You can call me Uncle Jimmy...

Dec 10, 12:55 AM · from the mouth of Jim

Ahh, finally a bit of downtime to spend typing random bits of thoughts. First of all, you all might have known, or you might all have not known, but my sister was cookin’ up a little critter in her tummy. Well, it finally decided that it wanted out and she huffed and puffed and blew the little critter out.

Ok, so maybe it wasn’t exactly like that. Two weeks before her actual due date, she started to feel some pain. This is usually normal and they prescribed some drugs and let her go. However, through the following week, it got worse. She went in twice more, and each time was told that it was just normal pre-labor pains.

Well, last Sunday she was experiencing her own little slice of hell and they finally did some blood tests. Monday they called her in and said “we need to get this little dude outa there ASAP.” She had come down with a nasty little blood disease that is brought on by pregnancy. Luckily she developed it very late and they caught it at the “pre” stage, but it can be fatal and they needed to eject the little invader as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately, this handy dandy little disease has this great little side effect-it fucks up your ability to clot. Thus, poking holes in a woman’s back to throw the good stuff into her ain’t a terribly attractive option.

So, they induced her and let her get down with the old school. She huffed and puffed and squeezed that little monkey out the old fashioned way.

William was born very healthy at around 01:30 on Tuesday morning. Me sis’ is doing just fine and dandy too.

So, that was this week’s excitement. For those that may not know, babies are effectively fully cooked about 2 weeks before they’re due, so this is totally fine for the little’un. He probably still has 1-2% more of his lungs to develop, but this type of early birth is totally normal and healthy.

Anyway, so yeah. I poop on ya’ll.

    Wow, Jimmy’s a nuncle. Congrats to you and your sister and crew!

    Let’s help start the kid off right and send a Magic Hat sampler pack. It’s never too early to appreciate the goodness of Vermont brew! On the other hand, I wouldn’t want to distract him from his upcoming year or so of sucking on boobies every day. That must be frikkin’ sweet.

    But I already call you “Uncle Jimmy” all the time. Or at least I used to when we played games behind the bleachers…

    Congrats on being an uncle and to your seester for becoming a momma.

    And what do you preheat the oven to for baby’s? If they’re normally done two weeks early, could you go the bachelor route and up the heat a smidge if you need the baby by a deadline?

    Oh no. It’s official… the Harris’s are starting to spawn. The end is near! Everybody save yourselves!

    Hip hip hooray for Auntie Jimmony! Hip hip hooray for Mommy Laura! Hip hip hooray for Daddy Alex and Grandma and Grandpa (on both sides)! Hip hip hooray!

    By the way, I’ve heard those new Advantium ovens are great! Cooks the baby in half the time and STILL browns and crisps the skin and leaves the inside tender and juicy.

    I’ve heard of the new Advantiums too Ty, I believe I saw Alton Brown use one on Good Eats last week.
