Please join me in celebrating the birth of my first nephew, Gabriel James. He was born on June 17th (Father’s Day) at 6:21 AM, 6 lbs 7 oz, born 6 lbs 7 oz, 19″ long. I am an uncle!!!
The day before his birth, we were at the Sons of Italy function for his baby shower. I jokingly thought to myself that my sister-in-law was ready to “pop” at any moment and amazingly her water broke there. It was amazing that she carried on like nothing happened and most of the guests were unaware. She gutted it out and sat in a chair and opened all of the gifts!
It was kind of funny that Tary was starting to get a little frantic while my sister-in-law remained fairly calm through it all. After the baby shower was over, my sister-in-law called her doctor and was told to go to the hospital. I quickly installed the base for the new car seat that we bought them and they were on their way. The following morning they finally got to meet their baby boy! What a wonderful Father’s Day gift for my brother!
One interesting fact is Gabriel was born at 38 weeks just like my two boys. It must a Trinh family thing!
(Wow, I am really behind on my posts but better late than never. It’s good to have them for archival reasons.)
