Grammie Days

One of the reasons I started this blog was to keep a record for my children in the hopes that one day, they would enjoy clicking through the pages and exploring moments of their young lives that they may not remember. I hope that one day, years from now, I find them reading these words and fully feeling the love with which they're written.

With that in mind, it occured to me that something big was missing... Grammie Days! Fiona spends two days a week with my mom while I work from home. During her last Grammie Day, I asked my mom, Dona, if she would take along my camera and document some of their time together. One of their favorite stops is the local library (The same one I frequented as a child. Yep, I grew up in the Hereford Zone!). And this might be one of my favorite pictures of all time...

What a grump! Despite the melancholy look, Fiona actually loves the library. She loves being read to, she loves leafing through the pages pointing out images she recognizes (like caterpillars!) and she loves pretending to read aloud to whoever will listen.

She and my mom have certain favorite toys that they play with at each visit.

When I saw this picture below, I laughed because this is the kind of thing I allow Fiona to do that sometimes I get funny looks from other parents for. I love that both my mom and I have the same attitude. "What?! She can read her book wherever she pleases!"

I feel so lucky that my mom and my little girl have this time together. Looking at these pictures made me tear up a bit at the beauty of it... The two most important girls in my life being so very, very important to eachother.

Ugh, and now I'm crying again. Love you, Mom.
