: My mother doesn't visit us NEAR as often as she should considering she works part-time and only lives 20 minutes away. I took Hannah over to her today because Mrs. Steve still feels bad (she's taking B6 as of tonight .. I'll let you know how it works) and needed a break. Hannah crawled up on my mom's lap and they were looking at a book with a bunch of animals. My mother was shocked and astounded at the number of words the little girl knew. I think she realized that she's missing her granddaughter's childhood. She mentioned later that she wants to pick a day to come over every week.
That is wonderful that your mom is now beginning to spend more time with Hannah. Maybe your wife getting pregnant was a sign for her to start getting closer to her. Right now she says she will pick a day to come over every week, later it will be a few times a week as she begins to bond more with her. I think Hannah is so smart too because you and Mrs. Steve teach her. I think reading a book every night really helps a lot too. I have been reading to my babies since birth.
I hope Mrs. Steve starts feeling better. I hope the B6 does help her. Let me know. Take Care.
