First Cousin Once Removed

First cousin once removed holding first cousin twice removed. We visited this newest member of our family over the weekend. He's a little doll with a cleft chin, cheek dimples, big baby blues and a winning smile. He accepted us very nicely - no crying or shrinking away - he seems to be a naturally sociable little guy.

Our first cousin once removed and her husband, our first cousin once removed by marriage (does this sound like The Mikado?), are exhausted as the little boy is teething and they get little sleep. Nick fell asleep standing up in Whole Foods. When you get three hours sleep a night, week after week, it wears you down. We're hoping the teething is over with soon and everyone can settle down for a while.


  1. Surfing through your family members was a little complicated, but finally I did it! Loved the little social boy! :)

  2. I always thought she was a second cousin until I looked it up on First cousins and their children remain first cousins and the generations are indicated by the 1st, 2nd, 3rd designation.
