Lately we have had some good times noticing some of the connections our little guy is making. The other night for example, I had just returned home from a quick trip to the grocery store. As I opened the door and walked into the house, my little guy came running toward me yelling, "Daddy, daddy, daddy!" (mind you, he was home with Dad while I was out shopping)
But it gets better.
A few weeks ago in church, The King sat right next to our neighbor (the gentleman in this photo)
for quite a bit of the meeting. They seemed like best buds. I was a little surprised by The King's boldness in seeking out a new friend, as he has been known to be a bit on the shy side. But I was grateful he had such a great distraction for the meeting.
The next week at church, we were walking down the hall. Not too far from his eye-level there was a photo posted on the wall with this gentleman in the picture. The King stopped at the photo, pointed right at his new friend and happily pronounced, "PaPa". So, I now understood the situation ... in his mind, The King wasn't making a new friendship, he was just hanging out with his grandpa at church!
This is his grandpa:
What do you think?
I guess the glasses make them almost twins! What a funny thing for a little guy.
But, I have an even better one ...
it happened the other night as we were watching Shaun White:
receive the Gold medal.
The King looks up at the TV with a HUGE smile on his face,
points, and then says (with great clarity),
Yes, that would be my sister, Aunt Debbie ...
I picked myself up from rolling on the floor laughing and called my sister to congratulate her on her olympic win!
We are so proud!
