Natalia LOVES her Opa. She calls him "MY Opa" and constantly wants to be around him. He responds in like, reading to her every night, teaching her about the world, and generally spoiling her. They really have a connection and he can really bring out the best in her. This is one of the conversations they had tonight before bed. She was telling him about a book that she bent earlier today.
"I broke a book Opa!"
"Really?" he said, "How did you do that?"
"I did this," she said, moving her hands back and forth, pantomiming breaking the spine of a book.
"Sometimes I make mistakes."
Seriously!?!? She isn't even 2 1/2 yet. I'm totally blown away by this little one. Can't even imagine what a full command of the English (or Spanish) language is going to bring.
