Today was a work day for me. I stepped out of my office for a moment, and when I came back, sitting in a chair in my office were my sister Corrie and little nephew Steven!
It was such a nice surprise. I was overcome by Little Nephew Cuteness and of course instantly monopolized him, smothering him with kisses and hugs. It has been harder to see him regularly due to our running kids around schedule, my work schedule, and baby nap schedule. So it was great to see Corrie and Steven for a little while! Thanks to my iPhone, we had a little photography sessions, and here is a picture with his little smile and one where he was just gnawing on his burp cloth.
Then we tried to get some closeup shots but he kept moving around so it was hard. But you can see his incredibly cute and chubby cheeks. He kind of reminds me of a Cabbage Patch Doll!
After a while he got a bit tired and just sat there in my lap. What child actually does that?!!! Amazing. I told Corrie she had in incredibly mellow kid. I don’t ever remember either Daniel or Megan just quietly sitting in my lap at this age!
I don’t know if he recognizes me or not, but he does smile when he sees me. Also yesterday, Corrie and I were doing a video chat and I was waving and smiling at Steven and he got all excited and started to kick his arms and legs. As soon as Corrie shut the video chat off, Steven started crying.
Awww, how sad!
