Playing with baby doll and baby brother on the front porch

Ivy and Grayson share a moment. Aren't they sweet?

Grayson is a little bigger than Bitty Baby, just so you know.

Grandma's visit

We enjoyed a visit from Steve's mom this past week. What a good time it was for all the kids to have Grandma here! I loved it too. She was a great baby-holder. (Annette would say babyHOG! heehee!)

Grayson loved sleeping on or beside Grandma Eimers all week long. Isn't he a sweetie?

Hannah seems to have found a chance to sneak him away from Grandma.

He looks so content, doesn't he?

I tried to take a picture of him cooing and smiling at Grandma but this is all I got.

This one I just threw into the mix. Too bad it isn't a scratch-n-sniff picture. Once again, I am wishing I could share that fresh-from-the-bath baby smell with you all. Mmmm... so sweet.

Thanks, Grandma! We miss you!

Babies are hilarious!

I gave Grayson a bath in the bathroom sink a few days ago. I started with one boy following me in the door, followed by two more obeying my direction not to hang the door open so the baby wouldn't get cold. Then, Hannah squeezed in. Everyone wanted to watch!Hannah left the group as the parade following Grayson and I went into my room so I could get him dressed. What's cuter than a pink, little newborn in his birthday suit?! So, I got him (mostly) dressed and stopped to take a picture or two, wishing I could capture the fresh-from-the-sink-bath-smell. In a moment or two, Grayson turned his head towards the light that was shining through the window and painting a line of brightness onto the hiney end of Daddy, also on the bed.

This turned out to be even more entertaining than the bath. The boys could hardly contain themselves. They all were laughing out loud as soon as one of them pointed out the object of Gray's rapt attention.

As funny as they thought it was to see the baby staring at Daddy's backside, I thought it was pretty entertaining to see them all cracking up over something so ridiculous.
