Mia and her great grandma
Mia is carrying on the tradition of playing canasta! And she doesn't seem very satisfied with her hand... ;)
Beautiful sunset in Colorado.
Beautiful baby sleeping on the drive home. Those lips....
Eric and I have been planning a trip to Colorado so that Mia and my grandma could meet! But with his work schedule the way it is right now, we just can't make a trip out for another month or two. So when my parents told me they were going to visit, Mia and I hitched a ride! (My grandma is 97 years old! It has been so important to me that Mia got to meet her, because grandma thought she'd never live to see my dad have kids, let alone see him become a grandad! I wish my grandad could have been here to hold her, but I know he was there in spirit!)
When I first walked into my grandma's home, I set Mia's car seat on the counter and lifted up the cover. Grandma started talking to Mia and both of their faces lit up :) It was love at first sight, such a sweet moment!!
Despite spending 7 hours in the car both ways, missing daddy, and not really sleeping through the night... Mia had a great trip! She was SO good in the car and slept for most of the drive. She usually sleeps from 9-5 and we both neeeeeed that sleep, but she was up every couple hours. I'm just hoping it was a growth spurt, not a new habit :) And Mia LOVED all the attention she got from my parents (who wouldn't stop fighting over who got to hold her longer, ha ha!) and her great grandma. It was a quick trip but I'm so grateful we were able to go!
