My mom left this morning to fly back to Virginia after a great five-day visit! Sydney quickly warmed up and figured out that the lady she has been seeing through Skype actually is standing in our house :) I worked half days which gave them lots of time together for grandma/granddaughter time and they worked on colors and even some Spanish. Sydney was such a performer and showed Grandma all her little tricks --- movements to Wheels on the Bus, movements to Row, Row, Row Your Boat, identifying the parts of her face (though sometime still a little mixed up), brushing her hair, dancing, you name it --- and she even repeated some new words we had not heard before, including "yellow"
Here is a photo re-cap of the visit. You can tell we had pretty extreme weather from 70+ on Saturday to 39 Monday! They both love to be outside, so it was a match made in heaven. We had a great day Saturday at War Eagle Mill (one of our favorite spots) and spent some time at the park Tuesday afternoon where Sydney experienced her first trips down a slide. The adorable outfit in the first few pictures was a gift from Grandma, and she will be wearing her new St. Patrick's Day outfit, another gift, tomorrow. :-) We won't see Grandma again until July, which makes us all pretty sad!!
