La Otra Hermana was supposed to be born on Christmas Day, but came ten days early. So maybe it's appropriate that her son arrived 11 days before his estimated birth day.
They named him Tanielu, which is Samoan for Daniel. (The "T" sound is like a German "Z" -- kind of a "Ts", or a little like the "Tz" in "tzatziki.")
8 lbs, 1 oz, 19" long, all natural birth, 15 hours of labor, born at 7:34pm PDT. I'm proud of my little sister! (Cuz she was always stronger than me and would always beat me up when we were little... I'm a weenie.)
Now I have a nephew! \(^_^)/
