Last Last week wrap-up: Fun times with Jeremie!!!

*The events of this post occurred last Saturday*So last Saturday, I took my cousins Jake and Jeremie to the motorcycle show in Grand Rapids. We had a fun day seeing custom motorcycles and getting as much free stuff as we could from the vendors. Afterward, Jake and Jeremie were invited to go to the GR minor league hockey game with their other cousins Matt and Jenn. I guess Jeremie was tired and doesn't like hockey that much because he said he didn't want to go to the game. So Katherine and I invited him to spend the evening with us.

We had a yummy dinner, Katherine made a new recipe: Mexican eggplant. Then we watched our The Incredibles DVD. It was a lot of fun. The great thing about the evening was that it was the first time that Jeremie really was comfortable and interested in Lyla. At previous family gatherings he hadn't really engaged the baby, but Saturday he was looking at her, talking to her, holding her hand, reciting lines from the movie to her, smiling at her... it was great.

The next day we went over to my aunt and uncle's for lunch and Jeremie again was super excited to see the baby. It was awesome!

For those of you who know Jeremie, you know what a great kid he is. His enjoyment of life is such a joy to be around. Seeing him light up when he's around Lyla just made my heart explode. Tell me after looking at this pictures and videos that yours doesn't do the same.
