Alex Rinehart

Steve’s an uncle! My nephew was born on January 12th, 2012. Today is his two week birthday, and I will proudly display photos of my little buddy Alex Rinehart.

Last week, I went to Milwaukee to meet my nephew. He was very appropriately dressed.

I got to spend all day with him on Thursday and Friday. My sister characterized her son well: He is always in a state of waking up on a Saturday morning. Karen and the baby are doing well. The new grandmother loves holding Alex. This baby is well photographed. My sister had the neat idea to take pictures of Alex with common objects. Here he is thinking about whether to pay the 10% or $200 on Income Tax.

And here is the little guy dreaming of the day he can compete for the Taboo Championship cup and win the right to be served pie by the Flowers women.

He already has the competitive spirit. I challenged him to a thumb war, and he won!

It was great to meet my nephew, and I can’t wait until I see him next.

    Great photos! I must say that we “stole” the idea of taking his picture next to certain objects from our cousins on the other side, Chris and Mary Beth Geiser.

    The thumb war photo is PRICELESS.

[…] Two months ago I was in St. Louis…then Milwaukee, then Princeton, then Pittsburgh, then Princeton, then New Orleans, then Nashville, then Milwaukee, then Princeton, then Nashville, then Houston, and back to Nashville.  DC and Durham were also supposed to be on that list, but car troubles prevented that.  I could go into extensive detail about the past couple of months, but lets just say they involved multiple car problems, multiple conferences, multiple unexpected nights on an air mattress, but most nicely a nephew.
