Grand kid Update:
When we have both kids at the apartment, Jim takes Benjamin on a Streetcar Adventure (usually to Target for a toy!) during Lilia’s nap. So yesterday they head out and Benjamin says, as they see a streetcar car pull up in front of the building, “Grandpa, is that the Streetcar we are supposed to take?” Grandpa says, “oh no… We won’t make it!” With that Benjamin yells, “Run, Grnadpa….RUN!” And with that he takes off! (I would have loved a video of this!) So …… grandpa runs yelling, “Don’t get on without me!” They get to the door and it closes in front of them. And the next second, it opens again for them! High fives around!!
I’m noting the date – two weeks ago Lilia started to say, Ben-Ja-min, instead of the cute, sweet little baby word, Bam-mem. There goes baby talk, one word at a time!
And look at how this 2 yo holds her crayon!! How ’bout that!!?
