  • Finally got to meet Niko. This is the closest I came to getting a clear shot of the little squirmer.
  • It's snowing here in Philly and we're trying to keep warm.
  • He's never not cute.

  • He fell asleep on his hair on the flight over and asked me to fix it.
  • I couldn't resist.

Him: ... "The next morning they went out on their second"?
Me: Damn it.
