    Default I wish I weren't overseas right now...

    My older sister just gave birth to her first child, a baby girl. It's funny because they've been expecting a boy this whole time and even had a boy's name picked out. Apparently the doctors suck at sonograms... I got a quick email from my dad via his cellphone just letting me know it went well, and I have no further details. Don't even know the kid's name...

    No good reason for this thread, I'm just kind of excited and wanted to share. I'm an uncle.

    Wow! That's cause for celebration!

    Does it make you feel old now that you're an uncle?

    OH! I'm so happy for you and your family! How exciting.

    Yeah, sonograms can be an inexact science. When my mother was pregnant with us, they read three heartbeats and saw three babies, though it was just Pink shooting around. My poor mother was about to faint at the idea of three babies, much less two.

    Awww!

    Congratulations, warrior!
    Don't feel bad about where you are. You'll be home and become a part of this kid's life soon enough, I hope

    Cheers, mate!

    P.S. I hope you are doing well over there. We want you back in one piece, see.

    Congratulations, Beat! That's really cool you have a niece. My nice is 15 now, and I remember when I went to the ER with her at age 2 because she had a fever so bad it couldn't be controlled at home.

    She is a really cool kid, I send her money and tell her to "spend on anything you want as long as it is not practical." and she is so sute, she sends me thank you notes that say "Uncle Alex, thank you for the money, I promise I spent it on stuff I wanted."

    I am really going to regret pulling the trigger of my .50 caliber sniper rifle on the tires of the kid's car that tries to not treat her right, ohhhh well, such is the price of being a good uncle...



    Cheers to you Bro! You're in for a special relationship, having a niece is cool!

    My uncles rocked the casbah and I bet you will too. Some of the absolute best things in life I have gotten from my uncles include:

    Stories about the war in 'Nam.
    Motorcycle rides (and popping wheelies when my Mom was out of site! /glee)
    Letting me drive the car in an empty lot when I was only 7.
    Learning how to change the oil in my car.
    Learning how to punch a boy in the kisser if he got fresh.
    Candy.
    Sleep-overs.
    Fun outings.
    The importance of drinking beer at the proper level of "chilled."



    When in doubt, buy her candy! Congrats Uncle Beat and take care.
