Thanks be to God.
Beatriz was born in Lisbon, Portugal yesterday, Wednesday, November 28. She is well and so is her mama, my elder nephew's wife. She is their second child and first girl -- my brother's first granddaughter and my parents' first great-granddaughter. It's a momentous event for her big brother, who is no longer the only child (he's almost five years old), but apparently he is delighted in these first days.
Great-Aunt Jane here is happy for everyone, and tickled that we have a new girl in the family: the last time was over half a century ago when Great-Aunt Jane was born. We were due! Welcome to the world, little Beatriz. We'll try to take care of it so that you have a safe place to grow.
