I Am A Great Aunt!

My neice, Tweetums, has given birth to the first of the next generation.

Joshua Dale came into the world early Saturday evening. He has the correct number of all the requisite bits, all in the right places. His great-grandma, Dame Judi, reports that he has a shock of black hair (don't know where that came from) and a lusty cry. She also noted that he was "beautiful".

It is still hard to imagine Tweetums as a mother. It seems like just a couple of days ago I was holding her in my arms and trying to imagine my sister, Martha Stewart, as a mom. It's crazy I tell ya. Crazy good.

Well, just try to imagine what it feels like to have a grandmother for a daughter! Yikes.

But Joshua is truly beautfiul.


I wouldn't make that up.

Me, too, Sling. And I hope he'll think so.

Thanks, Leah. I will!

Aww, shucks, Iwanski.

Ain't it just, Caitlin? Ain't it just?

Not that you have any bias at all, DJ. And for the record, I think you are far too young to be the mother of a grandmother.

Thanks, MHP! Pretty cool, huh?

Me either, Mols. I'm going to kiss him all over his little head!
