Going back through these photographs I noticed how beautifully they show the difference in Nana and I's relationship with Emiliana.
Emiliana has moments of being a quiet soul but for the most part she's extroverted, loves being surrounded by vibrant colors, loves people, makes new friends easily and has no fear of water, climbing, etc. Nana shares that with her. Her entire (bright) wardrobe exists because Nana bought her that crazy hat and the hot pink tennies and the sparkly dress.
For Emiliana and I, we share a love of music, of quiet moments at the park, of books, of finding tiny treasures on the shore. If it were for me, she'd wear whites and muted tones but that girl won't barely touch a black jumper in the light of day. She needs sparkle. So very much sparkle.
So grateful to be blessed with a Nana that shares her energy and can understand her on a level that even her own mother does not share. So grateful to have Nana... and the beach.
This is the kind of woman Nana is. While Emiliana and I are off taking photographs of the new cowgirl outfit Nana bought her for her birthday, Nana is changing her own tire.
What a strong Texas woman.
We love you Nana to the moon!
Happy Mother's Day.
