meet daniel

this is daniel - our nephew... some of you may remember him from the wedding. he was six months old, weighing in at 38 lbs. now, he's now 4 1/2 and weighs 42 lbs - he's stretched out a little (thankfully).

daniel is normally a snuggly lil' guy who loves most everybody - esp. Christie.

however, something has changed in the past few months and he has moved from loving Christie to being in LOVE with Christie... which, as most men will understand means I am competition and that is unacceptable. so, while we were home this weekend, daniel turned on me. every time i played with his toys - he took them from me, everything i built with his k'nex he told me he didn't like and then tore them apart. daniel has always been a little anal and we've known he was a control freak - but these characteristics seemed to escalate on Saturday.

the pinnacle of the afternoon came, when daniel quoted one of his favorite shows (rollie pollie ollie). he actually looked me in the face and with a pitiful fake cry, whined: "uncles are no fun!"

ouch! that hurt.
but i guess i can understand since i'm competition and am getting in between him and his 'aunt kissy'
