i now have a nephew. he was born last night. mom called this morning to let me know. it was expected...the doctors had been planning for a few weeks to induce my sister-in-law's (amber) labor yesterday. damien (my brother, for those of you who don't know) moved to tennessee shortly after high school (he graduated in '02), and now he's living in knoxville. mom and sammi are heading up there on friday afternoon as soon as sammi gets out of school...they would have gone up sooner, but this week is make-up for the days school was closed due to ivan, and if she missed she'd have to attend summer school. i would go with them, but they're staying for about a week, and i have to be at dauphin island tuesday to start my TA.
the last i heard, damien and amber were naming the baby dylan nathaniel (sounds kind of like damien nathaniel...but i guess they didn't want a damien, jr.). but they did call mom before the birth certificate was signed, so they may have changed their minds. anyway, everything is as it should be - a healthy baby boy, ten fingers, ten toes, 8 lbs 2 oz, 21" long...as soon as i get a picture, i'll post it.
aunt latina...i wonder if he'd be willing to call me aunt dr. latina ;) by the time he's talking very well i should have my phd...just give me a few years.
