So THAT'S What They're For!
This Thanksgiving, my dad got to come visit us. He hadn't seen James since we were in Oklahoma in June, and back then, James was still pretty content to stick very close to me and Ben and just watch everyone else from the safe harbor of our arms.
However, a couple of weekends ago, Grandpa Clint and Grandma Jane came out to visit, and James had such a good time with them, he thought maybe he'd drag this Grandpa out to play too.
I think it's safe to say James has figured out the grandparents thing. Maybe he doesn't realize that these people are actually the parents of his parents. But he does know that grandparents? Those are the cool people who hang on his every word, who play with him endlessly, who think everything he does is amazing and fun.
I think he likes the idea.
