I’m about to type something that I can’t even make be true. Ready?
My little grandson Jackie will be ONE in two weeks and two days.
The good news is that he’s just as cute as ever and each new stage brings so much fun! Now that he’s older we can take him to restaurants easily. He had a blast with us last Wednesday night at our local 99. He colored, ate two bags of oyster crackers, had some of my chicken, some of Dale’s baked macaroni & cheese, and some of his mother’s fish. He was admired by many and he shot incredulous looks at the people who walked by him who didn’t stop to tell him he’s cute. You think I’m kidding but I’m not. I swear he’s just so used to being smiled at by . . . everyone . . . that he really does notice when someone doesn’t give him a grin and say he’s adorable.
He also loves going grocery shopping with me. He smiles at everyone and loves looking at all of the things on the shelves. I’d be lying if I didn’t say it’s pretty flattering when people think he’s my baby and not my grandbaby – and that happens at least once on every trip! Last Friday he had his first piece of cheese from the deli and he inhaled it. Seriously, if you’re in this family you have to love cheese.
He’s not walking yet but he’s starting to stand on his own and he crawls with great skill.
Jack has brought us so much joy and it just keeps getting better!
