A Tribute to GG and a Lead-In to Ian's Dance Party

Little I loves dancing. It is one of the most entertaining things he does. I've tried numerous times to capture Little I shaking his thang, but to no avail--he usually spots the camera and comes running to look at pictures of GG, which he knows are on my camera. Like this:

So, that reminded me, I've got a great video from our last visit to see GG and Grandpa that is long overdue to be posted. Little I loves to watch the video and repeat "GG, GG."

Now that I've built it up, I'm going to leave you hanging. You will have to check back later for the post of Little I getting his groove on. I promise it will be worth it. But for now, I'll leave you with this parting shot--it's the one that Little I insists upon viewing when he spots my camera. For added symmetry, it is a picture of Little I looking at GG's camera. We can't wait to see you again GG!
