At the risk of being perceived as ignorant, unfeeling and the worst aunt in the world, I would like to say that my first nephew is adorable. But I can't, it's nothing against the work of Captain and Leslie, I just don't think newborns are cute. I'm sorry, but you wouldn't want me to lie about it would you? Harvey will recover from it tolerably well, though Leslie might not be so forgiving.
Once when I was younger I remember asking my folks if I was a cute baby. My mom said I was the cutest little thing. My dad said I was all purple and ugly. I'd like to believe my mom since my dad is known to exaggerate the truth but I'm sure this time was the rare occasion that honesty superseded.
And so I present the first boy and grandchild on the Smith side of the family:
Harvey Gene Smith
8 lbs 3 oz
Hi Harvey! Wakey, wakey
The proud grandpa's (my dad is the one not holding the baby)
Congrats to Captain and Leslie!
and please forgive me...
PS: You may wonder why you don't see a picture of the proud Papa. My brother is in the National Guard and at this time is in basic training. I don't even think he knows he has a son yet...can't wait for him to get that letter.
