Hayden’s been really interested in looking at our photo albums lately. He will go through them and excitedly name the people in them, including himself (he started saying his own name recently). It was while looking through photos that I first heard him say “Brama” (for Grandma). John said that a couple of times he was looking through the photo albums with him while I wasn’t there and when he got to pictures of me holding him as a baby he would start swatting the baby and try to push it away from me. (This is what he tries to do to other kids/babies if I am holding them.)
Speaking of Brama, when Scott was visiting we went to lunch at a restaurant where Hayden and I often meet my mom for lunch. I was getting him out of his car seat and he recognized where we were because he started saying, ‘Brama! Brama!’ even though she wasn’t there and there wasn’t anyone around who looked like her.
