My nephew turned 3 yesterday. Still remember him being born. He looked JUST like Dailah when she was born. Lots of thick, brown hair. And now, they’ve grown up to be, what I lovingly refer to as, “the wonder non-twins”. Elihu John is hilarious. If he doesn’t end up being a lineman, I’ll be shocked. He’s my stocky lovebug. He speaks in a monotone that is so irresistible. Imagine a computer voice saying, “I love you aunt Tesi.” Yep, precious. He is Dailah’s best friend, her day is not complete until she’s seen him or pretended to talk to him on the phone. My day is so much better if I get to wrap my arms around this guy and give him a big squeeze.
It was also my sweet sister-in-law’s birthday as well. I loved this girl from the very first time I met her and it’s truly only gotten better since then. She is everything I wanted to be when I grew up. I am so, so proud of her (in the least condescending way possible) and love introducing her as my sister.
There might be a small family resemblance here.
Look at Tariku’s face, hilarious.
