Just met my new great nephew.

Isn't it amazing that a completely new life can come into this world? Ben didn't exist four months ago, and now he's a distinct person with his own personality.

Since my nephew lives quite far from me, I just got a chance to meet the new baby this past week. And what a joy it was! Even more exciting, surprisingly, was to see my nephew, his dad, all grown up and a successful writer! Very strange to remember a person as a baby, and see him simultaneously as a functioning adult!

My nephew is getting married!

They grow up so quickly! I still have my nephew Dustin's baby pictures on the fridge, and now he's getting married! The exciting part of having a niece or nephew marry is you get GREAT nieces and nephews. Still, I wish I'd had more time with Dustin when he was growing up...
