I'm an Uncle

Yay! I'm an Uncle!

Congratulations to my brother and sister-in-law! She gave birth to a healthy girl, 7 pounds 6oz. She looks kinda mushed up right now (the baby, not the mother), but is super cute with lots of hair and a ferocious appetite. Mum was in labour for 15 hours with no epidural. I don't know how she did it, but she did very well and looked great despite the long labour.

Obviously, I haven't had much time to post and likely will be absent for a bit more. Take care for now and I'll hopefully get a chance to catch up on your blogs soon.

Congratulations to you and your family! Being an uncle is one of the coolest things in the world...lots of fun without having to pay for braces and college. :) Let the spoiling begin. Here's a tip if this is your first neice or nephew, little kids LOVE noisy toys...the louder the better. But make sure they don't require batteries, because their parents will just remove them. :)
