My youngest sister had another kid today. That makes me an uncle for the 5th time! It was so odd, I've been meaning to call her cause I knew her date was getting close. So I called her this morning and she had just gone into labor and was on her way out the door to the hospital. Six hours later, and I've got another niece!

That makes 4 nieces and 1 nephew. The new kid has her work cut out for her, cause her older sister is the cutest thing on the planet (officially even - they did a government study). And her older brother is already feeling jealous over lost attention. When his mom asked him if he'd like a little brother or sister, he said "I'd rather have a puppy."

I'm just glad I get to be the uncle without having to be a parent. All the fun and none of the hassle. Yay!

Congrats. It's kind of sad to watch them grow up, though. I often forget my own age in a what feels like a static surrounding. I'm only reminded when I realize the change in the way I relate to them as they've themselves have gotten older.
