Ode to My Nephew

:

I’m sure that by many cultural standards, my baby nephew is in fact, not the cutest baby in the whole world. In fact, I’m sure that every single other new parent in the world disagrees with me.

I say to hell with them! My nephew is SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Every time I check my e-mail I am slightly let down when there is nothing new from my brother. When I see an e-mail from him or my sister in law with an attachment I generally squee, shriek, bounce in my chair or all three. I try to restrain myself to just a bounce at work but I am not always successful. Thankfully, most of my coworkers have children and understand the baby mania. See, I have no desire to actually have a munchkin myself but they are SO CUTE to look at and play with! 

Missing my family is hard. Jakob can’t exactly talk on the phone with me yet. In fact, he’s yet to even meet me, except half asleep on Skype. Usually I don’t miss the US too badly but having my very first nephew and not getting to meet him is hard!  I’ve decided to share (with permission of my brother) some of my favorite nephew worshiping pics.

To be fair, you can’t actually see much of Jakob in this one but this one of my favorite pictures of all time. I forgot where I read it but a blogger was recently bemoaning the lack of cool towels like this for adults. I COMPLETELY AGREE. I would so buy a towel like that if it came in my size.

 Need I say more??? How cute is he?!

This is the background on my work computer desktop. It has led to much cooing from my students and co-workers and I must say, I enjoy a good mutual coo fest.

See, obviously Jakob is the cutest baby in the whole wide world. Those of you who think otherwise may leave. 😀
