Happy Birthday, Devin!

It is my nephew’s first birthday!! Hard to believe a year has passed already. He remains one of the most loved little boys in the world. An adorable chunker! 

I know nothing of babies. But somehow, all the women in the family seem to know a great deal so most conversations this past year have gone something like this:

Sister-in-law: “He is growing his second tooth.”

Me: “…Oh? Is it…the right time for him to do that?”

Younger Sister #1: *in tones of great disgust* “Of course it is!”

Younger Sister #2: “When else would he grow it?”

Sister-in-law: “He is walking now.”

Me: “…Oh? Isn’t it a little soon for that?”

Mom: “No, this is about when they walk.”

Aunt: “Yes, definitely within the right time.”

Sister-in-law: “He is eating solids.”

Me: “Ah, well, that makes sense.”

Mom: “No, actually, it is unusually early for him to eat as much as he does.”

Younger Sister #2: “How do you not know this?”

IT IS ALL AMAZING TO ME. BUT I DO NOT PRETEND TO UNDERSTAND ANY OF IT.
