So much did the youngest PatriotNephewWest like the hat his favorite uncle bought him that he tried it on without taking off the price tag:
Then, he and his Mommy took me for a walk through Golden Gate park. And every time I looked at him, he responded with a smile.
It’s amazing how much bigger he’s gotten since the last time I saw him (back in February) — when he hadn’t yet learned how to smile.
UPDATE: As my sister wished me good night, she said that her son’s smile makes “all the sleepless nights worth it. I’ll just say that the smile more than pays for the cost of the trip and having to wait nearly an hour to make it to the toll booth for the Bay Bridge. I sure got lucky in the nephew (and niece) department. (And not just this one–his cousins are all pretty amazing.)
