Welcome Sylvia!

Here is my brand, spakin' new 2nd cousin, Sylvia, being held by her big sister Evelyn. Sylvia made her debut on the 10th. My cousin Lauren (mommy) is reportedly doing fine - really, we should ask that question in a week or so, we may get a different answer from her.

Sylvia and Eva are Kate & Sarah's first cousins once removed. I know this because after the parade of cousins the day after Christmas, my parents, brother, sister-in-law and husband (see? I can easily describe my relationship with all those people) had a discussion about it involving the dictionary and the drawing of schematics. I believe we've got it down now. So anyway, congratulations Lauren & Jay on the birth of Kate & Sarah's 1st cousin once removed!

It is easier to understand all that once removed stuff when you see it in a diagram.

Congratulations Lauren & Jay! Do we need to get some 'hand-me-downs' together?
