"Gamma, watch this! Gamma, watch me!" - Brooks, to my Aunt Teresa.
My Aunt Teresa, cousin Sarah, and her two kids arrived on Friday evening for a weekend visit. Brooks will probably only "remember" Grandma through pictures. He identifies her as "Gamma" in photos we share.
His other grandma is "Nana," and he otherwise does not associate any other older women as a grandma. So it was really endearing to listen to him call my Aunt Teresa - my mom's older sister - "Gamma" over and over again during their visit. They certainly resemble one another, and Brooks took no cues from anyone.
Aunt Teresa told him, "Brooks, I would be HONORED to be your Grandma." Ah, my heart.
