|nikko with papalo & mamala during their visit last june|
nikko doesn't "talk" that much though, he just listens. and when we tell him to kiss mamala & papalo, he'll kiss the phone. and when we tell him to say goodbye, he waves his hands. and we describe these to mama & papa and we know they're happy hearing it.
with this simple routine, we're able to teach nikko the value of connecting with my in-laws. and how important it is to stay in touch with them even through just a phone call. i hope that when he gets bigger, he'll be more receptive and that he will talk to them often and share his own stories.
here is a storybook of nikko before we called mama this morning. i love how i was able to capture these photos.
