While I'm still awkward around kids I'm not too bad with my nephew but I still don't know what to do with kids, how to interact with them. I'm still proud of this kid.
He's 4 years old now and he's so smart and funny and happy! I envy him sometimes.
Here my sister carved a Thomas pumpkin and he's pretty happy about this one!
A classic thing with our family is to rake up all the leaves and hide in them or jump in them or run through them. In this one my brother is taking his turn hiding under the leaves and my nephew is trying to find him!
My nephew also has a great deal of energy so he's perfectly happy with my sister's puppy, Jilly, who also has a ridiculous amount of energy. When you put those two together they each wear each other out and burn off all the young-people energy they've got! First my nephew is in the lead!
But in a flash Jilly overtakes him! He wasn't too happy when this happened.
My nephew was also signed up for skating lessons. The witch mom didn't choose the greatest time. His lessons are at 2pm and he really should have been in the 12pm class because that's when he's the most awake. When he showed up the first day he was passed out in his car seat. Thankfully all the people waiting on him distracted him so he couldn't even think about being grumpy (pretty sure he was mostly just happy to see his dad).
Here's the jist of skating with dad during this lesson!
It made me laugh before we went into the area. My nephew said to his dad that if he fell his dad had to make sure to pick him up so he could try again. It sounded like he was making a deal with my brother, it was so funny. My brother promised to help him up should he fall down on the ice.[/list]

Can't believe he is only 4 years old. He looks much older! Great nephew. I've got one of those too. Should check around for some photos. He's two years old.
