It's a girl!

I have a new niece!

Well, sort of.

To be completely accurate, my daughter has a new cousin who was born today in Portland.

Does that make me an uncle? To be honest, I don't know.

My daughter's mother and I never married, and so the mother of new "Baby I" was never officially my sister in-law. Well, for that matter my daughter doesn't call me dad either, she calls me by my first name.

But anyway.

So, I don't know if I "legally" have a new niece or not, but I do, so that's that. And I'll be seeing her this weekend.

Welcome to the world "Baby I." I'm sorry it's such a mess for your arrival. Us grownups aren't the tidiest housekeepers in that regard. But we'll really glad you are here.

The reports I'm receiving via text messaging is that Mom and Baby are fine. I got the report that labor had begun shortly before 11 a.m. today. When I called after work, the newest member of the family had still not made her entrance. But she made her grand entrance shortly before 7 p.m.

Congratulations Mom and Dad and Big Sis.

Wow, that is great news! Take it from this aunt, it's not about blood or a marriage certificate, it is about love and family.

Why didn't you tell me when we talked last night? So, I was a little preoccupied with my life, but you should of just told me to shut up!

You will be a great uncle, you have an amazing heart.
