It’s a Boy

Just heard from my father that I am an uncle again. My younger brother Rick and his wife just had a baby boy. His name is Quin Ulrich Brayton. Don’t congratulate me, I had nothing to do with it. But I think it’s pretty cool.

    Ulrich? Is your brother a Metallica fan?

    /Honestly the first thing that popped into my mind
    //Congrats to your bro!

    Congradulate? I was going to express my sympathy for when they drop off the kiddies to go on their second honeymoon.

    But seriously, best wishes all around.

    So does that mean whenever we address you in the comments from now on we can call you Uncle Ed? Or better yet, Uncie Ed?

    Congratulations! Uncle-hood is preferred to parenthood. 🙂

    Considering I have about 25 nieces and nephews already, this one doesn’t really change much. I am the only one in my generation of the immediate family who has not reproduced. The father of perhaps the most adorable one comments here regularly as Treban.
