Bubbe Subs for DaddySubmitted by bubbe on Wed, 01/18/2012 - 7:53pm
This past weekend I came to take care of Maya and Hailey while Mommy was working and Daddy was away at a conference in New York.
We had a grand time playing and eating, going to and from school, and getting a new big bed and sheets for Maya.
Maya spends a great deal of her free time drawing letters and patterns. The letters are all of those in the names of family members. The patterns are very intricate formations of dots and squares. I saw a significant improvement in her skills over the couple of days that I was with her.
Hailey is talking up a storm. Her teacher was very excited to report that she heard her clearly saying a full sentence, "Go to sleep Baby." when she covered one of the baby dolls.
Christmas, Hanukkah and MoreSubmitted by bubbe on Sun, 01/01/2012 - 12:58pm
Now that you live in Michigan, the only way to see everyone is to get in the car and hit the road. And so you did with a drive to Pittsburgh for Hanukkah, on to Philadelphia for Christmas and then back through by way of your aunt's farm and home again.
It was great to have you stay here. You created your own little space with an air mattress behind the sofa. You had lots of fun with play dough, visits, a smart haircut and even scored with my jellybean container to take home.
Come back soon. We love you,
