Yes, this is the same little sister who overtook me and had her first baby, Chloe, a whole 2 years before Eva was even thought of.
And she did it again! Giving birth to their second child, Cyrus, a healthy 6 lb 7 oz baby boy last night in the Seattle area:

We're gonna go visit them later this month, giving them some time to settle in first. Can't wait for Eva to meet her new cousin though!

Eva also had her first visit to the super cool Monterey Bay Aquarium (rocks!):
