This is loooooong overdue folks! First, let me just tell you how much Norah loves her Papa. Ever since we went to San Antonio for James’s wedding back in November she has been 100% head over heels for him. On that trip, my dad picked us up from the airport and this was Norah’s first time meeting him since he came to see us when she was about 4 weeks old. We were in the car for all of 10 minutes when she just pointed at him and said “Papa!” I honestly have no idea where it came from or if one of us had said it and not realized it, but that doesn’t seem plausible since we had only previously called him Grandpa. Whatever the cause or impetus, Norah dubbed him Papa and from that moment on has been his number one fan. So imagine our delight when Papa called us in December to tell us about a surprise visit over New Year’s! He came for several days and we had an amazing time and Norah was ecstatic. Park visits, nightly and naptime book readings, a trip to the Museum of Life and Science, and just a whole lot of good old fashion hanging out made for one helluva visit. Snappies!
We can’t wait to see you again, Papa!
