on being an uncle

I just found out my cousin Hui-Lin and his wife have recently welcomed their first child. There is nothing more precious than bringing a new life into the world. I'd like to congratulate the couple and wish them all the best for the future.

I'm aware that their little boy is technically my first cousin once removed. However, Chinese people often refer to children of cousins as nephews and nieces, hence my use of the term "uncle."

In other news...

On a similar note, my cousin Tom and his wife Sarah are also expecting a baby boy next month. I'm really happy for the them as well. Our family just keeps getting bigger.
