i'm officially a great-aunt for the first time......


....as well as my daughter, michelle, while her brothers are now great-uncles! YAY!!!

it may sound complicated but really, it's not....long story short....MY younger brother married my first husband's daughter. This put my kids on the same relative status as me being that my brother's now ex-wife is the blood half-sister to MY kids. she and my brother had two daughters which made me and my kids aunts and uncles.
and yesterday (july 1st),
our niece gave birth to a baby boy.

meet tristan james who weighed in at 5 lb 11oz

he's adorable!!!

this also means that my parents are great-grandparents for the first time.
here they are with sarah and her beautiful baby

how blessed we are

love, light and peace

  15. thanks so much for all your wonderful comments ~ :)

    lisa and chocoholic - yes, it's quite a mix to get one's head around. lol it's not the first time something like this happened with our family. one year, my cousin (from my dad's side) came over from ireland to visit and when she met my uncle (from my mum's side), they fell in love and married. :)

  22. All that dark hair! Such a tiny, beautiful boy! Congratualtions! But I did get lost on the family lineage--but as long as you all know who's who--that's all that matters, right? Hehe! I've never been good at keeping all that first/second cousin thing right in my own family. And with all the marriages and divorces..whew! When anybody gets beyond the very basics I get lost. :) Babies are such a gift! Hope you get to see him often!
