In Which I'm An Uncle Again

My nephew was born early this morning, after 32 hours of labor. I haven't gotten a chance to see him yet, but from what I've heard from my (very excited and happily crying) mother, both my sister and the baby are doing just fine.

My younger sister was induced late in the evening on Monday, but things progressed very slowly leading up to the actual birth. The Boss and I were at the hospital until late last night, hoping he'd come while we were there. We left around midnight, and got the call that he had finally arrived just before 7am.

His name is Clayton, and I'll post a picture of him as soon as I get one to share.


The Boss and I went to the Fryeburg Fair on Monday. Anyone who lives in the New England area has probably heard of this fair. It's a pretty big event for this region, with people coming from states away to be a part of it. It's your typical fair, with tons of vendors and food booths and rides and games.

We happened to go on the second day of the fair, so it was jam packed. I didn't get to take as many pictures as I wanted, but I did manage to snap a few.

On the drive home, we happened on this large field with a rainbow hanging perfectly above it.

All in all, it was a pretty good day.

Have a good day, folks.

Congrats on being an uncle again.

Just think, you get to spoil and have fun with your nephew, then give him back to your parents.

Aunt Juicebox said...

Awesome snapshots as usual, Badass. And congrats to your sister!

Lola said...

Welcome to the world, Clayton! Congrats to everyone involved ;)

I love the Fryeburg Fair, grew up going to that one. We haven't been in a few years, but I'm sure it's still a good time.

My Husband's b-day today, too. As a person married to a Libran male born in the year of the Ox, I can predict this little person will be sentimental, sincere, humorous, and an all-around stand-up guy.
Hooray for a good day in the life of the BadAss Geek- finally!

Badass Geek said...

Sandy: I thought so, too.

Alan: Thanks, dude!

MommyGeek: Thanks!

Moonspun: It really is a good time. They need to spread out a bit, though. It's too crowded.

Toy With Me: It sure is.

Kat: He is a cute kid.

Jade: Thank you. =)

Amy: Would you believe that was taken with my camera phone?

Nej: I'm curious to know what the other 7.8 million reasons are.

Organic Meatbag: Thanks, man!

The Good Cook: I like the name, too.

Rebecca Knight: Being an uncle is pretty rockin',

Employee No 3699: You know? I think he was.

Nel: Pictures are coming!

Mwa: Cool, indeed.

Little Ms Blogger: I'm totally looking forward to that part.

Aunt Juicebox: Thanks, and thanks!

Aunt Becky: Thanks, dude!

Chibi Jeebs: Thank you!

WOS: I grew up hearing about this fair, but never went until last year for the first time. It's pretty neat.

Lola: It sure is a good time.

Lucy Cooper: If he's anything like his father, (who is all those things you mentioned) he sure will be.

Ohmygosh, that cow picture is ridiculous. She looks so sweet, with her little horns, and I wanna take her home!!

Also, man, the rainbow, the New England country side, and the impending fiery fall. THANKS FOR MAKING ME NOSTALGIC, AGAIN.

Bee and Rose said...
