Me: playing as a toddler in London’s Hyd

I’m an uncle!

I’m an uncle! My sister bcat1 and her husband spacechicken have had their twins! (I have to say, spacechicken got off easy. Next pregnancy, attempted induction, and C-section, he can have the babies!)

Rider was born at about 11:50 today at 4lbs. 12oz., and Genesis was born around noon at 4lbs. 5oz. (I don’t know whether she was named after the book of the Bible or the rock group.) Mother and babies are recovering apace, and as you would expect bcat1 is wiped out. She’s still in the hospital, and is likely to be for a few days; Rider and Genesis will probably be there for a bit longer.

I got the news in a phone call just now from my mother silverlibre; she and ka9sqb are very excited about being grandparents. She’s probably going to fly out to North Carolina soon to spend some time helping, with ka9sqb following. (I wish I were in a position to be able to travel, but hopefully later in the sprint or summer. plumtreeblossom and I can’t wait to meet the babies!)
