Day 288

22 08 2010

Daddy’s friend Darren was in town today.  He was here because he had a funeral to go to.  That is sad.  But I was happy that he came to visit.  He hasn’t seen me since December! (day 45)  I was much smaller then – I fell asleep on his arm like a monkey in a tree.  He said he’s known for getting babies to sleep.  Whenever he is somewhere with a baby, and they are cranky and fighting sleep, if you give them to him – he’ll make them fall asleep.  When we got home from the diner, I was being cranky and fighting sleep – he totally put me to sleep!!

This was my day to hang out with the boys!  After Darren left, we had to get ready to go to a birthday party!  It was for Paul’s son Patrick.  Paul is daddy’s friend from work.  I couldn’t get a picture with Patrick cause he was busy playing and having fun, it was his party you know – so mommy took a picture of me with Paul.  Paul and his wife Kelly have a daughter that is one month younger then me – she’s super cute but we didn’t get to play together at the party.  Hopefully we can do a play date soon.  I like play dates.

Day 46

23 01 2010

Today is mommy’s birthday and she wanted me to meet my grandpa – he’s sick and in a nursing home and it’s not easy to take a baby there!   But since it was all she wanted for her birthday, she worked it out that my grandpa could come down from his floor and meet me in an area away from everyone.  My grandpa has something called Senile Dementia and it makes it hard for him to understand what’s going on around him – Mommy was worried he wouldn’t understand that I was his grandson, that’s cause sometimes he forgets that mommy is his daughter.  She was right, he didn’t get it but he did get that mommy has a son now so she was very happy about that.  It was nice to meet another grandpa.  According to my mommy I’m very lucky because I have TWO grandfather’s on her side of the family – besides Grandpa Paul, I also have a Grandpa Richie.  He’s married to Grandma Candy.  I don’t have a picture of him yet in my book but mommy will fix that soon.  And then there is Grandpa Sal.  So you see, I have THREE grandpa’s!!
