Lucas' thoughts on his new cousin

I was at the hospital till about 11:30 Friday night, so I didn't get to see Lucas until Saturday morning.

We sat on the stairs, our new favorite place to chat, and I gave him the happy news.

Me: Auntie had her baby last night. A little girl, her name is Sarah.
Lucas: No, it's a little boy.
Me: No, really, she's a little girl, Sarah.
(thoughtful pause)
Lucas: You mean the baby popped out already?
Me: She sure did.

When we went to the hospital Sat. afternoon, Lucas was the proud older cousin, carrying the gift for the baby. I held him up to where he could see Sarah in bed with my sister. He waved a couple of times to his new cousin.
