All of the grandparents are scattered to the wind this week - my folks are already in the Midwest, Tim's folks are on their way to Hawaii, and Parissa's mom took off to go visit her family in Texas, leaving Pari with a three week old baby and 18 month old Mila. We had been commiserating about how much we rely on the grandmas in our lives, and I offered to come out and bring lunch and meet the new baby.
It was such a cute afternoon. Ellie is in love with Mila and now in love with Rahim, and when she wasn't bossing around her army of minions, she was standing inches from Pari and talking her ear off. The four kids were quite the adventure, running around the house, going outside to pick oranges off the tree, chasing the dog. What more could you want?
It's so fun to watch the kids together. Mila is a talking machine, and it was incredibly sweet to watch her walk around asking for Ellie. I can't wait to see what they're like in another six months, all together.
