11:37 the computer was mines, 11:38 it's teething time!

Yesterday When I decided that it was time to read journals, I came downstairs to prepare to get my fix. I think I got as far as Gem's journal, and Gem's journal was the first one I started to read. I got half way down the post I was reading, and then my sister and her friend walk in the house and interrupt my internet blogging experience. Chandra needed to type up her resume, along with her friends. At first I was about to turn into evil selfish Charles, but then I realized my mistake, and I decided to let them do there thing.

I actually finished reading Gem's post, and I left a comment, but I wanted to read the other entries I missed. Oh well, I posted my comment at 11:37am and by 11:38am I was looking for something else to do. I was about to go and lay down, and as I started to walk upstairs, until I felt a presence. I turned to my left and I noticed my nephew Jalani sitting in his car seat.

I sat down next to him and started talking to him. I was acting goofy and I was trying to get him to start sucking on his fingers (he's teething). There is something about Jalani's smile. It seems infectious. He was sitting there trying to talk to me. I would talk back, and he would just smile. I noticed that he was strapped to his seat, so I unlocked it and picked him up out of it and sat him on my lap. I then stuck my right hand out for him to grab my fingers with his hands. Did I mention that Jalani is teething. He wanted to put my fingers in his mouth, but I wouldn't let him. Then I decided to pull out my camera phone to let him hold on to it. He grabbed it and (yep) he put it in his mouth. I had to take it from him. Then we got off of the couch and walked around the house. I went into the kitchen with him and I opened a cabinet door and let him close it. We went back and forth and back and forth until, Uncle Charles got tired.

We went and sat back down on the couch and I let him play with my fingers. During this time something distracted me in the adjacent room and I lost focus and control of my hand. Jalani took over, and he knew what to do with my hand. He had my index finger, and as soon as he realized that I wasn't paying attention to my hand, Jalani yanked my hand and put my index finger into his mouth. He got my full attention and he knew it. I had to pull my hand away, and he laughed at me. I laughed back, and told him that he can't have my fingers in his mouth. Then I started making funny sounds. I made kissing sounds, I made chomping sounds and I pretended that I was biting him. I had my nephew rolling.

I was glad that my sister asked to use the computer, I had a pretty good time with my Nephew, and I wouldn't trade it for the best journal/blog in the world.

Thanks, Charles, for bringing a big smile to my face tonight.

A smile here as well. I had a similar experience the other night with my computer, though no cute babies were to blame.

Fun without the Internet IS possible. Can you even imagine that? :)

That's sweet Charles. You are going to be a great Uncle Charles. It's hard to be in a bad mood with a baby, huh?

Ah, a backhanded blessing. Once in a blue moon we get something better after giving up what we wanted in the first place.

I should know. I have nephews too.
