This cutie-patootie is my 10-month-old nephew, Lincoln. He came to stay with me last weekend while his parents were away on an anniversary trip, which meant after a six-year break from babydom I was thrown back into the world of feedings and high chairs and playpens and naps and rocking, and everything else that comes along with precious and adorable wee ones.
It was all fun and games until there was sticky poop up the back and I'd completely run out of energy and had to wonder how I'd ever manage if I had to do it over again. I think I'll stick to auntying please!
Auntying is LOTS of fun. I got to squish those cheeks and arms and legs and smell that head and giggle and make goofy noises and video him every other hour and get my baby fill to my heart's content, and then send him home and take a gloriously long Sunday afternoon nap!
