Happy Birthday, Claire!

>> Friday, January 6, 2006

I was already an uncle by marriage - Wendi's sister has three kids - but today I became an uncle on the Gratz side of the family!

Claire Elizabeth Gratz was born this morning at 8:45 a.m. She weighed in at 9 pounds, 6 ounces, and measured 20 inches. (We Gratzes like to grow 'em big.) Mother Laurie and daughter Claire are both doing well. The state of my brother John is unknown at this point.

It's still weird to think of John having a child. I mean, this is the guy I tricked into signing a contract making him my personal slave when I was in the fourth grade. (Unfortunately, the contract was later nullified in the Court of Mom.)

Congratulations to John and Laurie, and welcome to the world little Claire. Jo is already asking to play with you.
