Missing MoMo

Thursday, February 5, 2009

MoMo returns from Cambodia on Saturday, and Henry cannot wait.

Before Henry was born, MoMo made him a monkey at Build-A-Bear, and when you press on his hand, he says, "I love you, Henry." It's MoMo's voice, of course. Everyday since MoMo has been gone, I press on the monkey for Henry to hear. He just stares at, trying to understand why a familiar voice is coming out of the stuffed monkey. He stares until I press it again, and then he looks at me, and then he looks back at the monkey, as if he is thinking,"is that really who I think it is?" 
I know he will be so elated to see her on Saturday, and I imagine she will be over-the-moon to see him.
*In case you are new here, MoMo is my sister, Henry's Aunt.

I love how much little ones love their grandparents ( I am thinking that is who MoMo is) - ours is Dramma and Papa. Those visits are absolutely cherished moments in time.
