big bouncy baby boy!


my brother and his wife
gave birth saturday night
to a healthy, happy
big and bouncy
black haired
baby boy!

hurrah!

this is their first and
i am so happy for them...
they are going to be fantastic parents!

i have been there for the birth of two of my brothers'
children...the main reason i go is not only to support
my sister in laws or to be there to welcome the baby
into the world but mostly...
i want to see my brothers hold their babies
for the first time...to see them transform from
my brother to a father...
to see that tenderness, the amazement, the wonder...
the pride and the quickly-brushed-away tears.

guess i don't need to rush on that pink and white blanket
though...
heehee

edited to say: check here for my sunday scribblings entry for week five
only if you are interested,of course, i'm not trying to be bossy, heh heh :)
