Yesterday at 4:25 AM we became new relatives in a special way to a little baby for the 13th time. There are 8 nieces and nephews from my three brothers, 2 step-nieces, 1 great-nephew and one niece from S's side - that makes this little guy lucky number 13 for me and S. The 13th time we've become aunt and uncle.
Andrew Dean, son of S's brother Michael and sister-in-law Brooke, made his way to this world weighing 7 pounds, 9 ounces and 20.5 inches long. Mama is doing fine too. They're resting and getting to know one another.
Since S is still sick, I rode over to the hospital with S's parents to say hello and take a little gift. S had to get by on photos of his new nephew for now.
Let me just say I think he was one of the most vocal babies I've seen at approximately 10 hours old. He's got good lungs. Brooke was trying to nurse him while we were there, so we didn't get to see much of him, and when we did see him, he was good and mad. Red crinkly little mad baby face. But, it's still a sweet, soft newborn face, and I got a few good shots.
