"I had Ravioli for Dinner"

My three year old nephew called me a couple of nights ago. Only when I saw the caller ID I thought it was my mom. When I answered all I could hear was him quietly saying, "hi jenfa." So I started talking to him and asking him all sorts of questions about what he was doing at grandma's house, was he having fun and such. Then all of a sudden he said, "I had ravioli for dinner." I love it! He then went on to tell me he had milk and "watamelon." He also got to jump on the trampoline in the rain.

When my mom finally got on the phone she said he brought the phone to her and said, "Call jenfa, grandma." How could she pass that up?? Before my visit this summer, he never wanted to talk to me on the phone let alone ask to call. I'd ask to talk to him and then either my mom or my sister would ask him and he would say, "Noooooo." Now he wants to call me!! It makes me so happy. I think I may need to take a trip up there this fall! I'm missing him so much already.

Here's a pic I took while I was visiting.  He was picking up crab apples in my mom's backyard.

Adorable! My Mom was taking to my 3 yr old nephew and he told her he was eating dinosaur cereal. Then he took the cell phone and put it inside the box and said "see nana". So funny!

I think you need that trip to see your little love :)

HUGS and thank you for the comment you left on my blog. I left a response on my blog just for you, as your words meant so much.
