In one week, Taylor Reese Goddard will be 16 months old. Fastest 16 months this papa has ever experienced. Actually the three hours or so I had with her on this Saturday morning moved rather quickly as well.
Kathy went to a wedding shower and left me in charge of our one and only grandbaby girl. Taylor and I decided to take a field trip to Dunkin Donuts this morning. Thanks to DVD technology in automobiles, Taylor was completed satisfied on the way over. Taylor got rather wide eyed when we got there and she spotted all the donuts on the shelf.
We enjoyed a bagel and a donut together. I thought a cup of coffee might be too hot for Taylor so I got her a coke instead.
As you might be able to tell I forgot to brush her hair. But I noticed plenty of other folks at Dunkin that didn't have their hair brushed either. And Taylor didn't seem to mind at all.
We got back home and played in the back yard, in the front hard, on the deck, on the back porch and of course in the room with all her toys. I just followed her wherever she had the urge to go. Our oldest, David, stopped by the house on the way to join his bride in South Georgia. As you can see, I was able to get a quick pic of Taylor and her two uncles.
I have said here before that I am a 20 minute babysitter. After that things start going downhill. But today I turned into a 3 hour babysitter. I never even had to call my wife to ask her when she was getting home.
I have to tell you, I loved every 182 minutes of it too.
I call it Taylor time.
