Another baby in the family! =o)

My cousin Jessie (Her real name's Yesenia, but we call her Jessie) just had a baby boy on June 25th!!!! Now this is a HUGE deal because she already has THREE girls. I never thought I'd live to see the day where they'd have a boy! I mean with three girls already: "I don't think that the parents would think that they'd stand a chance." So this is great gift for them. Especially Norby (the father). I mean he must be BEYOND ESTATIC. What man wouldn't be after three girls...? Don't get me wrong girls are great but so are boys.

He was born at nine o' clock (something) at night. And he weighed in at 8lbs 6 ounces and 21 1/2 inches long (so I heard).

[And he looks like his daddy. Which I assumed he would.]

Sucks though because we can't see him considering the fact that they live in Florida. But when the baby get's a bit older I hope she comes over here, so we can see him. Which of course she will because he has grandparents over here that want to see him (my cousin that live downstairs from us and our landlord, haha).

OH and of course I can't forget to mention his name. They named him, "Jeremiah." From his name is of, "Hebrew" origin and it means "God will uplift." I don't know if they gave him a middle name. And I think they'll be calling him "Jeremy" for short. Because everyone's got a nickname.

Before Jeremiah there was: "Gyanna, Natalie and Emily (with three older sisters and a mom, so four women in the house, I don't think he'll have any trouble understanding women LOL)." Gyanna's turning 11 in August, Natalie turns 9 in Febuary and Emily just turned 7 on June 8th. So that's two June birthday's for them. I wonder how Emily's taking it, now that she's not the youngest anymore? Hehe. She is such a doll!

I had heard though that Jeremiah may have a heart murmer. When I first saw the picture, I thought what's that thing on his chest, I hope nothing's wrong. Someone had said something that his heartbeat was a bit too fast. But if he indeed does have a heart mumer I know he'll do fine. And usually the hole closes up.

"May he be happy & HEALTHY. Always."

(*Jeremiah is my 4th cousin. I know some people don't think that past a second cousin it's family but I do. Jessie's mother Betsy is my 2nd cousin, making Jessie my 3rd cousin and her children my fourth. But I consider them all family. Even if we're not close. No matter what anyone says.*)
