I'm an aunt!

I have been an aunt for more than twelve hours already. Owen Nicholas Langelaar was born a little after 8 am today. Mother Karen and baby Owen are both doing well. Clint sounded very happy on the message I got after I arrived home from work. Owen weighed 6 pounds and 5 ounces. That's all the detail I know. My Mom is now an Oma, since my Dad really wanted to be called Opa. My sisters have voluntarily taken on the title of Tante Rachel and Christina, but I think I'll just be known as Aunt Suzanne, although I doubt Owen will be able to pronounce my name correctly for quite some time. None of my younger siblings ever got it right. I was Zan and San, when they started talking. I am curious if Owen has reddish blond hair or not, like Karen did when she was born. I suppose I will see pictures posted on their blog within a few days. I will see Owen in person in January, when Karen and Clint are coming to Ontario for a visit.
