as you all probably know, I recently acquired a new nephew (as in, he was born. I didn't buy him off amazon gosh guys)! I cannot believe that he's nearly two months old now, like, what the even heck. how on earth does time fly that fast?? anyway! he was born in a bedroom just down the hall from where I'm sitting right now and it happened faster than you could say jimminy cricket, with the midwife (who is the most wonderful midwife on this planet) getting here just on time. my sister had four hours of contractions (compared to the thirty hours with her first baby, adelaide) and then boom! israel atticus was there! I was lucky enough to be able to film the birth for beth (wish I could show you all, but it's a personal video!), even though there is a slight gap in the video because I was helping deliver le baby, but honestly I don't even remember picking up the camera a lot of the time, but according to the footage, I guess I must've! guys. my sister is superwoman. you all know I'm not mushy or sentimental or emotional, but she was so amazing and brave and calm and the fact that me + her were chatting an hour after the birth (and also eating barbeque crackers) like normal was surreal. yeah. she's the most crazy amazing person ever.
don't forget to welcome little israel atticus (isn't his name superbly fantastic?) to the world! and also, offer him your condolences for being born into the most bonkers, crazy, outrageous family in the history of ever.
love you all!
