Alaina’s grandpa came to visit her last month (and I suppose he wanted to see us to, but let’s be honest- it was really to see the cute kid) and we spent a nice, relaxing weekend enjoying time together. Alaina was her Papa’s shadow most of the weekend and loved having a captive audience and someone who would read books to her non-stop. And sometimes, she just wanted to enjoy some snuggling. :)
Alaina also had fun showing her Papa all the big girl things she can do at the park, like go down the big kid slides and swing.
The first several days after Grandpa left town were rough; Alaina didn’t understand that Papa had to leave and wasn’t going to be coming back home later that day. She asked for him constantly (“Papa? Where go??”) and she still refers to the bed in the guest room as Papa’s bed.
The girl just loves her Papa!
