The Russian Child

My sister Rachel had a kid yesterday. Her second. Elena Rachel Delap. Very cool. Very Russian. Very Rachel. And very much already my favorite. Not because I've seen the little Russian child, but because she's a little Russian child. Me and little Lenichka are going to get along swimmingly. How could we not? We're both Russian.

I love this post. And little Elena doesn't even really cry that much - so far she's pretty calm and quiet...

I'm offended. Uncle Joe is no longer a name that will be spoken in our home.
Congratulations to Elena though!! A deserving favorite, no doubt.
