That's Life!

We start the day with happy news from the Pacific Northwest. Just after 2:00 this morning, The Wife's brother's wife gave birth to Eleanor (I'll fix the spelling if necessary - my father-in-law gave me the news over the phone). I will of course forever call my newest niece "Eleanor Rigby" (you lose points if you don't get that reference) but that's besides the point.

Mother (Gretchen) and baby are both fine. Eleanor weighed in at six pounds, seven ounces and was 19 inches long at birth. Happy dad (Michael) will be sending pictures along soon.

Congratulations to all - including The Son, who is no longer the baby of the family!

For the wife and I, that makes our 10th niece or nephew (for the record, it's six girls and four boys).
