So I don't know if I have mentioned it or not, but Ian's mom loves being a Gramma. She has looked forward to being a gramma since she was just a tiny girl and Niev made her greatest dream come true. Unfortunately, they live in California so they don't get to see Niev all that often (Paula does try to visit as often as possible, but that is normally about every six weeks; a lot happens in the life of a little one in six weeks time!). Luckily we have phone calls. Gramma Buh has called Niev since she was about six months old and could barely giggle or babble on the phone. As Niev has been able to communicate more and more, these phone calls truly have been little treasures.
I clipped several videos together so sorry if it seems choppy, but I wanted you to get all the highlights!
During my birthday trip to Portland, Ian had called to talk to me and Niev. I told her to tell Daddy that she missed him and loved him and it was the first time she started kissing the phone like that. I thought I was going to cry.If you ever tell Niev, "Say I love you!" (and she is in a good mood) she will pucker up and give kisses. It really is the sweetest thing. She is truly the joy of our lives right now. Tiring, but so much fun! We wouldn't trade her for the world (most days anyway...)
