I'm Uncle Kurt now.
Natalie Teresa Benic was born October 1st at 11:06pm. She was ripped from her mother's womb, MacDuff-style (aka C-section), due to her being somewhat wrapped around her own umbilical cord. Both mother and daughter are doing fine, though. I went up this morning/afternoon to see them, and ended up holding Natalie for about half an hour or so. Quite an odd sensation. Didn't increase or decrease my desire to have children (said desire still wavering around...zero), but you can't help but feel protective towards something that small and defenseless in your arms.
