists.

It's because she is so real, we have no choice but to fall in love.

She's the woman who goes with the flow and isn't afraid to speak her mind. She is stronger than heck but would never put another person down. She doubts but exercises faith and works HARD. She is graceful, funny, opinionated, stubborn, beautiful, and...just good.

(Do these sound like wedding vows yet?)

I think I love her so much because she is vulnerable and unafraid of all that means—as a person, and a mom.

If you ask me, this entire Crew is a seriously lucky bunch.

Now, enjoy that baby, Joanna—we're all here cheering for you.

Last night I did what I ordinarily do around eleven o’clock. I shut down my laptop computer and put it away, then closed the book I was reading and set it on the lamp stand next to the sofa. I brought my water glass and my wine glass into the kitchen and put them in the dishwasher. While my husband went outside to smoke his last cigarette for the evening, I climbed the stairs and readied myself for bed.
