Today was a very special day. Today, my little brother, became a dad again. I became an uncle for a second time. With just those few words, "It's a girl." from my brother I couldn't help but feel proud and envious at the same time. She's such a beautiful baby and when I held her I knew I held her for someone else other than myself. We didn't always see eye to eye and there were moments I said things I'd cut my tongue out to take back. Those things are done and can never be undone but I do what I can to atone for them in my own ways. I'll never lie about the woman she was, as I knew her, because that's what made me love her as well contemn her. The one thing my mom wanted, before she passed away, was to hold a baby girl in her arms. So many opportunities for forgiveness stolen from us by something as stupid as a car accident. Wounds left open to fester. Wounds I can't stop picking at over and over again. But when I held little Marian in my arms... My brother is a lucky man.
Congratulations Mike. Mom would be happy to see "her men" still standing together as a family with a place for her in our hearts still.
Xiamara and her baby girl should be coming home tomorrow evening. I can't wait to see the baby again and hold her. It's been so long since I held a baby. Man, do I miss it. The diaper rashes, the teething, the constant crying. I'd have to be crazy to want another baby. Then I remember him falling asleep on my chest or hearing that full belly laugh only a baby can do. I know I have a lot more of those "little moments" ahead of me, but I want more. Don't even get me started on brotherhood. I'll get even sappier on ya. Single children will never know what their missing and for them I feel sad.
