I apologize to those of you who are not really close enough friends to care, but I just have to take a moment to gush and proliferate this on out to those who would want to know. Please witness my new nephew, Brixan Elijah, shown here with my beautiful sister and her husband. Brixan showed up yesterday at 5:50 EST weighing 7.9 pounds and everyone seems to be doing fine. Including Tessa, who wanted to know why there was a ball attached to her brother.

Oh, why can’t I disapparate to Tennessee?
