My latest grandchild
and my last (so I've been told)
was two days short of five months
when I kept her and her brother
for about seven hours.
Since she and her family live in Texas
I don't often get the opportunity
to see life through her eyes.
This toy made sounds
but Abby simply wanted one of the rings in her mouth.
"Ahhh, this looks interesting!"
"Let's get a closer look."
"Closer, closer---yep, it can go in the mouth too. Yeah!"
But the best item in her view
was a crinkly farm animal book.
(I accidentally didn't pack this
and will be sending it to you, daughter.
Here she has spotted it
and is working her way toward it.
"Oh goody! Grandma helped me get it."(Abby is scooting a little and trying to crawl,
but as we were away from mama,
I didn't think it wise for her to get frustrated and cranky.)
Notice, she isn't checking out the pictures.
Through her eyes,
this book's purpose is to ease her teething gums.
As we waited for big brother to wake up from his nap,
her gums seemed to be bothering her more and more.
Now we adults would not think of putting our toes in our mouth,
But Abby eyed them and thought, "Hmmm, let's give them a try."
They worked great---even better than the book! :)
