After an 8 year dry spell, my family finally has a baby! She was born Sunday October 21 and her name is Cora. She's my first cousin once removed or second cousin (means the same). Hopefully, her birth will kick off an avalanche of babies.
I'm very pro-baby because as I was growing up, I had a new baby cousin every year. It didn't feel like a family function if there weren't babies. Sometimes, I got two baby cousins in the same year. 22 years of babies and non-stop baby-sitting opportunities then years of nothing. Seriously, the last time I baby-sat cousins was five years ago. Cora has blonde hair, the typical family block head look and pretty pink skin.
