I'm an uncle!

Congrats to my sister- and brother-in-law and baby Abigail (not to be confused with my brother and sister-in-law, whose baby should make me an uncle twice over within the next week or so). These are our relatives who followed us out here to Colorado about a year after we'd come, so we were already able to spend a while at the hospital this evening visiting with them. The sight of a crying baby seemed to make my son less sure he's ready to be a big brother though...

Elizabeth did pretty good when William arrived, but we bribed her a bit with presents. I know sometimes William keeps her awake at night when he cries, but he's doing better at sleeping through the night now, so it isn't so bad.

And congrats (and future congrats) to the new babies in the family!

Thanks! I think he's starting to get used to it--that'll be the nice thing, having a cousin so close in age to his sister (we think), he'll have a few months to better prepare him for what to expect.
