So in the last twenty-four hours Sam has visited with his Great-Grandma Krahn, Great-Uncle Rich, Great-Auntie Alice, Great-Auntie Myrna and, through Skype, Great-Uncle Mark and Great-Auntie Jeannie. It's been a wild ride.
He was very excited to see Uncle Rich and Auntie Alice as he is quite familiar with them from their picture card on our fridge, which also features zebras and giraffes! He really took to them right away and cuddled with Auntie Alice, got both of them reading stories to him and got Uncle Rich to feed him his milk!
We visited with Great-Grandma Krahn this morning at her house and Sam really enjoyed hanging out on the (cold!) balcony and watching for planes. He also got a ride on her walker when she walked us out to our car.
Then this afternoon Auntie Myrna came to visit us. She stayed for an excellent supper of Swiss steak which Sam mostly ignored in favour of "salad! Lettuce!" He ate A TON of salad which I found a little surprising.
When Daddy called Sam on Skype, Daddy was at Great-Uncle Mark and Great-Auntie Jeannie's house. Sam has never met them in person but had a lot to say about them after the Skype call. During the call he was a little shy, although he did want to play peek-a-boo.
I am glad that Sam has lots of great-aunts, great-uncles and three great-grandparents. I am also glad that he gets to spend time with some of them and get to know them a little bit. And for those of you he hasn't met yet, or spent as much time with, I hope he does get the chance to know you too!
