An Itty Bitty Visitor

So, midweek, my oldest son phoned to see if we would be home last weekend (as if we ever aren't home) and if any of the sibs with dogs would be here.  When he received answers of yes and no, he announced that he and Ashleigh would be coming up with the baby.  They are going on a working vacation in late May, and he wanted to "test drive" the baby for 3 hours to see how she'd react.

OK, I don't need any excuses; just bring her to visit.  We'll be happy to see you, too.

She spent lots of time with Grandpa, AKA The Great Red Protector.  Everyone knows he's a friend to children and dogs. And look at the ears on that hood.

 She's controlling her head fairly well now.

 Again, we are good at pretending we can sit up with our Daddy.

 Her Mommy wanted this picture.  It was the only time on Sunday when I held the baby; her Grandpa got lots of quality time with her.  That's OK; he makes me smile.
 You can't really see it, but in this picture, he is sitting in a chair which belonged to his grandmother, her great-great-grandmother.
And, peering over her Daddy's shoulder, as he carried her to her car seat to leave.  It looks like she's waving bye-bye!
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

I think it's adorable that Grandpa is so taken with little Madeline and she with him; priceless:)

I also think it's soooo cute that the kids wanted to take her on a "test run." I'm sure she did fine and slept most of the way. Babies in cars, that's usually how it goes, lol...

She is so adorable Marjie and her clothes actually look like they fit quite well. Sometimes babies look like they are wearing clothes they will some day grow into, lol...they do still look cute though:)

I can't believe it's 6 weeks. Oh my goodness, now we're going to have another to watch grow to quickly, lol...

Thanks for sharing, Marjie...
