As I said yesterday, I spent the weekend getting acquainted with my new nephew, Evander. He is my sister's first baby (and likely her last) and he is probably the cutest little man in the world. Well, he is at least on par with my other two nephews, Isaiah and Eligh.
Now, let me just say, I'm not a baby person and I don't want any of my own, like EVER. But it's pretty cool being an aunty. It gives me an excuse to crochet cute little toques and blankets (like the ones pictured above) and I get to learn all about baby things and kid things that I otherwise would know nothing about. Like, for instance, I now know that I need to crochet baby hats larger than you might expect, so that they're easy to pull on without pushing that nasty soft spot on the back of a baby's head. (Ick!) And because of my other nephews who are now six and five, I know about Lego Star Wars and Lego Batman... and I also know that when a kid says, "Look what I can do..." it's exactly like watching Stuart on MADtv. Seriously, that request means, I'm going to flail around a bit and do nothing of any interest, but because I'm a kid it's still cute or at the very least funny.
Ah yes, the life of an aunty. It's pretty grand, I tell you.
