As some of you already know, I'm a great uncle-- not great as in "doing a solid job at the whole uncle-ing schtick" but great as in "my brother is already a grandfather." I feel kind of young to already be a great-uncle, but my nephew is only five years my junior and his father, my brother, is fifteen years my senior, so I suppose it's not entirely peculiar.
My brother is a fun-loving kind of guy it takes a lot to move him to the point of tears, but his son was able to do just that by telling him, "Well Dad, we're naming him after you." So as of last November I not only have a brother, Kevin, but also a great nephew named Kevin. This morning before work I dropped my big bro an email asking if he had any recent pics of his grandson as the last I'd seen of the tyke were taken back in late January. So this afternoon he sent me 3 that were taken about 5 or 6 weeks ago. Upon seeing them my heart about melted. The little guy is just too adorable for words (see below). I can't wait to meet him this November:
