I'm head over heels

The pride and joy of my pride and joy has arrived.
Abigail "Abby" Thérèse Ann Contant was born this past Friday. She is the daughter of my Little Bro, Dan, and his wife, Pretty Christine. The closest I've come to meeting her is via photos and webcam from Timmins, but it's enough that I'm totally head-over-heels in love. I'll gladly fill the role of surrogate paternal Grandpa, going by the name of Uncle Bob. Heck, I've already bought her a Team Canada hockey jersey.
I'm flying to Timmins Saturday to visit her. First stop after her Dad picks me up at the airport is her house, of course, then a quick trip to the mall to buy her a teddy bear, and maybe a couple other things.
Welcome to the world, Abby, my little Peanut. You will one day realize how surrounded with love you've been since the day you were born.
