Aurora came for a visit this weekend. She's 19 months old now and is starting to talk. She's good at repeating simple words like MaMa, baby, baba. She sings songs like row, row, row your boat.
When she first got here, she wasn't so happy about her MaMa leaving and stood by the door with all her important things. The baby and her blankie. Poor thing. I felt bad that she wasn't excited to be here.
But she soon came around when I showed her one of her favorite things to look at. My Jim Shore cat collection. Ohhhh, Kitty, she says. I don't let her touch them cause their tails might snap off so I bend each one over and she gives a kiss.
Another high point of her visit is getting introduced to the Button Box. That was an after bath treat for her. She loved loved loved playing with the buttons. I thought this would be a nice relaxing quiet time before bedtime. After a half an hour, she was still so excited, she was shaking.
This button box has seen a lot of use over the past 10 years. I have bought many cute little buttons over the years to put as little treasures for the kids to find, but somehow, there is only one little cherry button and one little strawberry button left. Aurora didn't care, she loved swishing her hand around in the buttons.
So, Grammie has a good excuse to buy more buttons at Fabricville.
