As he and my mom flipped through the pages, he gave a running commentary on my “wee baw heed, perfectly roond” and my “cheeky face, exactly the same; ye canny have changed a bit!” as my mom peppered his monologue with, “Look how cute she was!” And then Mr. Shakes burst out in laughter.
Mr. Shakes: Look at this one!
Mama Shakes: Ohmigod, hahahaha. What a face!
Mr. Shakes: What a face!
Shakes: Let me see it.
Mr. Shakes: How oold was she here?
Mama Shakes: Two years. She always sat in that booster chair on the floor, like it was her own little chair. So serious.
Shakes: Come on!
Mr. Shakes: That expression! Hahahaha.
Mama Shakes: I know, hahahaha.
Mr. Shakes: Lookit, she’s making the same face right noo! Hahahaha.
I finally grabbed the book and looked at the picture. And yes, I was indeed making precisely the same face.
