I need to rewind for a minute. I briefly mentioned it on the blog and on my twitters but last week was a pretty big deal for our family. My one brother and his wife welcomed a baby boy; my parents' first grandchild, another brother passed his dissertation defense and I wore wool, silver lace pants. Big things happened, I tell you...
The dissertation defense was scheduled months ago and went ahead as planned. It was my new nephew who decided to skip past his due date and cause havoc. My parents have been in Holland since the wedding waiting for their first grandchild to make his appearance and he. just. stayed. put. At the last minute my parents pushed their flight back home up a few days, my sister-in-law got induced and now my mom has become that person who shows you 53 pictures of a baby in one sitting. With their flights changed, my parents flew back to Canada last Tuesday and then went straight from Toronto airport to Grand Rapids, Michigan. They arrived in Grand Rapids at 3 a.m., just in time for the dissertation that same morning. It's a busy life when you have 5 kids, right Mom and Dad?
It was really cool to see my brother do his dissertation. I didn't understand a lot about his thesis topic but he looked sharp in his wedding suit and that got my approval. He also got his professors' approval and that got him a PhD to put behind of his name.
I hope to see my new nephew in the new year, I suspect he's probably as excited to meet me and my lace pants as I am to meet him. I'm wondering if holding him will turn me into that person who show you 53 pictures of a baby in one sitting too...?
