|Our niece, Amelia just shy of 12 weeks|
Today, he started talking to her. Got her sat up on his chest and she would "AAAAA" at him, or half grin, sometimes a big toothless smile would come out.
I told him to have a conversation with her, not just say "Hi" like he kept doing. So, he decided to tell her about the holidays. Why? I have NO idea. But, she was soaking it up and enjoying her conversation with Uncle J.
Arbor Day. Really? Arbor Day? Where did that come from?!
Then comes Halloween. Yes, my husband is such a nut about fall that September 1st rolled around and we have some decorations out. So, his grandmother goes and get the batpumpkin to go along with the Halloween description.
|Somehow she wasn't screaming at this scary thing|
|She kept looking at the pumpkin|
Finally, Christmas. He asks if she knows about Santa, "AAaaaAAAa" was her response. He told her about the flying reindeer, "which you don't see much around the south, because people like to hunt too much".
He tells Amelia that Santa is a big guy with a fat tummy and a white beard, that he wears red. He tells her that Santa comes down your chimney to bring you presents.
But, if you don't have a chimney, he comes up your toilet bowl
WHAT did you just tell her?! I couldn't stop laughing.
Later he says, "I'm really happy that she's starting to interact some, she's getting fun!"
He's learning the love an uncle can have for a niece. I can't wait to see him play with her when she's a toddler!
Baby fever anyone?! lol
