I have a nephew! Isn’t he beautiful?
Laura gave birth to Monroe Albert (named for our dad) yesterday morning. He was 7 pounds and 6 ounces and I don’t know how many inches long.
He is a total dreamboat. I could have held him all day.
And I can’t tell you how much I am IN AWE of my sister, who was informed (at 5+ cm dilated) that she would not be able to have an epidural because of a low blood platelet count or something like that. I just can’t even imagine how it would feel to have the tables turned on you so dramatically at the very last minute. She is a warrior, indeed.
Here are the beaming new parents, with lovely little Monroe:
And here I am, one smitten auntie:
Congratulations to my little sis and her sweet family! We’re over the moon!
More photos coming soon …
