The Best Little Boy...

Desmond is three years old, and is the best grandchild anyone could be lucky enough to have!  He is sunny, energetic, and curious about everything.  His conversations are priceless and precious.  He speaks in full paragraphs, sings to himself, and asks amazing questions. Lucky me, I get to be with him several times a week for special grandma time.   I always regret not writing down some of the things my children said when they were little, so I will take a minute here to record these few things about him.  Desmond's vocabulary is quite huge, but he still says "potooter" for computer, "fananic" for mechanic, and "hoppatopter" for helicopter!  He recently asked Daniella (whom he calls Zuzu) "Zuzu, is Zuma your daughter?"  Zuma is our rat terrier dog!  And one day after we came back from Australia he was telling me all about something and I said "Wow, Desmond, you don't miss much!"  He instantly reponded "I missed you, Keema, you were gone such a long time."  Heart meltingly sweet, this boy.

What a lovely post! Great that you wrote it down and good to remember these things that the little ones say. Keema and Zuzu-- such wonderful names!
