Baby is growing up so fast. So bittersweet. When I facebooked his mom while I was in Jamaica, she commented on how much more babbling he is doing. The night that we left he showed us how he can say "apple" which is like "A-bmm" and now almost two weeks later, he can say it quite clearly. Every fruit is an apple, but it's pretty cute. He says 'Auntie' really well too and that is also very cute. He understands so much, and communicates really well, even without saying all the words.
I missed him way too much when we went away and I know that is something that I need to get over, but he is at that precious age of changing and learning new things every day. When I met him at the park yesterday, he smiled, waved hello and clapped his hands and that is just a wonderful reaction to receive. When he met us at the airport, he had just woken up and smiled very shyly but he was very happy when I reached out to give him a hug. I just love being his grandma.......and he still makes me smile every single day!
