One of the things that I love most in the world is when Ashley or Heather tells me about how their kids think or talk of me when I’m not around. Sometimes they tell me over the phone, but more often I’ll just get a text during the day letting me know how “Uncle Jason” came up that day.
I should have started writing them down ages ago — and it’s too late to go back and get the messages that were saved on my old phone. But here are the most recent notes about things that Teya has said while playing:

Teya singing at the table (avoiding eating broccoli…) “Uncle Jason, Uncle Mark, Uncle Dad, Uncle Heather, Uncle Brynn, Uncle Teya . . . . How about Uncle Jordan!”

Teya found a pair of glasses that apparently look like yours . . . She keeps holding them out, saying, “Come get your glasses Uncle Jason! Come get them when you get home from work!”

[After receiving a package I’d sent with stuffed animals that I’d bought for the kids when I was in Guatemala earlier this year]
Teya has finally figured out what “present” means . . . . She was so excited!
