These videos demonstrate why taking Frankie to swing at the park became our favorite activity whenever we were together. He is so obviously delighted, how could we not be as well?

The one "word" or sound which Frankie says over and over again happens to sound very much like "Gram-pa!" This, of course, delights Grandpa Bob who, to his credit, tried very hard to help Frankie learn also to say, "Gram-ma!" By the time we left, Frankie was still very partial to "Gram-pa." (We only managed to record Frankie saying it once in each of these videos, though, so listen carefully--or just watch a video again if you miss it!)

On Frankie's first solo outing to the park with Grandpa and Grandma, he seemed to feel a bit tentative--until we put on his "cool" shades. Then, almost as if he thought we couldn't see him behind those "Foster Grants," he seemed to relax and enjoy himself. By late afternoon, when Mom was back from work, he was ready to warm up to us and began to show some of his little personality. (Be sure to check out the video below: "Drumming Up" Frankie's Friendship.)
