I would be remiss if I didn't mention the new little nugget Nancy and Ed welcomed in to the world last week (it was a big week in our house). The second act following the almost incomparable HRR; weighing in at 7 lbs. 2 ozs and 20 3/4" long: miss MGR. 

When Nancy initially told me she was pregnant, I hoped it was a girl (I'd like to believe I knew the sex from the get-go b/c everything seems so definitive in retrospect). Don't get me wrong: I have some awesome nephews; but there was something about the promise of another little girl... I envisioned tea cups and tutus and slumber parties. I wanted the notion of that for my daughter and her little cousin. Who knows how they will actually turn out, perhaps they will be tomboys preferring motorcycles to Mystery Date but for the time being I am going to envision them as fast girly friends.

I explained to miss M that she was handing off the baton. She is not the littlest gal on the block anymore. My gosh, she's a toddler already. She can show MGR how it's all done. Just as M watches HRR with curious eyes and awe, I hope she in turn shows MGR the things she has discovered along the way.

I think she's excited (who doesn't love spending time with a cousin).

MGR: we welcome you! You are beautiful! Learn to be funny and use the brains in your head. Remember, you will always be loved by many.
