tonight, i am hanging out with my ridiculous nephew. three and a half year olds are hilarious. and exhausting. luckily, this one's been sick, so he's not at full energy level right now. which means he still has 400% more energy than me.
it's pretty fun to compare him to shorty mcgee...they are very very different. she was extremely verbal very early on. he is just getting to a semi-verbal point. he mostly just repeats things in his stinking adorable voice.
dooby doob? chardie browd? bye, buddyyyyyyy.
baby danger and shorty are also very similar in some ways, though. they are both super smart and super musical. i am pretty sure shorty will, like her father, master every musical instrument and be the star of many stage shows. baby danger will probably get totally into guitar and start a cool hipster band. he'll definitely rock some skinny jeans.
the little man has the best smile, an incredibly joyful heart, and gives the greatest hugs and kisses. although he is a total stinker, he is also a total sweetheart.
he is currently hiding under his jake and the neverland pirates blanket yelling, 'yuyu, where are you?' (not quite the master of l's yet) and then giggling to himself.
it's really too bad i don't like my nephew at all.
