Latest addition to our family tree

My sister Catharine gave birth to her first baby yesterday morning. She had a wonderful home birth/water birth with 2 midwives, an assistant and my sister Anica as her personal doula.
He is amazingly adorable, and if he could have waited just one more day, he would have been born on my birthday.

Here I am holding my nephew Healey for the first time. I look as though I am ......

A) plotting to kidnap him...
B) Anticipating the flash to go off and didn't want him to deal with that so soon...
C) Thinking of eating him


(oh I am forty, but still feel like a 25 year old. What's up with that?)
