That's Aunt Becky to you, sir. [May. 11th, 2008|12:06 pm]

Baby nephew has arrived! 6 lbs, 5 oz, 20.5 inches, all fingers and toes intact, full head of hair, and quite possibly a genius.

My poor, poor, not-quite-sister-in-law was in labor for, like, 3 days. We were up there Thursday night, Friday night, and most of the day Saturday. Adorable bit: since DJ didn't appear until about 2 am on Friday night/Saturday morning, he shares a birthday with his uncle.

Sadly, my teensiest family member has not been available for cuddling. He has some blockage or something in his little bitty nostril, and has been in the NICU on oxygen until it works itself out.

He is sooooo adorable, though! He looks just like my brother! He has this tiny dimple on his right cheek right where Greg does (and right where I do, for that matter). I'll post pictures when I have some digitally. He's totally rockin' the faux-hawk right now -- The Boy and I have discussed buying him the world's smallest Beckham jersey.

I'm so impressed with my brother. I think of him as mostly just a baby himself, and seeing him man up and take care of his girl and his baby has been amazing. He's so calm! He's so excited about being a daddy!

I will now pout about dearth of baby snuggles. Hopefully this is rectified soon.

Congrats! I think it's something special to see a guy love on his baby, and take good care of his partner, too.
