Man, Do I Love This Baby
"Austin, you're making Auntie Nettie's knee hurt. Can we please sit down?" Wait a beat. "OK, apparently not." Up and down and up and down and up and down. But I guess he's like me- neither one of us can sit still. He likes to be walked. So it's "Shh, Jammy, Jamie, Jammy, Jammy, Jam, please don't cry." Back and forth and back and forth and- "Belle, get OUT of my way. I don't care about me getting hurt, but if you make me drop this kid...." It's not a bad drive down to Melissa's in-laws' on Lake Thurmond, through little towns called Cameron and Wagener and Modoc, green fields with I think goats. But nothing compares to my wondrous little nephew.
