COLORADO SPRINGS, May 12 (UPI) -- Britain's Prince Harry practiced being an uncle, playing with a 10-month-old baby in attendance at the Warrior Games in Colorado, the baby's mother said.

While on a weeklong tour of the United States, Harry attended the Warrior Games, an athletic event for wounded U.S. servicemen and women, held in Colorado Springs.

While watching the events, the prince played with and made faces with 10-month-old Sebastian Wilkowski, who was there with mom Julia, 37, and father Kip, a 43-year-old retired air force pilot, People magazine reported Sunday.

"[Harry] said, 'It's great to meet you' and asked, 'Who is this little guy?' And, 'You have a lot of hair for a 10-month-old.' He came closer and did a little small talk with the baby, and he just reached out and then made a little raspberry and funny faces. He made silly faces, and then he started blushing a little bit because he didn't think Sebastian would grab him," Julia said. "Then Harry went to walk away and came back with another funny face. It was cute."

"He is wonderful with children," Kip said.

"I think he'll make a great uncle. He was holding his hand -- all the things you do with babies," Julia added.
