A Date with Charis--Our Grand Date! (Saturday, Jan. 22)
Since Kol wasn't even a week old yet on Saturday evening and since Monique needs to rest, we offered to take Charis out for a Grandparent Date so they could stay home and have Date Night. Charis was all dressed up in pony tails, stick-on "earrings" and a purple sweater when we arrived. We bundled her up and decided to commemorate our first official Grandparent Date with a photo--but Charis wouldn't smile.
Gradually a tiny smile began lurking at the corners of her mouth.
After that she dipped chips in the salsa for Didi, ate all her guacamole, and asked Mimi to feed her her refried beans. When she had inhaled those, she inhaled all of Mimi's beans! When those were gone, she ate her shredded chicken.
Thank you, Jim, Monique, and Kol, for letting us borrow Charis for such a special evening!
