uncle paiktis


the new generation, better, faster, smarter, slicker has commenced
dear cousine today gave birth to a beautiful healthy 3,8 kilogram baby girl, something which makes me an uncle for the first time in my life.
i provided the newly born baby with a fuxia/pink fluffy giraffe that sings a funny lulalby when you squeeze her.
my first gift to the new generation of the family.
daddy cried somewhat (he's only 30 years old) and the whole family (and daddy's family) has shitted its collective pants with joy.

there were some complications, namely the baby wasn't in a rush to be delivered, it thought it was all cozy and fine inside, so despite the doctors efforts and medecins, that didn't change.
so it was deemed too dangerous for the baby to remain inside, and a ceasarian section was decided.
it was done. everyone is fine mom and baby.

i don't think i've ever seen so many silly smiling faces at once and it was the first time ever i entered a hospital for something positive and happy.
the baby itself is cute they brought it for only 3 minutes. it is so tiny and very red.
someone had placed the id tag too tightly on her little arm and it hurt her and there was commotion with the dad proclaiming i'm gonna fuck them all up but we just laughed so hard and of course the tag was removed and a looser one placed on the tiny hand.
it was quite moving to see cousine whom i remember from being small, now being a mom with her tiny little beautiful baby in her arms.
this new generation is going to conquer the world

Thank you
I've found out what would happen if the baby had not been delivered through ceasarian (But of course we don't tell it to the parents). her brain would have suffocated and there would be irreversible damage which would have her stuck at 3 year old age mental skills.
so, phew
and props to the docs

Pretty sure that doesn't make you an uncle. At best, you're a first-removed cousin.

Still, grats to your family for continuing to help overpopulate the world.

she's my cousine, she had a baby, I am that baby's uncle
my (wider) family does not unofurtunately help overpopulate the world... that was the first baby. neither me nor my other cousins have babies...
actually thinking about it let's say from 3 generations behind, the number of people that are born from the wider family has been diminishing hugely.

You would only be an uncle if the baby had been born to a sister or brother's family. A cousin's child is a cousin.

Yeah, I dunno about Greek but in English the baby would be your First Cousin, once removed.

Number of steps removed just indicates generations, so this baby's child would be your first cousin twice removed.

Or as I said in the first place:

Congratulations!

thanks
well zmama and funko, you increased my curiosity and i searched in a greek lexicon.
it says:
(i translate):
uncle (ancient: uncle): brother or cousin of the father or the mother or the husband of aunt (also a name to call an elderly) ... )

so i guess there is a difference

what does "removed" means?

means they're trying to take out the genes related to you, so they won't have to call you family.

Removed generally means there's a generational difference. For instance, if you share parents, you're siblings. If you share grandparents but not parents, you're first cousins. If you share great grandparents, you're second cousins.

If your great grandparents are your cousins grandparents, you're first cousins once removed. A two generation difference would be twice removed.

If your mom is also your sister, you're from Alabama.

Ok thank you. I understood nothing of all that
It's completely alien
I will read it again tomorrow with a cleaner mind.

Around here is like this though: is is about horizontal genealogy. So everyone from a generation before is your uncle/aunt, everyone from your own generation is your cousin/cousine and everyone from the next generation is your nephew/ nephewess(?!).

Sure, it's simple to understand. But how can you lord it over everyone else unless you have a complex system only you and a handful of other people understand? Priorities!

I explained that.

number of generations difference. Once removed = 1 generation apart, children of your peers. Twice removed = 2 generations apart, grand children of your peers etc.

I think I understand it.. It seems chinese to me.
My mind went to that LOTR film when a hobbit was explaining a lineage and was saying "once removed from his mother's side"
hehe
(strange method )

I think you missed the context of that scene. He was clearly talking about being a Siamese twin.

'scusme, curiosity:

1gen diff: greatgrand=grand you say 1st cousins 1rem
then 2 gen would be 2rem

by that example tho, 2 gen diff means your greatgrand = his parents
that is, he's your granpa brother
sure that can't be a "cousin"...
howdyacallem, granduncle???
