Happy birthday, my sweet boy…

I was there when you arrived HOME from Ethiopia after a long two day journey with your Mom and Dad.  You must have been tired, but you didn’t cry.  You carefully looked us all over – your  new family – from the safety of Mommy’s arms.  Those dark eyes danced and then you smiled, revealing dimples that stole my heart.  Two years later and I am indeed your Grandmommy!  Happy Birthday, my sweet boy!

For my grandson’s third birthday, I chose the Hallmark Curious George recordable book and the Curious George plush character that talks when you press the toe (loudly).  I also recorded the story in my voice.  My daughter says he plays the storybook all the time.  I watched on iPad FaceTime as he opened them and played the book.  For just a moment, there was a look of confusion as to how I could accomplish being in two places at once, but then he picked the book up and hugged it to his chest.   I will be there for a visit in a few short weeks and I can’t wait!

    This is so beautiful. I hope you have a wonderful trip to see your grandson. I love the new Hallmark Recordable Books. What an amazing thing this is… to be able to have your grandson hear your voice reading a favorite book.
    Happy Birthday little guy.

    Your grandchildren are so adorable. I know that face time is not the same we do it with our grand daughter there is nothing like hugging.
