Noonie went on a week long trip to PR, to visit my grandma (her mom) for her 84th birthday. We all missed her, but especially Grace. Friday morning when I asked Grace, "do you know what today is?" expecting her to say "Gymbo" in reference to Gymboree, she said, "Noonie" with a look of anticipation and longing. So when Monday rolled around and it was time to pick Noonie up at the airport, we made a little welcome sign to let her know how happy we were to see her. Grace loves to "cogu" (color with crayons - albeit if just dots) and "paint" (use markers) so she was super excited about the welcome sign.
As soon as I spotted Noonie at the terminal, I handed Grace the sign and told her, "look who's here!!!" Oh, it was priceless! She was so excited and started running toward Noonie, sign in hand, yelling, "Noonie, Noonie, Noonie" until Noonie scooped her up in her arms. Me being the sappy person that I am, I even had a few little tears of joy seeing them together. I wasn't the only one, even other travelers stopped to look and smile at the love between grandma and child!
I missed you, I'm so glad you're home! Here, I made this just for you. Do you like it? Did you miss me? When we dropped off Noonie, Grace just wanted to play and hang out outside with Noonie.
Catch me if you can! Checking out some of the neighbor's flowers. Check out her hand in response to my "be gentle, Grace". She was so careful when touching the flowers! I just love how toddlers squat so check things out. It is just the cutest!!! Grace was so excited with the cow toy Noonie brought her! Here's Grace checking out her new Moo Cow flashlight.
Welcome home, Noonie! We missed you!!
