Slow down, you move too fast
Abe is looking like a kid lately. It's thrilling to hear him stringing together his 60+ word vocabulary into phrases (yes, we made a list), but man, oh man, kid, slow it down.
Abe's middle name is for my maternal grandfather, my Grandaddy, who I can't write about without a lump in my throat. He's been in heaven since 2001, and I still miss him like crazy. Abe never got to know him here. Something about Abe's expression in this photo reminds me of Grandaddy. I've seen Grandaddy make this face many times, something in the way he's holding his lips and furrowing his eyebrows in concentration and possible slight disapproval of something going on in the distance.
He's taking it all in, just like Grandaddy. And I know what Grandaddy would say about this boy of ours: "He looks just like me."
