Two days (and nine years) ago my sister had her first son. It was ten days after her own birthday and so she always refers to her eldest as her late birthday present. He’s good with his younger siblings and was upset on his only sister’s behalf when they learned that the twins were both boys (that girl has four brothers with no sisters on the horizon). He’s loyal and loving and a gentleman with their cat (and Sissy when they had her. Sissy was his first dog and she’s always glad when my nephew comes to visit, even if she’s still wary of the twins who love her ears and tail.)
So this week, I am grateful for my third nephew to join us almost a decade ago.
