I'm an uncle!

I became an uncle on December 1st, over a week ago. Now I have a niece named Lilly. Among my ongoing priorities, my first was traveling to Southern Illinois so I could see her. That's why I've been an absent blogger for a little whi—omg, it's been a month since I last posted anything. Whoops. Still, becoming an uncle excuses everything, right?
You can't see it in the picture, but her whirly hair makes her look like the living manifestation of a species invented by Dr. Seuss.
In the lead-up to Lilly's birth, I attended her baby shower, which involved me playing a game. My mom melted various different candy bars onto an assortment of diapers. The objective was to correctly guess said candy bars. I did not win, and all I have to show for my effort is me sniffing a diaper, which is not weird at all.
Now that Lilly, this sweet little angel, has entered our lives, it's got me thinking. After all, there is nothing like having a child. You know, maybe, just maybe... NOPE, children are out of the question. I'd rather not hallucinate from sleep deprivation. My poor, poor sister and brother-in-law.
