4 years, 9 months.
While we were in California last month for our official annual family vacation, Grandma (Mommy’s Mommy) began making a quilt from your t-shirts, including one also of Mommy’s that she wore while you were just a baby.
Grandma finished it last week and it arrived in the mail for you to enjoy. You’ve slept with it every night since then.
You and Mommy had off school and work on Friday so Mommy took you to the Pfunky Griddle in Nashville; a place we would frequent back when you were much younger and we lived closer to that side of the city.
As you can see from these pictures, you were very happy to be there! You got to make your very own chocolate chip pancakes, right there at the table.
It’s one of those quirky Nashville restaurants that tourists should definitely check out while visiting here. Lucky for you, the car ride there wasn’t all that long.
Friday night after I got off work, we drove to Alabama to visit my side of the family.
Amazingly, we didn’t shoot any videos, as I’m still finishing up our Family in a Camry series.
However, using my tripod and self-timer, I took a few “practice portraits” of our family. I say that because next month when we visit them again, I’ll be taking our official “matching ages” pictures, in which Mommy and I will be 34 years old, Aunt Dana and Uncle Andrew will be 31, you and your cousin Calla will both be 4, and so on…
What I learned from taking this practice portrait is that next time I need to zoom in after I take each photo to be sure everyone is looking at the camera.
I didn’t notice until the next day after we left, that you were looking in the wrong direction.
