My Nephew Is Here!

Greyson Charles Edward Lastname was born on Saturday November 21st at 3:10 in the morning (EST). He weighed 8 pounds 5 ounces and was 21.75 inches long! From talking to my brother-in-law I guess he has really long fingers (just like my sister does) and big feet. He was born with a full head of dark hair.

I am so overjoyed that he is a healthy baby. I wish my sister didn't have such an icky labor though. She ended up needing a c-section after pushing for over 6 hours. He was sunny side up and his head was too big to fit through the canal (sign of a really big brain perhaps?). I hope my sister is able to get some rest over the next few days. She is in the hospital for a couple of more days.

I am feeling a lot of mixed emotions. I am so happy for their new family but at the same time, it pains me that I won't get to meet him until May. Being 3000 miles away makes it so hard. I was looking at the pictures of him today and had a hard time not crying because not only is he the most precious, beautiful baby I have ever seen, but because my sister and her husband look so amazingly happy and at peace. I wish I could be there to meet him!

Seeing pictures of that sweet baby remind me that I am going to be a mommy in the next couple of months. Of course, my baby won't be nearly as cute as Greyson! It's hard to top a baby that looks exactly like my sister and brother did when they were born!
