Who Is That Other Baby?!

That would be Avrora's maternal cousin, Vsevolod. He was born on December 24, 2004 and resides, currently, in Gorlovka, Ukraine. My family, even married family it seems, tends to have clusters of children.

Frex, Theo, my brother's son, was born in October of 2005. That makes Vsevolod, Avrora, and Theo all less than a year of difference between them despite their fathers ranging between 31 to 22 when they were born. Also, frex, the eldest of the Baird grandchildren, Marissa and Alloura, were born two weeks apart in October of 1997. Mikayla and Cody were the outliers so far in the family having been born in May and March respectively.

This phenomenon is not restricted to this particular generation: my sister Tessa and our cousin Rachel were born within months of each other. My brother Ted and our cousin James were born within weeks of each other too.

It will be interesting to see if the trend holds true in the future too.
