My sister and mom screamed when we showed them a ultrasound. Daniel stared in confusion, asking, “Is Yuma going to have a baby?” (Yuma is Arabic for “Grandma.”) When he accepted a message, he smiled, said, “Great,” and afterwards asked if he could go play now. It was a ideal instance of the, “Okay, now on with a good stuff” sensibility of a large brother.
