Tuesday we decided to kick back a bit and enjoy a day of play at home. We woke late and were treated to a quick visit from Wela and M3’s SIL Jane. I was so excited to meet Jane as I’ve heard about her for years and felt like I already knew her! Thanks for popping over Jane. It was a treat to meet you!! As Wela and Jane headed home Hannah looks at me and said, ‘Wela!’ So sweet! We quickly called her cell and left her a message of Hannah saying her name. She and Wela got along like a house on fire and Hannah loved to dance with her. It was their thing! We love you Wela and BobBob!! See you next time.
After they left we continued to laze around in our pj’s until after lunch and just enjoyed being together. M3 was busy with laundry and packing for our upcoming Utah trip and I caught up on some laundry too.
Ro and Ree taking swimming lessons Tuesday afternoon so we donned our bathing suits and headed off to the pool. Once again they amazed us by swimming lap after lap of the pool! I kept saying to M3, ‘They’re just 4 right???’ Hannah napped by the pool and then she and I went for a swim with the girls when their lessons were over. Another one of her new words this trip is, ‘pool!’
Hannah and I were able to Skype with her Nana and Papa in the evening which was a treat for both of us! Travel is wonderful but it sure is nice to have a touch from home too. The best of both worlds!
The evening was spent with more play and packing. I love to watch my little girl emerging as we’re spending more time here. In this pic I turned around and she had climbed up onto one of the girl’s little stools and you can see how proud of herself she is! I have a little stool at home and it looks like we might begin using it much earlier than I’d ever thought. *sniff!*
At first she was stuck to me like glue and now she’ll even go so far as to venture into the back yard alone with the big girls to play with the sand table or sidewalk chalk. I cannot say enough about how amazing Ro and Ree are with her! So gentle, loving and caring while playing with her and it warms this mommy’s heart!!
I wanted to capture these shots too of Hannah playing with some of her favourite toys at Auntie M3’s. She pulled (rather than pushed) this baby stroller around all week.
She also found this adorable little gingerbread apron in a drawer in the kitchen and would bring it to me to put on her. So sweet! Hey K1 – Wonder if they might have something like these on Etsy? LOL!!
