Avuncular

I'm an honorary uncle!

A friend of mine's first son was born this morning at 8:57 am. I was the best man when he got married last year. It's hard to talk about the kid without sounding either trite or cliched.

But he weighs 4 lbs, 15 ounces and has a scruffy head of brown hair and these deep blue eyes. And a mean kick. I got to hold him, and there really is nothing quite like a baby to make you melt.

I was lucky enough to be there. I was the only non-blood-related person there, and the mother's own sister is convinced I'm the father's brother. I didn't put forth the effort to disabuse her of the notion.

But, this is because of how close I am to the family (at least on the father's side) ... which also means I bet I'll end up on the babysitting list. Oddly enough, that's somehow pleasing. I did earn the label of "good with kids" from most people I know.

I certainly intend to have children in the future. Eventually. I'd like to think I'll make a good father. The truth will tell in the end.

It will also be nice tonight to NOT have to go to the hospital for sanity check purposes. I have to take a night for LAUNDRY purposes.
