We have returned from our recent trip to Illinois to see W's family. The great grandparents were thrilled to see both the Peanut and her second cousin, our niece's son. Here with the Peanut is her cousin. Although he's 11 months younger than her, he's not too much smaller.

That makes this little guy my great nephew. I have a hard time accepting that I am a great aunt. Great aunts are old people. I am not old enough to be a great aunt.

They seemed to really enjoy spending time together.
And what is that secret you're telling him, Peanut?
