Today is the birthday of Nephew #2!
I am very happy to have him closer to me for the last few years. When #2 was born, his dad was in the Navy and he lived far away. Live throws curve balls and now he lives close by. I have loved the last couple years getting to know him better.
Nephew #2 is a sweet, smart, imaginative little weirdo. (I mean this in the best way possible.) He understands concepts that other kids don’t. All the while, still being an 11-year-old kid. He is creative, sensitive, and can recite any Phineas & Ferb episode out there.
He is a budding geek! WOO-HOO! I am proud to have introduced him to Doctor Who. And he learned to play Magic cards with my husband. He is watching the old school movies with his mom. He is getting into Star Wars too. He is just an all around cool kid.
One of the really special things is the bond that #2 and Niece #3 have formed. They are 2 months apart in age and when they get together, they are definitely partners in crime. I remember loving spending time with my cousins growing up and it is so great to see this.
So Bubba, I wish you an amazing birthday! I hope that you know just how amazing, I think that you are. And I can’t wait what greatness you will bring to the world.
I love celebrating my nieces & nephews!
