Not just ANY Oma but Aubrey's Oma. I never had grandparent relationships because we always lived too far away from them but I get to experience it now and... wow... Watching these two together, seeing what Mommy is teaching Aubrey... It's what shapes a person. It's her legacy being passed to me, to Aubrey, and one day to Aubrey's children. Their bond is unique and special and funny and beautiful to witness. Even when Oma sneaks her extra treats saying "but that's what grandma's are supposed to do!".
I snapped this one day while Oma was telling Aubrey about the day we brought her home from the hospital. She held her just like this, in this very spot. I look forward to many many more Oma stories for Aubrey. She's a very lucky little girl.
