Well last week we had the pleasure of a visit from the grandson! We picked him up from his house in Anderson, SC. As we pull in the driveway... all you can see is this great big smile on his cute face. Before I could get out of the car, he runs into
my arms! After sufficient hugs to Gramma... He starts to yell " Grampa... Grampa" and off to jump into his Grampa's awaiting arms!
He asks his mom for his shoes.... he was ready to go!
Once in the car... packed and ready to go... Damien starts talking! Uh.. Oh.. Jim and I look at each other, both thinking... What the heck is he talking about? Time to learn "Damienese" again! Last visit... it took us a couple of days to start to understand
his toddler speak, but then he didn't have that big of a vocabulary!
Finally arriving back home, he settles in , and was so glad that his "woom" was still the same! He runs around and around in his room... shouting " mine, mine, mine !" Now this is a new developement, and I'm hoping that his sweet disposition and the ability
to share has not been lost!
We decided to take Damien to the park for a cookout, three guesses on the main course... Yep.. Hot Dogs! We had a great time! He found a big red balloon behind the fence, that gramma had to figure out a way to get , what Damien called a... red ball! Mission
The next morning... we awoke to bwooon... bwooon! He grabs my hand a drags me to his room! " bwoon" he says.... I respond by saying what's a bwoon.. trying to pronounce it just like he did.. Now it's hard enough to find lost toys in his room, even if you
know what you are looking for! He repeats this word...louder, slower and more drawn out... as if he were talking to someone that can't understand english!
We looked and looked, me lifting up numerous finds, is this a bwooon? Nooooooooooo, noooooo bwooon! after searching his room we decided to look in the living room... in a high pitched "BWOON" he runs to the corner and holds up a barely, filled with air,
By the end of our visit, Jim and I had almost,... I said almost,... learned Damienese!
We spot the red balloon!
Just one more time Grampa!
That's a big chicken!
Back with his bff... Audrie! And Yes we still know how to share!!!!
