Foto Friday - Family Men
Have we met?
I don't believe so, so let me formally introduce myself - My name is Aiden.
And M is my auntie.
You know M, right?
From what I can tell, she likes to poke fun at everyone, she is always eating my mommy's food, always smells a little like she just rolled out of bed, and sometimes she gets really nervous when my mommy puts me in her arms.
And what's up with her hair?
Anyways, she seems nice and all, but...um...hey - can I tell you something? Between you and me?
So far, she hasn't been a super great auntie.
I mean, she comes in, she swings my big brother No No around, gives him lots of kisses and love, and he loves it and they play fire trucks together. She even brings him donuts that my mommy makes her take back home because she says it's not good from her "baby weight."
Whatever that means.
But then, with me, she mostly just comes over to me in the swing, leans in close, and says right in my face, "How come he always sleeps when I come over?"
It sort of bothers me, especially since I am just starting to get this whole vision thing down. I mean, she already looks sort of funny from a distance, so it's not hard to imagine that super-up-close version with a little vision-distortion can freak a little man out, right?
Sigh. I just don't think she likes me so much.
And people, how could you not like THIS face?
Maybe with time she will come to appreciate my finer qualities - my non-fussiness, my ability to sleep long stretches, the general containment of my poopies to my diaper (which, for a newborn, is not small feat, people). And besides she seems to talk a lot about running and some bike thing, so maybe once I can move on my own, master that whole "crawling" thing, wipe my own butt, and develop coordination, maybe then she might come play with me.
But I guess until then, I guess I still have my brother:
Yeah, this ol' boy isn't all that bad - I mean, once he got past the fact that I wasn't leaving, he seems to have stopped torturing me, poking my eyes, and slapping my head.
Although he has taken to peeing on the floor in his bedroom since my arrival. I wonder what that means...
Well, it's time for my mid-mid-morning milkies, and my mom gets cranky when I get off schedule. See ya later!
