Ayvind Finn Hutchings!

My first nephew (though 4.5th time as an aunt) was born last night around 9 or 10pm. It was a looong, difficult natural labor, and both my brother Nick and amazing sister-in-law Tia were just exhausted. But it's all for the best since now we finally have a beautiful baby boy. He's small, but mighty at 5 lbs, 14 ounces, and 19 inches long. He has black hair, almost like a mullet (awesome!), which is even better since most Hutchings babies are born bald. I myself remained that way until about the age of 3.

Yes his name is Ayvind Finn, which most people won't be able to say, so it's Ay (as in pay) and vind (as in wind). It's originally Scandinavian, but they changed the spelling to make it easier to pronounce (hee hee). I think it's gorgeous though and totally suits both parents and baby. Finn comes from Tia's best friend Donna who they couldn't name the baby after, as it is a boy, and they didn't want it to get beat up too badly. Though with my unusual brother as his father, this might be inevitable. So Donna chose Finn which I think is adorable. His nickname is the "Mini Pooper" since Nick and I call each other Poo and Pooe respectively. I know it's dorky, but it would take a long time to explain why. So Ayvind is officially the Mini Pooper.

I wish I could be there, but sadly, I am stuck in LA, waiting anxiously for pictures of my first nephew! I have another niece or nephew arriving in I think July, so this is all just too exciting!


  1. Congrats! Beautiful name.

    How many siblings do you have? And are you the only one who hasn't reproduced yet? LOL

  2. Thanks! I have four older brothers, three of whom are married. One has three girls, another has a pregnant wife who is due in July, and then there's this one. The only remaining sibling is a jackass so hopefully he never reproduces. Or maybe he should if it would make him not such a jackass. I am in no hurry to have kids. I love being an aunt! You get to play with them and have fun with them, and as soon as they poop or cry, you hand them off to their parents! It's the best!
