The Not So Little Guy
I've had people tell me over the years how much he looks like Daniel and I've been able to see it most of the time, but he still looks just like Grayson to me. Occasionally I see a flash, so very clear, of Daniel when he was young, and it just jumps out at me. His appearance isn't the most amazing part though. Its his behavior. He was only 5 when Daniel passed away, so there wasn't a lot of time for him to pick up Daniel's habits.....however, he is his father's son in so many ways it makes me laugh out loud.
My little guy is always right, knows everything about everything (even if he really knows nothing), and will argue a point until all other parties give up. He talks like him, has facial expressions like him, sticks his tongue out when he's concentrating like him, sits like him, etc. He is Grayson, his own person with unique qualities, but he is definitely Grayson Dippel. A chip off the old block, for sure!
Happy birthday to my G, it's been an honor to be his mom and watch him grow up into such a great kid.
