When my mother-in-law is around, my arms feel rested. From Noodle's first morning chirp until her final eye rubs at dusk, these two ladies are spinning their love nest. Nora's eyes brighten when she sees her Lola...tiny grins...and a head-bobbing search for her when they are in the same room.
Yesterday's family quilt was brightened by the addition of Anna. Nuggs dressed in the onesie that her flower child aunt gave her. I adore watching Nora's face as she looks at Anna's. It is the clear recognition of her father's face; a well-known voice, yet in female form. A similar silliness. A comfortable and instant love.
So, the living room was soon filled with laughter, music, and kisses. Here are a few videos and my favorite picture.
Kapampangan children's songs...Anna & Daniel remembered them fondly. Noodle was smitten.
