There is a book I recomend for understanding different personalities. It is called Please understand me.
http://www.amazon.com/Please-Underst...2469670&sr=1-1
There are some personalities more rare than others. If we understand them and love them the way they are they are wonderfull part of our life.
I would make something for the Baby

knitting Nat.. I have some family kind-oh like what you have.. I am going with the NOT knit a thing for them. They won't understand the work (or love) you put it. you would be wasting your time. It will not make you feel better.

A strange thing happens when we do something for someone else...we tend to stop thinking about ourselves and find ourselves in a better position to forgive...

You never know what small token of kindness will touch that family and open up the lines of communication.

auburnchick, thank you for the kind words, but i tried, i really tried to be nice. This uncle is about 8 years older than me and we tried to ask them to go out with us or have a BBQ - NOTHING. I think they won't appreciate my efforts. I left a congrats message on his cell phone, he never returned my call... I guess some people don't want to be family, so i'll stop trying for now. I have my parents, my husband, my sister and my grandparents to care for, not to mention the pets.

Families are odd everywhere, in every culture. I recommend that you keep in mind that their behavior isn't about you, rather it's about them. Don't take it personally.
