Uncle-in-law for 2nd time

My wife’s brother and his wife have become parents for their first time with the birth of a daughter. Several weeks earlier than expected but a good weight and healthy. Obviously needs support on the food and temperature fronts.

My wife’s sister and her husband are also relatively new parents having see their first child, a boy, born late last year. He is suffering at the moment with eczema and a pretty severe case of croup (which always seems horrific to the parents).

Personally, I am pretty glad that our kids are well into the teens. The aforementioned new parents are all a good few older than me and my wife were when our first-born arrived. We know what the parents have coming (worth it for the good times no doubt, but sill something of a roller-coaster).
