Note: My sister is 18 and doesn't look kindly upon small humans.
I did not put my child on my sister's lap.
I actually witnessed this with my own two eyes. Nickolas was crawling on the ground, and sat kind of near my sister's legs. He wasn't crying, and he didn't need anything. She looked down, and without looking at anyone reached down with her own two hands and physically lifted him from the ground....nicely!
HAD TO GRAB THE CAMERA!
This is a first!
