My mom arrived last Sunday for a holiday visit, and we are loving having her here. The last time she was in North Carolina was for Gigi's birth, and Gigi is definitely not a newborn anymore. I was worried that Gigi would take a little while to warm up to her, but on the way home from the airport my mom was in the backseat making her laugh hysterically. Not too much to worry about there.
We are still trying to find the perfect title for my mom. We try "Grandma", "Grammy" and "Tutu" interchangeably to find the one that sounds the best, but it's still up in the air. I would love for my mom to be "Tutu" because in Hawaii we call grandmas "Tutu" and I would love Gigi to have a connection to her Hawaiian roots. However, whenever we say "Tutu" we both think of my grandma (who was called "Tutu" for more than 20 years), and it has been hard to switch our brains! I guess we still have a few months before Gigi is really saying much anyway. Maybe we will have a working title down by the time my mom moves here next summer.
