my first phone conversation with Sebastian

Steve and Sebastian went out to Long Island to visit Grandma and Grandpa Raab yesterday afternoon. I stayed home to get some work done after my spring break vacation. They called me from the car on the way home, and I had my first real, back-and-forth, truly informative phone conversation with Seb.

First he told me about the traffic. That they were stuck because there were too many cars. But that they were on the big road (the highway) and there were lots of trucks.

Then he told me about his visit. He told me he saw Grandma and Bampa at their house. He gave them big hugs. He rode his bike outside. He sang happy birthday to Bampa and blew out the candles on the cake.

I asked if cousin Rio was there, and he said no, she had to stay home. I asked if he had fun, and he said "Hmm", which is what he says for yes.

I thought maybe Steve was prompting him from the front seat, but he wasn't saying a thing. All of this, totally unprompted! It was amazing!
