June 30, 2018 - Michael brought James to Nashville. It was the second time I have seen him, and the 3 of us had a good time. We went to the Parthenon, walked around and fed the ducks. James is a happy baby. He did not cry at all. I looked in his eyes and spoke softly. He smiled. I touched him in his baby buggy. Michael is a good father and says being a dad is the greatest thing that has happened in his life. We went to Pizza Perfect next door. Michael gave James a bottle, and he drank it. As they prepared to leave the Village, Michael told me to give James a kiss, and I kissed him on top of his head. I told Michael I will come down there.
November 3, 2018 - I attended James's first birthday party. We got along well. He was crawling around. I told Michael that in another year he will be chasing James all over the place. I found my way to Michael's house and back with no help, first time I have done that. I gave James the teddy bear I bought at Target. I wish Karen had been there.
July 20, 2019 - I dropped in on Michael and James. James gripped my finger after he got used to me. He is a good kid. He loves his daddy. James is walking all over the place now, and I am glad. The 3 of us went to the mall.
November 2, 2019 - I attended James's second birthday party. James actually turned 2 on November 3. He was active and running around. Michael had a plastic sliding board, and James and the kids loved sliding down it. Michael told James to say "Jim," and he came close. I gave Rebecca the information about the Pacific Life Annuity, which matures December 10, 2022.
November 28, 2019 - I went to Michael's house for Thanksgiving dinner. James was walking around. Rebecca is due around April 20. They are still unsure about the baby girl's name. Michael read some letters I wrote to Karen from Las Vegas and from Sweden. Parts were funny. Parts were heavy.
December 25, 2019 - I ate with Michael, Rebecca & James on Christmas Day.
