Adelaide and Cousin Marion

Adelaide Anne got to meet her cousin little Marion Elizabeth on her trip out to Grandma and Grandpa Oliver's house. Marion Elizabeth Seely is Mitch's sister and brother-in-law's little girl who is 5 weeks older than Adelaide. Marion is so petite and has the darkest chocolate brown eyes you have ever seen. Mitch and I got to tend her for awhile during our visit and she was a doll. She loves to such on her binkie even if you put it upside down in her mouth she'll contentedly suck away. You can tell when they were together that Marion definately had some age on Addie. You could see Marion was interested and aware of her cousin laying next to her and was trying to figure out in her head what was going on. She was a lot more spacially aware as well and loved to play with her soft bunny. Adelaide was happy to be there but really had no clue that anyone was laying next to here until Marion and her hand just happened to come together. Such cute cousins holding hands!!

I really loved having cousins my age when I was growing up. I'm so glad that Addie has a cousin so close in age too. I don't know how often they'll be able to see each other and interact but it will be fun to watch them grow.

Ahead of the Game

Here's litte Addy holding up her head. She is so adorable. Ryan McAffee one of our friends said that we would think our baby was the coolest when she started holding up her head by herself, and he was sooo right. It's amazing, not that she wasn't cool before but, well just take a look for yourself and see if you don't ohh and aww.

Colby's Rump- A- Pum- Pum

I thought I'd share Uncle Colby's christmas devotional with you all. Okay so Swing, Swing, Swing isn't so Christmasy, but he sure can bang those drums. Look for Colby. He's the third one from the left hand side when they play the snare and the cymbals, then he's the fourth one from the left hand side when they are on the toms. I think he's the only one with a beard, anyway if you look for the dark beard you'll spot him. Love ya Colby and your little rump too!!
