November was a busy month. The highlight was definitely Grandma and Grandpa flying all the way from Iowa to visit Nyan (and Mommy and Daddy) for three weeks. They got up to all sorts of fun, which we’ll be chronicling in upcoming posts. Here’s a first look at some of the general frivolity.
The day they arrived, Nyan and Daddy met them at the airport. (Mommy was in Hong Kong for a brief business trip.) Here’s our boy, anxiously watching for them to arrive at the baggage claim, and then posing while waiting for a taxi.
One evening, we stayed up late (10pm!) to watch the movie E.T. Here’s our boy on the couch with his grandparents.
As any long-time reader of this blog knows, Nyan loves to read. So he did a lot of that with Grandma and Grandpa. See:
Toward the end of their stay, Kathy and Joe — Grandma’s cousins and close friends — happened to be in town for a few days, at the end of a weeks-long cruise through Asia. Kathy and Joe adore Nyan — Kathy came to visit him in New York when he was just a few months old — so we spent a lot of time with them. Here they are one evening, Kathy and Joe (and Grandma and Grandpa) watching as Nyan does his abacus homework.
Nyan of course likes to draw too. Here he is, explaining one of his creations to Grandpa.
Nyan helped Grandma in the kitchen too, peeling potatoes one evening:
He also enlisted their help to put up and decorate the Christmas tree toward the end of the month.
And here are a few pictures of Grandma and Grandpa (and others) out and about in Singapore.
We close with these shots of Nyan and Grandma, just hanging out and enjoying each others’ company.
We’ll have much more about their visit in upcoming posts, so stay tuned!
