Welcome to the World, Miss Casperson!

I have a new niece, born 12 July. Her name is, as yet, undecided, but despite her being premature, she's strong at 3 pounds, 10 ounces. My sister Sandra was induced about a month before her due date, on account of complications from her MS, and she sounds remarkably well.

There was talk of my sister Joanna also being induced today, but fortunately that did not happen. It's expected that within a week or so she'll be giving birth to a boy.

Once Joanna gives birth, I'll have 12 (we should have a word for nephews and nieces collectively)--5 nieces and 7 nephews. I've no idea how I'm going to manage Christmas.
