I can't believe how absurdly excited I am to make the following announcement:
I am a great aunt!
My nephew and his wife have a baby girl, Ansley Grace Jones. They almost lost her a few months ago, and Becky has been in hospital ever since. Last night Ansley was born, weighing 3 lbs 3 oz and screaming like a champ apparently. She must have the Jones lungs (my maiden name). All seems to be well, although she IS a preemie so she'll be in hospital for a while.
You know, it doesn't make me feel old, instead I feel younger! My mom, a great-grandmother for the first time, said the same thing.
I can't believe my nephew is a Daddy. There's only 8 years between us. But I still think of him as a boy, you know?
Congrats, Matt and Becky!
