King IV and the Eiffel Tower

My nephew, King, is the cutest kid in the world. (I can say that, because my oldest child is still a toddler!)

I can't even begin to explain to you the love that explodes out of my heart for this little boy. Maybe it's because he was the first, maybe it's because he's the son of one of the most amazing men I know, or maybe it's just because he's awesome. Just. Plain. Awesome.

And this awesome little nugget's favorite new thing? The Eiffel Tower. 

This morning he asked me to take a picture of him and his Eiffel Tower. Well, not at first. At first, King asded me to take a picture of the tower. JUST the tower. 

So then I asked to take a picture of HIM and his tower. 

This cutie melts me. I promised him that I would show him a picture of the day that I got to go see the Eiffel tower myself. He was so, so excited. So, I went home and found the picture. 

We FaceTimed so I could see his reaction when his most awesome and amazing aunt went ALL THE WAY over to France to see the HUGE Eiffel Tower in person.

So, as he is looking at my picture, without an ounce of expression on his face, I asked him what he thought about my super cool photo!? 

"Good," and he looked off in another direction. Something more exciting calling for his attention.

Well, thanks. That sure wasn't the reaction I was hoping for, kid.

Still, he's my favorite. My first little generational love. He makes my tummy go goey and my heart bubble over. And his love for France? Melts me even more. (Pretty sure he has no idea the Eiffel Tower is in France, but a girl can dream. Can't she?)
