And a Happy New Year it Will Be

Meet my nephew — Benjamin Alexander, born at 2:12 a.m. today, New Year's Eve.

If this is any indication of how our 2013 will be, I say bring it.

I see bright lights and big changes next year — all starting with our newest family member. The cuddliest, most perfect little baby, who I can't wait to love, love, love.

A big mega-phone-loud public congratulations to my sister, who faced labor like a champ. And to her boyfriend, Chris, who has already proven himself to be a proud, beaming dad.

And to everyone: enjoy your last day of 2012. Let's make next year the best one yet.
