In this house - Nanni rules. During the day, I am guaranteed to get several requests to contact Mom: “Nanni, talk” “Nanni, Skype” “Nanni, hi.” And sometimes she gets pretty demanding When she feels it’s time to talk to Nanni, nothing can change her mind. Luckily (for me), Mom is usually available for a quick call, if not Skype. We talk bebos (bellybuttons), her day, Ella shows her some toys, mom and I catch up, and then it’s time to go….until a few hours later when Ella needs another fix.
During sleep training, Ella will spend about 15 min. calling for Adam or me and then she’ll go right to Nanni. She truly believes her faithful Nanni will come down from New York and save her from the evil sleep training mommy.
Why is it that she loves her so much? Would you love a warm, cozy woman who adorns you with attention, love, kisses, hugs…reads you books, engages you in activities, changes you, feeds you, tucks you in, and who has the best nails to run along your back or tickle you with? Of course you would.
So cheers to you Nanni! We all love you just as much as Ella, but she is sure taking the cake for showing you just how much every day.
Here are some photos from mom's visit a few weeks ago, miss you!
