Today we were blessed to have Baby Ava for a long visit. I was surprised at how excited Alec was to have Ava in our home. He had asked several times when we were going to help take care of her and even petitioned aunt Andrea to allow Ava to sleep at our house last night. I imagined that the novelty might wear off when he recognized Ava sitting in his Youngest, Cutest, Most-Spoiled seat but he loved every minute of her today. He had quite a lot to say about his little cousin:
Getting a start on Transitive Relation equations:
"Trevor (2 year-old cousin) is bigger than Ava and I am bigger than Trevor...so that means I am really bigger than Ava."
After I enlisted his help to hold her pacifier in while we were driving home:
"Baby Ava cries when you drive too fast."
"I think it's going to be a boy baby."
After I said he could have a treat at home:
"Yeah but that baby can't eat a doughnut. The mouth is too, too little."
Gently rubbing her head:
"I don't see any hair up there."
After I teased that Ava had not answered my question:
"Yeah. Only you need teeth to talk."
