Be careful what you wish for. Seriously. I was talking to some friends about my sister-in-law’s pregnancy and I said “I wish Lizet would have the baby this weekend so I could come down and see it over the long weekend.” Well, that’s exactly what happened.
Thankfully everything went without a hitch for my favorite newbie parents. Although I only spent an hour with the baby, I have a feeling she’s going to be pretty low maintenance. She only fusses when we do things like change her diaper or adjust her blanket. When it’s all over, she lulls right back to sleep. She’s also a very heavy sleeper like her Obasan (that would be me — the Japanese word for Aunty). She slept like a rock while being passed among three relatives, all who cooed nonstop for almost an hour.
Here she is. 6 pounds 15 ounces, 19 inches long, full head of black hair, compulsory blue birthmark on her backside (proof of membership to the Mongolian race). Her name is Sienna Kira Young. Later on in the day, my brother asked me if seeing Sienna made me want to have a baby of my own. Nah, I don’t want a baby . . . I want THAT baby! She’s perfect!
