I am an aunt and I’m thrilled about it! I’d be even more thrilled if I could be snuggling with the little guy, breathing in that newborn smell and trying not to be too awkward when he’d inevitably wriggle around in hopes of escape, all the while crying. I tend to have that effect on newborns. Kids only start to adore me at around eight months. That was generous. We’ll say a year. I’m great when you get to know me.

Anyway I’m the world’s most excited aunt. I wake up every day and think to myself, “I’m someone’s aunt.” I text my friends pictures. I tell strangers. I’m pretty annoying about it.


Emre Percy McKee was born February 7 2015 at 8:32 am. He weighed 8lb 1 oz, was 21 and a half inches long. His mom, Laleinia, is incredible and I’m so grateful to her for escorting him into this world! And I’m proud of my brother Alastair for helping. Awesome parents. But look: he’s all Holl:
