Yesterday we went to a family party for my niece Catherine who will be five tomorrow and my nephew Peter who will be 15 on Wednesday. As usual it was a lot of fun. Dom has a great big loud Italian family and they know how to load a table with good food and how to enjoy eating it and celebrating life with friends and family.
Isabella was in heaven with so many aunts and uncles and cousins to dote on her and so many new toys to play with. She especially had fun with her little cousin, Cecilia, who is just six months younger than she is.
The two little girls rolled cars around and Cecilia pulled some out of a basket while Bella tried to take them all away and put them into her own basket. We still have to work on that whole “sharing” thing.
Cecilia is a hugger and tried to give Bella a hug, which Bella didn’t know what to do with. Bella in turn is just learning how to give kisses and tried to kiss Cecilia who leaned away. A good effort by both cousins. I am so glad that Bella will have a cousin who is just her age to grow up with.
