Nawi here open gate for mother's car, laying back comfortably on brother's laps, ride lulls to sleep whirring like purr, engine stops he wakes alert in seconds, eyes lit wits about in an instant, crowd around scoop him swooping down, doesn't mind being held first enjoys it, wriggles free off he goes on his own, curiousity heightened runs wild in yard, keep up be sure he's out of harm's way, restriction uncalled restraining no need, baby roams all over plenty play, grandchild best everything you do interesting, am amazed witnessing change astounding.
