He drove up in his topless yellow Jeep Wrangler wearing Carerra sunglasses the first time I met Dean. Among other things, it was his passion for life that I fell in love with. In those early newlywed days, I am certain neither one of us ever thought about being a grandparent. But, today he is Papa.
Papa likes babies when they are no longer "breakable." With her buff baby arms, I think Olivia has reached that point. Now he will have many things to share with her.
Papa will teach her gardening and his process of growing yummy food, then he'll introduce her to the busy bees making honey in the back yard. There are so many things to teach Olivia, he'll have to get started soon...
but not today, she's attempting to master the sippy cup.
It's still so amazing that our baby has a baby... and another baby on the way. With so many dreamy childhood days ahead for all of them it seems like they'll never end.
