You've met Lianna. But, who is this person holding her? Next "meet ___" moment - meet my mom, Siony (pronounced Show-nee). Mom's from the Philippines (I'm half Filipina and half Italian/American) and has been here since the late 60s. She's actually been here in the US longer than the country she comes from.
My mom is such a huge help to us and plays a very strong role in my babies' lives. She is their caregiver (like the good 'ol days, before daycare centers) and they love her to death. BONUS: she lives next door! :) I am very grateful to her all that she does for us and am so glad that my children know her. She is their Lola (loo-lah, grandmother in Tagalog (Filipino)).
To me, this picture speaks volumes. It is so easy to see how much she loves her granddaughter.
(oh wait - you can't tell but Lianna's wearing jeggings. can you imagine? lol... jeggings for babies...)
