This is a site dedicated to showing off my new nephew, Bradley Allen Stevens. Now, I know what you're thinking, "Oh gosh, not another baby picture site!" Take it from me, Bradley's pretty unique. Or don't take it from me: see for yourself. And keep in mind, this kid's not even a year old!

This page contains the pictures from Bradley's first Thanksgiving at my parent's house (and incidentally, his first Thanksgiving, period).

Playing with his Grandfather (a.k.a. "Buddy")

For those of you who don't know, Bradley's Grandfather prefers to be called "Buddy" because he plans for he and Bradley to be good fishing buddies when he gets a little older (Bradley, I mean).

Just Clowning Around

Bradley played with his Daddy and I throughout the weekend, but James never gets to keep him very long (people keep snatching him away) and I'm always on the wrong side of the camera. Here are a few pics I did get, though.

A Brave Kid ...
