My sister Therese gave birth to a baby boy yesterday morning. His name is Dominic.
The gender of the baby was a surprise, but everyone was expecting a girl. Even my sister had this feeling that she was going to have a girl.
Well, they were wrong! She had a boy and I can’t be any happier. I always wished I’d had a brother to grow up with. And my poor dad with two girls. He’s probably more excited than any of us.
My parents are both down in LA with my sister and my brother-in-law right now. I wish I could be there, but I checked flights and it would have cost me almost $300 to fly down. If I go next Friday, it’ll cost me $100. So I’ll be there next weekend. I used the money I saved to get my sister and the baby a really cute welcome basket with these books targeted towards the ‘Einstein Baby.’ Totally cheesy, but hey, they seemed to have hooked me. Way to go Brand Managers!
I’m heart-broken I can’t be there, though. My mom was telling me how Dominic was happy when he was getting bathed in warm water. I swear, I was ready to jump on a plane when I heard that. He must be so cute. I can’t wait.
Pictures to be posted as soon as I see him!!!
