Last month my mom came to visit for a while and man it was nice having her here! It was nice having someone else (an adult) to talk to as we went about our day, it is amazing how much more I could get done with an extra set of hands to entertain Jake. I was able to make appointments and we ran all kinds of errands and got stuff done! And of course we were having fun along the way with plenty of trips to the park, shopping and lots of giggles.
One afternoon we went to the Del Mar Races. First we stopped at the paddock to watch the horses saddle up and parade around before heading out to the race track.
Then we went to the infield to watch the races so Jacob would have room to run around. Justin got some drinks for us and my mom let Jacob have a taste of her lemonade.
And that was it…she hardly even got any, Jacob wouldn’t give it back and drank the whole thing.
When it got close to being empty I added some water to the cup hoping he would drink it and he wanted nothing to do with it. Pure lemonade only for this little boy! We lost a few bucks and won a few bucks, it was a fun afternoon.
On another day we drove to Oma’s house for a visit. After Jacob got Oma comfortable in her recliner by pushing all the buttons to lift her up and down and lean her back and forth he discovered all the fun things she has to climb and ride around on.
After Oma took this for a spin around the hall he decided it was his turn and kept making his vroom, vroom noises
Oma…what does this button do?
After we had In N Out for lunch (yum!) we went outside to run around for a bit before we headed home. Jacob found some pretty flowers
and decided that Oma should have them.
Just a few days after we visited Oma, we were walking up the stairs and at the top of the stairs I have a picture of Jacob on Oma’s lap during Christmas hanging on the wall and he started signing Oma! It is so awesome to see him recognize faces and learn who people are and be able to sign who they are. When it came time for my mom to go home, Jacob walked around signing grandma, grandma, grandma everywhere he went for a few days. He still signs grandma wash whenever he goes into the guest bathroom. I just love seeing the wheels turn in his head!
It was a fun time with grandma and we look forward to next time!
