Tonight we had my dad over for dinner for some Pesto Pizza - Yum! After dinner Syd said, "So, Papa, what do you say we play some Wii?" Too cute! So she, and my 68 year old dad, proceeded to play a game of Wii Bowling. And Papa bowled a 192! Wow! Not bad for an "old guy" - that's what Syd calls him.
Syd has made Papa his very own Mii - complete with a white mustache and thinning white hair! It cracks me up.
As I watched my dad get a Turkey (I learned tonight that's 3 strikes in a row) I thought of how much fun he has with Syd and how much fun it will be to watch him bond with Hannah. He has been a bit reserved in his comments about my pending adoption - I think mostly because he's worried about me and how long this is taking. But as I watch him sit with Syd on his lap messing with what little hair he has left, I am convinced that he will adore Hannah just as much as he adores Syd and I can't wait to watch it unfold!
By the way, the picture above is from last Summer on our deck - I didn't think to take any pictures tonight. I'm gonna have to work on that.
