No time lately for a proper post. Maybe this weekend. Just had to stop in and say welcome to my new nephew, though! This is my first nephew and I have my brother and his sister in law, who have just joined the rest of us in the parenting arena, to thank. This little fellow is a native Texan, God help us!
He showed up a month early and tipping the scales at just under five pounds. His genetic destiny having been shaped by a thousand generations of milk maids, hewers of wood and drawers of water, he is likely to top out with another 200 pounds or so by the time he reaches middle age.
My brother and his wife haven't decided quite on a name. Something Ameri-Russo-Anglo-German, reflecting his little melting pot self, seems likely.
