So today all of my family celebrates Waylon's second birthday from across the mountains. It won't be long before he is the size of a good bear and will be able to carry his parents over here on his back just to say hello. The boy is a mini-tank now. Even though the comparisons may have been different, I'll bet that there have been plenty of proud grandparents bragging about the children of their loin the same way in the Native world.
Somehow, the world is just a better place through a grandchild's eyes!
