As of Saturday afternoon, my brother and his wife are new parents. Presenting the Schmoop and the Schmoopette's new baby cousin:
Isn't she a beauty? We're all over the moon at my brother's new status as a father. He's nearly 40, and he's been waiting for fatherhood for more than a decade. He's a wonderful brother, loving uncle and, now, fantastic new father.
His wife is quite the superwoman. After more than 13 hours in labor, she had to have a C-section late Saturday afternoon but still managed to walk around by Saturday night.
The Schmoopette just looked at the photo and said: "My baby." and "Ssshhh. Baby durmiendo (sleeping)" And now she's singing "Twinkle, twinkle little baby. Twinkle, twinkle, little baby."
She's going to make one helluva an older cousin!
