As of 4am this morning, I'm an uncle to Ava, daughter to my brother Duncan and his partner Jennifer ...

The above is Ava about an hour after she was born, with Mum visible in the background. Both are apparently doing well.

Thanks very much! I think it's going to be quite a shock for Jennifer and, particularly, Duncan. When I was up at Christmas I didn't get the feeling that he'd made many changes to his lifestyle in the run-up to Ava's [*] arrival - we'll see. I'm up in Scotland in April, so that should give things time to settle down a bit. They're just down the road from both sets of grandparents though, so they'll be able to get a lot of help if they need it.

[*] In passing, I do have to say that I really like her name! :-)
