Alec on Ava.

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."

Randomly:
"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."

Is she not so beautiful?
I love her.

WOW! Those pictures turned out GREAT. I'm so glad (selfishly so) that you got to spend a day with Ava. She is a piece of Heaven to me.

That last picture is gorgeous! You need another baby that can reside in your home full-time. (I think I just received inspiration for you)

Cute, cute comments by Alec. So glad you wrote them down...that way they won't be forgotten. He is such a darling little guy. He can come visit the Gregson family anytime!

This post made me baby hungry. Jeff says we're too old and we're truly done...I could do one more. :(

Thanks a lot for re-sparking my baby fever. I can't believe I just admitted that on the world wide web. But Ed says the same thing as Jeff. Good thing noone knows who I am. Love that last shot. That baby looks good on you...
