Grandpa Diary #80

Dear Kaylee,

Grandpa is going to start being more consistent. Once a week. That’s how frequent I will be with our blog posts. Once a week.

The reason I put a time frequency on the blog is a simple fact. Soon a little sister is going to show up and I will be waxing eloquent about her, frequently. So, Kaylee and Kaylee’s sister…Can’t wait…

Right now, I am enjoying Kaylee present. You are growing mentally, physically, and spiritually daily. You are especially focused when it comes to puzzles and people.

Language, of course, is the the most fun of all. Whether it is you speaking new phrases or me teaching new words, we are having a blast!

I especially love how you told me not to eat until we prayed first…

Kaylee, you are a delight to be sharing life with…Thank you, Lord…Let’s see what comes up tomorrow…


Grandpa Diary #75

Dear Kaylee,

What the heck are you saying? Your mommy sent me a video of you saying, “Appo du du.” She said you kept on saying it. Sure enough, when you came over this morning, you looked at me smiled and said, “Appo du du.”

We haven’t figured out what you are trying to say, but you seem to enjoy it.

Maybe you are just saying, “My, but isn’t my Grandpa handsome.”

Appo du du to you,
