so tiny!

A big welcome to Planet Earth to my newest niece, born this week. She appears to be adorable, if understandably confused and tired. Being born is a rough transition, to a big cold world presumably less comfortable than the womb.

That leaves me as the only one of us who hasn't spawned. I already acquired a 6-year old the easy way, though--I skipped the diapers-and-colic phase! but missed him learning how to talk--so I'm not in a hurry.

  1. It was very cute--he started out with sign language, then moved on to the first syllable of many words. We thought that was all he could do until we visited Gigi and found out that in the presence of people who didn't know him well enough to fill in the gaps, he could manage even 3-syllable words. It wasn't long after that when he started on complex sentence structure.

    Besides, you get to be around for him learning how/when not to talk ;-)

    Yay new baby in the family!
