After such a drought of girls being born into my family we have had two in a little less than a year. The newest one was just born on Tuesday. My brother and his wife chose not to find out if it was a boy or a girl before she was born. They already have three boys so it was pretty exciting to get a girl. The bad news, she lives in Alaska (a short 2168.31 miles including ferry). So when I will get to see her in person is up for debate. Her name is Shelayne. My brother warned us it would be a different name that we would have to get used to but he wouldn't tell us until she was born. I was actually expecting something a lot more off the wall than Shelyane. Here are some pictures of the sweet thing.
My brother: "Guess what I am holding?"
Me: "A new baby?!"
My brother: "A hamburger actually."
Me: "You are such a jerk!"
My brother: "Okay, a baby really and she is pretty cute."
Me: "It is a girl really?" (after eight years with only boys born I am a skeptic)
