my nephew Sir Booska Squeakerface came along. (Facts: Ivan William Thomas, born 1:13pm on March 14th, 2010; 8 lbs, 11 ounces, 23 1/4" long.) Everyone said that my views on children would change when it was my own. He is only my nephew, but I cannot even begin to express how much love I have for this little boy.
My poor sister had a rough go-round with him, and maybe the dramatics associated with his birth have added to my ridiculous obsession. (Facts: She had an emergency C-Section as a result of HELLP syndrome. Google it -- I had to.) She made it through and both mom & baby are doing well. All I want to do is hold him and kiss him and snuggle him all the live long day.
