Meet the new man in my life:
That's my nephew, Elias, about an hour old in the photo. He was born just before noon, weighing in at just a hair over 7 pounds and 20 inches long. He definitely looks like the rest of the family, but his coloring appears fairer.
My sister looked lovely as ever... and boy, were his brothers and cousins excited to meet Elias! We are all thrilled he is here and he is healthy. Oh, and, once again, the boys outnumber the girls in the grandkid count on my side of the family.
