the littlest castro

July 9, 2008

Brooke is having the baby soon — she’s due tomorrow! — and I am beside myself with giddy anticipation.

This will be the first grandchild for my mom and dad, much to their joy and relief, and my very first nephew or niece.

“I’m gonna be an auntie!” I keep squealing. I already have a deep (and sometimes ridiculous) affection for practically every child I’ve ever met, but this will be different. This will be one of ours. A Castro. The littlest Castro. I cannot wait to meet the tiny precious thing.

    Your little post moved me to tears.

    I hope your sister had an easy delivery, and that both mother and child are well.

    Not to mention Auntie Christine.

  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
