We are in Savannah, visiting my cousin Capri. Capri is my first cousin on my mother’s side. She now teaches at SCAD. I’ve been looking for reasons both to visit her & to go to Savannah for years, so when my layoff vacation started, I jumped onto the Internet and bought a ticket for me & my baby to fly out to Georgia.

Capri’s son, Oliver, is almost exactly two years older than Ben. Of course, this makes him AWESOME in Ben’s eyes. Ben hero-worships Oliver. What’s really unusual though, is that Ben looks more like Oliver than I do like Capri:

Seriously, for having 25% of their genetic material in common, they actually look more like brothers than distant cousins. Part of it is also demeanor – they both tend to look very seriously out at the world, despite their differences in ages.
