For Christmas I made Kimber a family photo book. I figured since she doesn't see all our family on a regular basis that maybe this book would help her recognize them when they do come around. We've been looking at the book every night before bed. I explain who everyone is in relation to her, and to Pat and me. She even gives a select few kisses. :)
The other day we were over at my mom's and Kimber kept wanting my dad to hold her, which never happens. I mean occasionally she'd reach for him but then always want me back. I really think it has everything to do with this book, and even if that's not the case, that's my story and I'm stickin to it!
So there you have it... a way for your kids to not be shy around family they don't see that often :)
