Adventures in Baby Land

Allow me to introduce Katherine (Katie) and Marie. They are the twin daughters of my cousin* Jim and his partner Charles. Aren't they adorable?

Now. The girls were born a few weeks premature in Northern California. They hung out at the hospital for a while and are now ready to go home.

To upstate New York.

In a rented Winnebago.

I have a slight amount of disappointment that I was not invited on this trip to document what would surely become the next innerwebs sensation.

That's all I'm saying.

*cousin. Actually I think my grandfather and Jim's mother were cousins and the number of seconds, thirds, and twice removeds is beyond my reckoning capabilities and so, since we *are* Southern, we'll just let it go at cousin.

No, your grandfather was Jim's mother's uncle, Jim's great uncle. Jim's mother, your mother and me are 1st cousins, making you and Jim second cousins and Katy and Marie are now your second cousins once removed and they would be Danny's third cousins. Since Jim is my 1st cousin's son, he is my first cousin, once removed and Katy and Marie then become my 1st cousins, twice removed. It's really simple. ;~) xoxo Auntie Anon

Thank you Auntie D. You know it's that Yankee DNA that prevents me from keeping proper track of these things.

So beautiful! Mazel tov to Jim and Charles!

Yeah, that's definitely a Yankee (not to mention Yiddish) way of saying congratulations...
