Small Fry

Today I saw my niece for the first time. Well, she is really Julie's niece, not mine. The way I look at it, I don't consider in-law relationships to be "genuine" relatives. Like her uncle or aunt are not my uncle or aunt, etc., etc.

Anyway, she was born on the 18th and is just a tiny little thing. I tried to remember when Greg and Katie were that young and little but my gray cells have whitened.

Julie kept asking me, don't you think the baby looks like her brother? I just shrugged. No, I don't think she looks like anyone. All little babies like that look pretty much alike and just look like babies to me. I find women are much more interested in them than are men - well, at least me. The baby is definitely cute and all, but I am not one who can sit still watching a 20-minute video of a sleeping baby (At 14:56 of the video - "Oh see there? Did you see her eye twitch?").

What I thought was funny was in the baby's room they have a CD player set up playing soothing, tranquil music. Yet when everyone talks in Cantonese it is soooo loud! Haha.. doesn't make much sense to me. I think the baby will develop a high level of noise tolerance.
