Otherwise, this first week has been all about visiting with 3 of her 4 grandparents and playing with cousins, aunts & uncles. She loves spending time with all the "niñas" (girls - our friend's kids) and with her prima Sofia (" 'afia" as Emilia calls her). Thursday we went to my "Gero's" house - my Tio Gerardo & Tia Marcela are well into their 80s and the closest thing I have to grandparents. They are the most spectacular people you've ever met in your life and every Thursday, for as long as anyone can remember, they have always had an open invitation for lunch at their house - sometimes it's just the 2 of them, sometimes it's close to 30 people. This Thursday was average - 12. Lunch is always the same on Thursdays - locro (a potato soup - but so much more), choclos y abas (corn on the cob and fava beans). I know it sounds gross but it's the best comfort food you can imagine and I'm so glad that, even if she'll have no recollection of it, Emilia has had the opportunity to take part in this lunch at least a few times.
