I'm an aunt! He's an uncle!

I interrupt the regularly wedding-focused talk to make a big announcement...

We recently welcomed our first nephew into the world.

Brendan Andrew
August 27, 2007
1:04 a.m.
7 lbs., 10.5 oz.
21 inches long

Isn't he so damn adorable?? He looks a lot bigger than he actually is. As you can see from his weight, he's pretty average, but he just looks so lean and tough! When we were in the hospital on Monday, we nicknamed him Hercules. It had only been about 12 hours since he had been born, but he had already been through a lot.

Unfortunately, Brendan was not born without complications! Both he and his mommy ended up in ICU because he was born by emergency c-section. As a result, we rushed down to Binghamton to be with them. I won't go into all the details, but Monday was a pretty scary day, worrying about Brendan and Melissa--we were praying everyone would be OK. Luckily, things are looking up--way up--and hopefully they will both be home together soon.

Anyway, I'm definitely a proud aunt. I was lucky enough to get to visit him in ICU a few times, but I can't WAIT to go and hold him!

Signing off with another photo of him looking adorable... this was after they removed him from the warming bed and just put him in a normal bassinette. In this pic, he's still in ICU, but he's looking mighty cozy!

Being an aunt is so fun! Hope they both can go home soon.
