My New Nephew: David Judah Bilhorn

I have a third nephew now to join the other two rascals (John Lukas, Caleb Aaron).

David Judah was born on September 6, and he looks remarkably like his father.  Poor guy. 🙂

His parents are my brother Josh and his wife Opala.  They are very proud parents.  And I’m a proud uncle.

Being an uncle is one of the best things because you get several of the benefits of enjoying kids without the costs.  We took my other two nephews, Caleb and Luke, to the Shedd Aquarium the day before David decided to arrive, and it was just awesome.  Going to museums is so much more fun with children, because you begin to see things through their eyes again.

Chesterton has this brilliant insight on kids:

“God is strong enough to exult in monotony.  It is possible that God says every morning, ‘Do it again’ to the sun; and every evening, ‘Do it again’ to the moon.  It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but he has never got tired of making them.  It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we.”

You know, maybe Peter Pan was more right than we thought…maybe I’ll try to help my nephews stay as “lost boys” for as long as they can.
