FC: Groff Family 2010
1: This book is dedicated to Jaidyn (the apple of our eyes). You are growing up so fast...we wish you could stay small forever, but we are enjoying watching you grow everyday & develop a great little personality. Since you still weren't talking much this year, everyday was like a game of charades...you told stories mumbling & always with hand gestures...you were too funny, & you understood every word anyone said. You even understood Polish b/c Nana spoke Polish to you the days she watched you. This was a big year...Mommy & Daddy got married & you stayed with Gee & Nana for 10 days while we went to Hawaii. You were used to being with them though b/c you stayed with them during the week while we worked...they both spoiled you rotten. You were still a very good baby & even started to potty train yourself. You were so smart. We love you more than words can say & you are truly a blessing in our lives everyday.

25: Your 1st trip to the New York State Fair. You were amazed by the giraffe... because you still weren't talking much, you'd get really excited and point to you neck, stick your tongue out and act like you were eating...this was your way of telling everyone you saw the tall giraffe and got to feed it carrots.
