AA is lucky enough to have six living great-grandparents. Six! Over the weekend, he was able to meet his first two: my incredibly loving grandparents. And AA just happens to be their very first great-grandchild, too. Watching them meet warmed my heart in a way I didn't know was possible. Hearing them tell him how sweet and cute and wonderful he was brought tears to my eyes. Knowing how much they love him overwhelms my soul.
These are some of the people I will tell AA about for the rest of his life: my Grandma and Grandpa, his Mimi and Papa Ted. I will tell him how they spent the weekend reading him books and playing with his toys and talking to him about anything and everything and hugging him when he cried. I'll tell him that they spent 36 hours in a car just to see him face-to-face. I'll tell him his every smile made them so, so happy. I'll tell him that's what love is.
