Trip to the Cedar Rapid's Kenyon's

Yesterday we went to see the Cedar Rapids Kenyon's. I think it was one of my best trips ever there. I know I am prejudiced but Jack is very handsome! He is a man on the move. The only time he isn't moving is when he is sleeping or maybe eating, but sometimes he moves then, too. Jack is dynamite. He is talking a lot more, and what he says is very clear, too. I asked him if he knew who I was when we were playing in his back yard, and he said, "Grandma?" I said, "Yes!" And I gave him a kiss, then I said "Grandma who?" He looks at me with those big blue eyes (and long eyelashes and says, "Grandma Merry"!) Then he said it several times after that before we came home. Tim said last week out of the blue almost he would look at this picture of me they have up and say, "Grandma Merry." Tim claims they didn't coach him on it. He just calls Dave Grandpa since he is the only Grandpa.

Joey had a little fever, a little cough and a runny nose. I hope he is okay. Little kids can go from well to really sick so fast. He still has just 2 teeth. He still is bald as an Eagle (or a Kenyon, LOL). But I betcha he will have blond hair, as this "fringe" he has around the back is definitely blond but it's thin and you have to look to see it. He has to wear a hat outside so he doesn't get a sunburned head. We had a cook out. We had a really nice day. Joey is a very content baby. He is a sweet baby, a good baby! I had lots of cuddling times with Joey, and Jack was warming up to me more yesterday than ever before. It was a perfect day. One of those days you savor forever!
