And in other news...

I became an aunt for the sixth time at about seven o'clock this morning. Our fifth girl, I feel for my poor, lone nephew. But as I told him, I survived growing up with two brothers, you can survive two sisters and three girl cousins. And you'll come away from it with a great understanding of the other side.

Considering he's seven, though, this wasn't particularly comforting to him. At least I tried.

Haven't seen the kidlet yet, since Emmy+Hospital+Being up all night=no good things for -anyone- involved. But I'll head over that way soon enough, probably after the parentals have had a chance to take a long, well deserved nap.

And to think before kidlet number 1 was born, I was only the second girl born on my father's side of the family in two hundred years. Guess I'm not special anymore.

Whee! Congratulations!

(Khhhhh I got Frank the Death Goat when I refreshed the page D:)

I am likewise a solo girl with two brothers. My dad's family was pretty well mixed (two girls, three boys), while my mother's side stacked the deck a little more - six girls, one living boy (another son was stillborn).

Off the top of my head, my first paternal cousins come to four boys and two girls (including my brothers and I), while maternal male cousins way outnumber maternal female cousins (again, including my brothers and I).

Your nephew will probably get over it. :D

ETA: Also, my one surviving maternal uncle found it to be a fairly beneficial situation! As both the only boy and one of the younger kids, he was spoiled rotten.
