I had another cousin arrive a couple of weeks ago. Another boy. When I was younger the talk in the McCann family was all about getting a boy grandson. There were ten grandchildren all girls. My grandfather, the sweetest man on the planet would never have said it, but it was understood that a boy would be nice. Both my uncles had a third child trying to get that boy to no avail. After the long drought in the McCann family Aunt Paula, the youngest daughter, finally popped out a boy and a girl (twins!) 11 years ago and then later, two more boys and now finally one more (the last cousin we think). So the score is Girls 11, Boys 4. I only bring this up because my aunt sent pictures and well I had to share. (As a side note: Guess what they named the newest baby Michele? That's right they named him NOLAN.) On to the pictures!

Nolan I love babies.
Brendan Until recently the youngest grandchild. He's gotten huge since I last saw him in October!
Colleen Poor Colleen with three brothers, she was hoping for a sister.
Nolan, Stephen and Brendan There is one brother missing. Where are you Kevin? Kevin? Hello?

I know they're all so friggin cute and TALL (well not the younger ones, not yet anyways.) But me and my sister, the only two short ones. I got jipped in the gene pool.
