Hooray for Nephews!
Well, a nephew at least. In the singular sense. My younger sister Sandra gave birth to a healthy new baby boy this morning (does that make him a newphew? I think it does!). Deklin Martin was brough into the world in the hospital in Orilla, Ontario, not too far outside of Huntsville, the town that she and her husband, Don, and their daughter Audra call home. It wasn't an easy nine months for my sister but from all accounts (I've yet to see a picture of the little tyke myself but I trust my grandmother implicitly) it was worth it. He's supposedly pretty cute. Always happy to have an addition to the family, and the prospect of educating, enlightening, and maybe corrupting a nephew the way my good uncle did for me makes me smile. I'm also very happy that my only sister is doing well.
