A Special Visitor!!

[Adorable Janie Boo!]

We had a little visitor over the weekend -- the perfect guest!

She brought her own food, her own sleeping accommodations, her own playthings. All she needed was a little space, a few diaper changes and some yummy bottles. Can you guess who it was? Yes, little Miss Janie Boo -- our granddaughter!

[Sweet Janie]

She arrived Saturday afternoon for playtime with Mimi (moi) and Maddy and Muffy while her parents attended a football game. She loved Maddy and wanted to touch and hold her silky hair -- which Maddy generously allowed -- even though Janie's grip got a little tight. She said hello to silly Muffy. Muffy was delighted to have some new little hands to lick and tickle!

[Philip and his baby girl]

She has the biggest blue eyes and sweetest disposition - there's always a smile on her adorable little face. She likes to chat and babble at whoever will listen. She already knows how to say Dada -- in Chinese, no less -- as she calls Philip, Baba! Yes, we do believe she is a genius! She's 7 months old now and quite the little crawler. She babbles and blows bubbles -- we are blessed to have such a beautiful and sweet baby girl in our family!

[Catherine & Janie -- beautiful Mom and beautiful baby]

The weather was perfect for some outside time, so I dug out a jogging stroller that I bought when Maddy was 4 (Not sure what I was thinking buying a stroller for a 4-year old!).
Maddy was actually getting too big for it, so it was like new. It was perfecto and such a smooth ride! While Maddy played at a friend's house, Janie and I went for a couple walks. I don't know if it was me, the scenery or the fact that her little tummy was full, but she fell asleep both times. It was such a treat for us to have her and her parents visit.
Thanks for the wonderful visit, Philip, Catherine & Janie. Come back soon!!

I love that picture of Philip & his daughter! They are is something about the way is is "almost" in the frame - cause that how is really is in parenting. Hmm. I think a beautiful moment was caught there!

I can see why you had fun with this visitor!
