This weekend I flew to Columbus, Ohio, to visit my sister, my nephew Teddy, and my brand new nephew Elliott. My mom also flew up from Georgia to meet up with us for a few days. I spent a good part of the weekend holding the new baby, which was perfect. He is so freakin’ adorable, and he would fall asleep on me with his arms all wrapped around me, snoring.
My other nephew, Teddy, was a little harder to keep up with. He is almost four, and he has a ton of energy! He gets super excited when he solves a puzzle on the iPad, and he’ll scream with delight. It’s the cutest thing ever. He is ridiculously smart — he can legit read, at three years old. Not just memorizing a book he’s heard a bunch of times, but if he sees a new word, he can actually read it, or even read nonsense words he makes up from letter blocks. He can also name the states and capitals, and point out countries like Bhutan and Macedonia on a map. I may be biased, but I think he is a genius.
