The grandbaby has not been here in two weeks. We had to go see her on Saturday to get our "Lizzie fix". Due to having a cold, she had not been out of the house much nor had many visitors. She was pretty excited to see us. She immediately started whistling (she associates us with our dog, Ranger).
We all went out to eat and then went walking at the mall. Lizzie was wound up and excited to be out and about with her own audience to laugh at everything she did. I could go on and on about how funny she is, but then everyone would think I was just a silly grandmother. She really is funny and keeps us constantly entertained – she is my granddaughter you know!
Lizzie loves to play peek-a-boo or hide-and-seek. Sometimes Jesse hides and then sneaks up and "gets" Lizzie. Of course, Lizzie can see her coming, which does not lessen the thrill – in fact, it causes her to squeal and laugh and grab me around the neck and squeeze as if I were protecting her from Jesse. This is all a very loud process, but quite enjoyable for all.
Although Lizzie cannot say my name yet (Mama Lou), she can say her other grandmother’s name, Nana. She seemed quite pleased with herself and said "Nana" over and over. When we tried to get Nana on the phone so she could share in this joy too, Lizzie would not say it while the phone was to her ear, but would say it after we removed the phone. She is a stinker. The day was wonderful, but I was worn out after the mall. So was Lizzie.
Hey Nana, I have been missing you too.
