I’m going to be an uncle!

I actually found out about this over Christmas, but as per custom the news was kept within the family until after the first trimester. Rebecca is due at the beginning of August, which gives me several months to sew the cloth diapers I promised. She expects the baby just a few weeks before my brother’s wedding, so it should be an eventful summer. This is the first child of its generation on either side of my family, so everyone’s pretty excited. The kid is going to get lots of attention. I’m sure it’ll be a cutie (but then, aren’t they all…)

As you can see from this letter, Jindi’s been gaining sympathy pounds to make Rebecca feel better. I’m guessing he won’t be able to keep up, though.
