Upon arriving to the gathering place, I met cousins I've never seen before. It was shocking to see the house quickly fill up with about 20 people, including chilldren, who were also my cousins, and I guess Gideon's cousins too.
Alexa, Gideon and I had lots of fun.
One day Gideon will realize the extent and history of his family -- part of his legacy.
For now, I'm just hoping for the day that he verbally recognizes that I am his daddy. Sure, he says "dada" already, but it's probably because he thinks it is a funny word when I say it, as demonstrated by his distinct smile.
