So much to be thankful for


Last week, we flew to Las Vegas to introduce Teddy to his grandparents, great-grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins. We presented Teddy to his grandma wearing a black Onesie printed with the words “What happens at Grandma’s stays at Grandma’s” in the same font as the well-known Las Vegas tagline. Two friends saw this Onesie and couldn’t pass it up, so we brought both, figuring we’d have Teddy wear it two different days. Turns out, we needed that second one soon after we arrived 😉

Mike’s parents were wonderfully grandparently toward Teddy: Grandma Ginni was frequently seen with Teddy bouncing on her knee or asleep on her shoulder, and Grandpa Dan, former VP of HR and “get ‘er done” guy, showed us a whole new side of himself, holding Teddy in his arms and talking gibberish in the hopes of soliciting coos. Teddy happily obliged. Teddy’s aunt squealed over him, and his great-grandpa beamed while holding him. We were thrilled to see the whole family take to him so whole-heartedly.

We enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving buffet at Mike’s grandparents’ assisted living home, with most of Mike’s family at the table, including all three great-grandchildren, who attracted much attention from the other residents. We got pictures of the whole family, including one of the four generations of Krugers.

Teddy and his daddy, granddaddy, and great-granddaddy

In the afternoon, Teddy looked on during great-grandpa’s bingo game. I can neither confirm nor deny whether he distracted any players from achieving a bingo.

Teddy is such a social guy! He was handed around the family all afternoon and remained super chill, only occasionally granting peeks of his dimples. Such a blessing. We’re so thankful for our little guy!
