I very much enjoy being an uncle, so that seemed like a good place for my first real post. Also, at some point I came across this timeline theme and it seems like tracking some cute pictures of my nephew and then niece is a good way to test it out. So, here goes.
A baby boy is born
I was supposed to be in Costa Rica already, but I’m glad my move was delayed so I could meet this little guy when he was only a week old!
Christmas in Arcata
It’s hard being 3 months old (and also being 23 years old, apparently)
It took a couple hours for him to get used to my beard, but we figured it out.
Um… I think this was in Portland, OR, when his dad was riding a bike a long distance? (Seattle to Portland)
Kyle’s first international journey - ‘Tío’ was much easier to say than ‘Uncle’ or ‘Clayton’.
Costa Rica #2
Eagerly awaiting that first ever taste of chocolate….
Costa Rica #3
There were a ton of great pictures, very difficult to keep it to only three.
Santa Barbara - picture time
When phones were clearly the coolest because everyone always looks at them.
More SUGAR please…
Sunday night chat
Looks like it was hot in Santa Barbara, but we’re having fun anyway.
Family chat & meeting Ellie
“so little sister, we stare at this video screen and say whatever comes to mind while Mom, Tío, Papa, Shooby, and Uncle Casey talk”
Kyle: she’s so heavy…
‘Ah, finally you’re holding me correctly to smile winsomely at the camera.’
Ring in the New Year - so long as you don’t take my binky.
We survived to find Mom at the finish line; even if we were a little distraught she did not hear our ‘ahoy matey, shiver-me-timbers!’ shouts along the way…
Sunnyvale - Merry Christmas!
It is endlessly entertaining to guess what they are thinking… ‘This Minney Mouse has big ears.’ Or maybe ‘Legos are nice and all but what is in this unopened package?!?’
Don’t mess with my flow, Tío, I’m going to the top!
