This past weekend

We went to Los Gatos this weekend to visit Becky's parents and our niece and nephew, who they were babysitting while Becky's sister and her husband took a few days' break.

My nephew Liam, pictured here with one of Becky's Christmas cookies, woke up from his nap and wandered out to the living room. I hoisted him by the armpits and held him as high as I could — an avuncular gesture of affection that I think he is starting to enjoy a little — and said "Hey, nephew! How the heck are you?"

Liam looked down at me. After a moment's consideration he replied, a pensive look on his face. "I'm just fine. How the heck are you?"

He really is a cute little guy, and speaks very clearly. In some ways, he reminds me of Chris when he was little; his studious, contemplative nature. He has an absolutely adorable little sister, also.
