The Baby!

I'm an aunt again! My nephew was born Thursday, June 11th, at 4:56 A.M. He weighed in at 7.9 lbs, and measured 20 inches. Mommy and baby are both doing well.

I can't imagine how bright the world must seem to him after spending his whole life in the dark!

All clean and bundled up.

A family.

My sister and I with our boys. Not a great picture, but we'll try again in a few years.

All in all, I'm glad I went on the trip, although most of my visit was when my sister was still in the hospital. She wanted me in the room during delivery, so I wasn't able to stay long enough to be much help to her once she got home. The delivery wasn't gross like I thought it was going to be. I've been told that my delivery with BB was a bloodbath, so I wasn't sure what to expect.
If you happen to think about my sister and her husband, please pray for them. Being a new parent isn't easy for anyone, and they have some additional obstacles in their way.
