Look Who's Talking

We got a workout yesterday, but no it's not what you think...We didn't go to the gym or walk the tract. Our 19 month old great-grandson Dylan and his grandma Sandie came to visit.

Dylan has become quite proficient in babbling. You can say, "what?" to him and he repeats the exact same babble again. His grandma thinks it's Chinese or some other foreign language of some sort...But today when I asked him where the ball went, he threw his arms out to side, with palms up, and said, "I dunno?" It was so cute, and clearly a Kodak moment! His vocabulary consists of mama, dada & Val (for Valerie, his aunt)...and now, his cute posturing and a complete sentence. It was such an exciting moment for me, to hear his first sentence.

This is Dylan and his grandma Sandie. The first thing Dylan does, after he greets us, is to go get the cat's toys. The larger items he carries into the living room one by one.

Dylan in the rocking chair... that's older than his grandma...another of his favorite things to do.

Dylan carries the whole basket of the cat's toys into the living and dumps it he can get a better look at things. One thing that he does before he leaves, is to pick up every single toy and carry the basket back to where he found it...He is very well behaved...and does it with a smile.

Watch kitty comes Dylan!
He's all over the he's after a small ball that rolled under the table, or perhaps the kitty.

Be careful...Motherkitty gave me that pretty blue vase.

Here's Dylan bouncing on Brandon's big blue ball.

Just give Dylan the cat toys and he's content. Like most 19 month olds, he's curious about everything and loves to chase the cats. Jybow the kitty, thinks it's a game and wanders closer each time, and Dylan is still unable to catch her. The cat seems to like being chased by this little human...but she's never been caught either.

Your great grandson is so cute. My room mates grandchildren have adopted me as their Grandma Darling. The Darling coming from the four year old when she started to talk and didn't know what to call me - I became her 'darling'.

These pictures of Dylan are all so cute. You just want to pick him up and hug him. I forgot about the blue vase until you posted this picture. It looks pretty on your sideboard.

Thanks for posting these pictures. I know you and Jimmy enjoy all the kids so much and I'm glad the whole family enjoys coming to visit you two.

Your grandson Dylen is to cute and you are so good with that camera, catching his special Kodak moments. It looks like you had a lot of fun with him and got to hear his first words. A memory to keep forever.
