My youngest nephew Oscar is almost 2 and a half years old and obviously i am biased but he is the cutest little being, typical blonde hair and blue eyes with the hint of cheekiness in his eyes and smile.
As he has been learning different words to say over the last 6 months, we have been encouraging him to say Aunty Shell and Uncle Neil…….Well we got Aunty Shell in the early months of this year, as for Uncle Neil haha , the little rascal is totally playing us all, after numerous times of all the family saying ‘say Uncle Neil’ over and over again only for him to reply Shell or some other random word or smirk as he just avoided the ask from us.
We did a FaceTime call in May and again my brother and sister-in-law were saying ‘say Uncle Neil’ and wait for it, he finally said it…..whoo!! He had the most cheekiest grin on his face and as we all clapped and cheered him, as he stood there clapping and cheering himself..bless him!
Have we heard him say it since….No, Shell yes all the time but Neil nope, nada not a bean, maybe that was his lot for now!
