Aunt Beth Horse

Finals are over! Pictures are in!

Will The Newborn Nephew is my little Gobbles. He has a very long neck. It kind of freaked me out, because sometimes I was in charge of holding it up, which is why I spent most of our bonding time lying down with Will scrunched in a little ball on my chest so that if he rolled off, it was his fault.

When I bent down to greet my new nephew, this is what happened. "Horse! Horse!" Too bad that, at two, Jim The Small Child Nephew is already too tall for jockeydom. Also only the most elite jockeys suck their thumbs in the win photo.

Aunt Beth As Floor Horse lasted perhaps a day before it got boring, and we moved on to more efficient ways of injuring ourselves.
This is my job, as godmother.

Will's main talent at this point is burrito impressions. This is likely as non-German as he will ever get.

Jim is showing an intense early talent for baseball.

Still better than the Reds with men on base.

"TWO babies!" One is allowed to be dressed. One is not. Therapy starts next Tuesday.

Aunt Beth always pushes me around. Do you hear your biological clock ticking, Aunt Beth? Oh, you just saw the price point on the Huggies? Never mind.

I enjoy taking my nephews out drinking.

Jim prepares for the SAT's

Nine pictures and no Domer gear for either of the tykes? You disappoint me.

Oh, they have it, Mike. But Mommy and Daddy went to another school, so I'm not sure how often it actually gets on their backs. I prefer to instruct by osmosis.

Jim must have been more rough on you than I thought. In the "winner's circle" pic you look very groomed, but then with Jim on your shoulders you are very disheveled. No wonder your knee cracked like it did!
And I love Will's burrito impression...
