I am an Uncle!

Not just weird, Weird UNCLE!

You know how everyone has that weird uncle that they like even though he is at least 37% crazy. He is a little bit goofy, but people like to hang out with him for the most part and he is not afraid to do something ridiculous like start singing in a crowded theatre before the movie starts or start to make friends with telemarketers when they call and start asking them how their day is going and if they like banana malts? I have always felt like I would be a perfect candidate to be that weird uncle, because, let's face it. I'm a little weird, and at least 43% nuts. The only thing that was missing was the niece or nephew to make the weird uncle status complete. For the first thirty-two plus years of my life, that piece was missing...UNTIL TODAY!!

I am very pleased to announce that for the first time ever, I am officially a uncle! Jennifer's sister Julia gave birth to a 7 lb 3 oz little bundle of joy named Olivia Joy Molyboga this morning at 8:43 AM Central Standard Time. She was 20 and a half inches long, they say, and has a bunch of dark hair. I am extremely excited to meet her in a couple of weeks when I travel to Chicago, and will post pictures just as soon as I get some. I am also pleased because for the first time in my life, I'm not just weird, I'm a weird UNCLE! Congrats Marat and Julia, and welcome to the wonderful world of parenting.
