She Calls Me "Mammo"

 She's 2 and she dearly calls me "Mammo".
Funny girl! She likes to pose for me.
Alexia Marie is my first grandniece. 
She's my late sister's first grandchild. 
And now lives with her mother in our neighborhood. 
So, I get to see her more often now.

Alexia is a chatter box. She's very fluent in our dialect and my girls are envious about it but she's beginning to lose it as she has to learn English and Filipino to communicate with her cousins.

Once, I asked her to pull out the white hairs on my head and she quickly replied, "Ayaw, kay mapangit ka!" (No, you'll become ugly!).
She is undeniably her mother's daughter. They look alike! I babysat her mom from birth until she was Alexia's age so I can tell how similar they are in almost everything!

Here they are, mother and child during Alexia's mom's sister's wedding. Alexia was the flower angel and her mom was the maid of honor.

...and there she goes stealing my seat!
