What is it about babies that shifts everything I say to the third person? It is like they have a third person suggestion field around them. Before: “I need to get another cup of coffee so I can remember my name.” After: “Dad needs to get another cup of coffee so he can remember your [...]
Grandma Pat and Grandpa Jere (a.k.a. Mom and Dad) trucked out from Michigan for the day Saturday (because they are crazy like that). We got a chance to try out Mom’s new fancy camera, and hang at the park Saturday morning, before we headed over to Raj and Suzanne’s house.
