Julia: Your son?!
Sammy: Hmph. Gavin isn't my son, Julia!
Julia: But he's got the same hair, the same eyes ...

Hi, Can someone help me out with this problem? I see this line (the 4th line from Sammy) ...He's two here... I guess it means He's two years old. If so, why do you use "here" instead of "years old"? If not, what does it mean? Thank you.

Hi Hung,

The word 'here' in this context means 'in this picture'. We use it when we are showing another person old pictures or videos.

I haven't had any nephews or nieces but I have a cousin who is 25 years younger than me. He is my uncle's son. He is a good boy. I often take him out so he loves me a lot. He is sometimes forgetful so he says me " Aunt Guitar...". Haha... He is so cute.

I don't have any niece or nephew but if I'll have niece or nephew I'll try to be a good uncle for them. I'll take them to the park or other good places.
