Meeting a new cousin

Little Lad, "who are we going to see??"

We brought the kids to visit their new cousin this evening.

Nature Man has such a sweet and gentle spirit.
He has always loved babies.
The Artist, of course, was thrilled, and would have sat there with the new darling cousin all day.
Even Dash (who now insists on being called "Monkey Boy") got a turn,
with plenty of help.
Isn't this sweet?
Sometimes I forget just how little my little man is himself.
But it was Uncle Fred, my dear sweet man, that I had to pry away from the baby, so we could get our kiddos home to bed. This man has always loved babies, and they have always loved him.
Have I mentioned before how much I love my family,
and how extremely grateful I am to have them so near?

HOW PRECIOUS!!!!!!!!! I love the video, too! Ya know, someone once told me that you can always tell a good man by how he reacts to children, expecially babies. Way to go, Wendy! (and Amy and Vu, LOL!) You love your family soooo much and you make others feel they are a part of that family when you post about them. Thank you, from someone who has a hard time fathoming the intimacy between siblings! :0)

Awww, Baby Ha is SO sweet and cuddly. I just oohed and ahhed at the screen for like five minutes! Your family is just so natural with babies. My cousins were like my brothers and sisters, so I think the world of cousins, new and old! Sending warmest baby wishes your way - to Amy and Vu and all the rest of you!
