Gabe Phone Home

During this new "heightened awareness" that I have written about, Gabe has discovered the telephone.  Up until now, he has rarely shown any interest whatsoever in phones.  Then suddenly out of the blue, he has wanted to talk on the phone.  Well, maybe not so much "talk" since we know Gabe is not too conversational, but he listens intently to the person on the other side of the phone and even answers questions when asked.  He brought me the phone several times on Tuesday when he was home sick and said, "Call Daddy."  He even dialed the phone number himself as I called out the numbers.  He had to be heavily prompted, but he would say, "Hi, Daddy!"  He listened as Bruno talked to him and answered questions when asked.  It was very sweet!  What a great feeling for Bruno who has never experienced his son calling him at work as most fathers of (almost) six year-olds have.  

Gabe called Bruno last night while Bruno was driving home from a meeting.  Bruno was able to ask him what he wanted for dinner and Gabe replied, "tacos" (of course) and then told Bruno that he wanted TWO tacos!  Gabe placed his first "to go" order!
