Understanding my feelings at this moment
Now is when I start to grasp the feeling of what this
Could feel like, this new member to the family, the newest
Love of our lives. What an amazing feeling this is to
Everyone around us. Here is the newest
|The newest Bolek - my awesome (yet to be named) nephew|
Bolek to the world, probably not
Ready for the craziness of the family, but
I know that this child will be brought into
A world of immense love. The Boleks and Zipsies
Now have a true bloodline. Brought to us from Jeff & Amber's love.
I still can't process what this title means. I cried the moment I read the text around the 1am mark of today from my sister that said that we would be the proud uncle/aunt of our brother and sister-in-law's baby very shortly. (welcome to 2013 as far as news alerts go!)
And yes, I squeezed one last workout in before the news was official, as I had to see if I broke the 200 pound barrier as part of my goal to reach 199.9 or lower by the time I became an uncle (I didn't - but that's ok). I will break that 200 barrier when he is a few weeks old. Never mind that - I'm an uncle!
For a man who usually has a thousand words to say on a subject, being an uncle has made me speechless. It's truly a humbling experience that makes me smile from ear to ear. Just to say the words Uncle Brian have to pale in comparison to what Jeff and Amber are thinking as they process the days ahead where they will be called "Dad" and "Mom" (or some baby offshoot of that) in about a year or so.
I can't wait to have a beer (or if he's like my brother, a Squirt) with him and watch football with him (or if he's like my brother, watch him run around like a spaz).
I can't wait to teach him on why the Niners will cover the 6.5 point spread this week.
But most importantly, I can't wait to see the little guy grow up.
Congrats to my brother and his lovely wife on their new baby boy. The boy has broken the streak of girls being born on my mom's side of the family. The last boy born? My brother almost 28 years ago, of course. Since then, from my sister to my youngest cousin, there were six girls born in a row (a span of almost 24 years).
I can't wait to see this little bundle of joy later today.
Uncle Brian. Awesome.
