Our little corner of northeast Ohio has been full of sunshine for two days now, and I really love this! It was so gloomy for too long! Yesterday my daughter was helping her son’s kindergarten class make Valentine’s Day boxes and I baby sat for Stephen who was awake all but the last fifteen minutes of our time together, and happy nearly all the time……He seems an amazingly sunny little guy who is easily coaxed into smiles. If I talk to him, especially if I say his favorite phrase now which is “Gah…Gah”, (or if his mother sings a Lady Gaga song) or if I sing Hungarian folk songs or play peek a boo or pretend I’m about to tickle him, he smiles his million dollar smile. I hope he will respond to life this way forever! Above is a picture of my son Andy having an earnest conversation with his nephew who is clearly enjoying every minute of it.
Here is another picture from Alice of her boys together. More sunshine for Nana.
