My New Cousin

A blog from Daniel, inspired by a blog from Andrew...

Guess what everybody?? I have a new cousin. My Aunt Cathy, who I lovingly call "Aunt Cahkeee" had her baby. Let me tell you, he's a cutie. He has a head full of that darn black hair the women in this family have. Why it's not blond, like mine, or red like my Uncle Joe's, I just don't know.

Anyway, he was born on Friday night while I ran around the waiting room burning off energy and looking in the nursery window. I tried to show all the newborn babies my cars, but they didn't seem too interested. He was 6 pounds and 10 ounces and 18 and 1/2 inches long. He looked really tiny to me though. They named him Elijah or Eli for short. I call him "Baby EeeeLyyyyy". I was told to be very gentle so I just pointed out all his facial features for the new mama. I even told her when his eyes were closed so she would know he was sleeping.

I really liked Baby Eli, but when my Mama held him, I wanted to be held too. Afterall, my Mama is mine and Baby Eli gets Aunt Cahkee. It's funny because I heard my Mama telling Baby Eli that she couldn't wait to give him coffee and chocolate. It's the same thing my Aunt Cahkee always tells me, but then I never get it. What's with that?? It must be a joke between Mamas.

Anyway - I suppose I'll share some pictures of Baby Eli with my Aunt Cahkee's permission of course.

I love having a new cousin!!! I can't wait to see him again!!

Also - I am posting a picture of my artwork from day care. Mama especially likes the turkey made from my very own handprints. She showed it to everyone and then hung it up. She's so silly sometimes fawning all over the papers I color. I'm surprised she doesn't frame them and hang them in a gallery somewhere. Oh wait...did I hear her mention we need to take a trip to the craft store. Silly Mama!

Love, Daniel
P.S. Mama said she was going to do a big update about me soon. I guess I'd better be a good boy for the next couple of days!

Your new nephew is adorable, and I love it that Daniel pointed out all of his facial features -- smart boy! The Halloween and Thanksgiving artwork is pretty darn cute, too!

Congrats Mr Daniel on your new baby cousin! I enjoyed reading your post like I did from your friend Andrew! Keep them coming!

Eli is so sweet. It is funny how our little ones are jealous of babies invading their territory. Very cute.

I enjoyed all the artwork. It gave me some ideas for nursery class at church. I loved the turkey made from hands. Too cute.

Great artwork, Daniel, keep up the good work! A few Thanksgivings from now, your mom will look back on those little turkey hands and hardly remember when you ever could have been that small! Sweet memories!
