GF update

So things are progressing apace with my Gentleman Friend.

A couple of days ago a box arrived in the mail. Wooden box with fabulous chocolates! Yep, from him.

Sunday he came over when ds was visiting to set up my tree. Arrived with a huge bouquet and a wrapped box, which contained a lovely crystal vase. His remark to ds, "As you can see, I am courting your mother."

He has made a wonderful impression with my kids. He is so present in chatting with them, asks just the right questions to draw them out without making them feel like they are being grilled.

He also brought dsil (who is very hard of hearing, but uses no assistive devices) a spare hearing aid. (Apparently he bought this hearing aid when he lost his usual one. He then found the older one and likes it better than the one he bought, so it is unused). Dsil is wearing it a few hours a day trying to get used to all the background noises, and dd and his son N. are just tickled that they can talk to him when his back is turned and he can hear them. That fact is encouraging him to wear the aid more. He even showed it to his dad (also deaf, and actually wears his hearing aids) and said how surprised he was at everything he was missing without hearing aids. His dad mentioned that he can probably get a pair of aids for a reasonable price online, and dsil is considering that. I think it will make a huge difference for him if he is able to hear!

GF and I are going to see Little Women the day after Christmas. And he has joined the book discussion group I go to. He has wonderful insights and is a really good addition to our group!

Who knows where this is going....but so far, it's very good!

He is very good with Stella. She tolerates him, which is high praise, considering that itís Stella...

I've said it before but it sounds as if you're living in a Hallmark movie! I'm so happy for you! Soak up these "courting" days... you deserve them!
Merry Christmas.

What a wonderful Christmas present for all of us- a heartwarming update about your gentleman friend!

Sounds like he's genuinely interested in you and your family.

I hope the new year brings many more good times for the both of you, and many more updates that you post for us!

I LOVE the hearing aid story--so thoughtful--and great that your DSIL is using and may be changing his mind! (it's amazing what we miss when we aren't aware....)
