I got a call from Brett's Grandma Busch about 3 weeks ago letting me know that she and Grandpa Busch would be coming to town for a couple of days and that while they were here they would love to meet their great-granddaughter. We checked our calendars and made a date and yesterday when we got home from work/school Corinne got to meet her great-grandma and great-grandpa Busch! At first, she wasn't sure what to think about these new faces in her house and she was shy and quiet and kept a close watch on Mama. But, once she had a snack and some juice she got curious and started interacting with them.
Corinne was happy to give her great-grandparents a tour of the house and kept a tight grip on their fingers when walking about and traversing the staircases. We played with puzzles and read books together before heading out to a restaurant for dinner. Corinne was very well behaved and colored on her place mat while we perused our menus. Once our order had been placed, Corinne decided it was time to socialize and sat with Grandma - trying on her pretty blue bracelet and playing with her colorful purse. After we had all eaten our fill Corinne snuggled up with Grandpa Busch and he shared a few bites of waffle fries with her.
On the way home Corinne got to open a very special package and she "oohed and ahhed" over her new Teddy Bear and immediately requested that her new pop-up book The Very Hungry Caterpillar be read over and over in the car. She was very careful with the pages helped count all of the foods the caterpillar ate his way through.
When it was time to say goodbye Corinne was generous with her hugs and kisses to Grandma and Grandpa Busch. It was a wonderful visit and I was surprised and happy to see how quickly Corinne accepted them into her circle.
