This weekend, E and I took a little last minute trip to visit the Nana and the Papa. Of course, in my haste to get packed up, I managed to take enough stuff to last us at least 4 months, but forgot my camera. Sometimes I hate having an iPhone. It makes it so easy to snap pics here and there, but I always forget to take my camera anywhere with me. Thank goodness for instagram.
Nevertheless, camera or no camera, we had a blast. I just love to watch Evalyn develop such a strong bond with her grandparents, even though she doesn’t get to see them all too often. They are, without a doubt, some of her favourite peeps.
And can you blame her? Why wouldn’t they be her favourite? She can boss them around. They listen. And obey. “Nana sit down now. Nana stairs, please? Nana play toys. Nana, ball, please. Nana, side, please. Nana? Chips? Please?”. It hasn’t taken her too long to figure out that she has them wrapped around her teensy weensy fingers and use that to her advantage.
This time while we were visiting, we (ahem, Nana and Eva) spent an awful lot of time playing downstairs and looking out the windows for “sqwills” and “wobbins”. And, of course, time was spent hugging, feeding, petting and putting pretties on the ceramic puppy that sits beside the kitchen window.
We also got to have lunch with Great Grandma, do some shopping and go out for a girl’s lunch.
Most importantly, I learned a very crucial lesson. Do not set up the pack and play close to Nana’s dresser. Or else you will have to peek in and play “I Spy” to find your sleeping toddler amongst the mess of clothes that have been flung every which way from every single drawer that was in reach.
Parting ways with Nana and Papa is always a tough go but we know it won’t be long until we see them again and get to have more fun adventures.
