When "Aunt Favorite" babysits

So my sister Michelle brought baby Jonny Lingo to town for her 10year highschool reunion. She didn't think it would be the wisest thing to take him with her to the actual "Celebration" (If that's what you want to call reunions.). So she left baby Lingo with me and Nonnie. Since This is the first baby any of my sisters have had I've never really been called any fun nicknames. So I've come up with my own. Aunt Favorite.

Well I didn't want Lingo's experience to be Boring. I mean when you give yourself a nickname like Aunt Favorite you have to live up to all the hype. So I came up with a very busy schedule for us. It went something like this:

First I fed him the good stuff. I'm sure there was Diet Pepsi in there. I mean all he's had is "milk" so far. I mean I am Aunt Favorite.
Next I taught him how to read. Yeah I am that good. I knew that the only real chance he had at being edjumacated was by me. Then I had him read it to Delaney. Just so he could work on his fluency with the words.
What you can't see here is that he is learning how to tie knots in this picture. All boy scouts have to learn this skill so I thought there is no time like the present. I really want him to be an Eagle scout someday and I know that I can't really count on his parents to teach him anything (I mean really they left him with me)

We also played hide and seek, but I am having trouble finding that picture. When I do though you will see how smart Lingo is. I mean he found the perfect place to hide.

We had a blast though. I love having another little nephew. Who dresses so well too. I mean where did he get all of his clothes from?

Yea... You'd be my Aunt Favorite too... Wish I had thought of that catch phrase for me about 21 years ago.
