Someone went from a tiny baby to twelve just like that! This grandma wants to keep him little and safe forever. Possibly it has something to do with the year of his birth, perhaps it is because he is the “baby” the youngest of the grands, and maybe it is a little bit of both.
I have suggested to his mother that she do something to stop his growth, but she keeps feeding him.
His arm is normal again at least that was his last report to me. I turned his wrist this way and that and pressed here and there to make sure he didn’t have any sore spots or abnormalities that I could see.
He is a delightful child who will talk your ear off if it is just me and him one on one. He likes Orville Redenbacher’s Ultimate Butter Popcorn…when ever he is here, he opens the cupboard and says “Oh good you still have my popcorn.” He has decided that he doesn’t like chocolate milk in a carton. He likes to mix his own using Hershey’s syrup. He only likes long spaghetti, recently he wanted spaghetti and I tried to pawn off some elbow macaroni as being the exact same thing..no dice. He accompanied me to the nearby small town for the “right” looking noodle. He also likes spaetzle ( a homemade noodle or dumpling) and will eat a heaping bowl full and go back for seconds.
He is getting more handsome all the time..and taller!
Happy Birthday Adam:)
