I'm a long-distance grandmother. Doting...but way too far away. So you can bet I cuddled Miss Rosie Rosebud, sang lullabies, changed diapers, pushed the stroller, and carried her around as much as possible on their first trip to see us. We let her play with her Daddy's baby toys, pound on the toy piano that her great-aunt used, and fed her in the wooden high chair that's now serving a third generation. In other words, I used every available moment to store up memories that will have to last until the next baby fix--hopefully Spring Break will find us at Casa Encantada once again.
Babies change daily and over the six months since we've seen her, she's changed from a newborn to a little person. Oh, how I wish we were closer so we could absorb every little change!
Please put up with me for just a bit as I share my favorite memories from their recent visit. I spent my time reveling in our Rosebud instead of taking a zillion photos. And since I'm the designated photographer, there's not one single photo of her and I together from this trip. A mistake I won't make on the next visit!
