Russ' family all lives in Arkansas. It just so happens that the woman Russ' brother, Jeremy, married is from South Carolina. Jeremy and Bailey were out here over the Thanksgiving holiday last year but we haven't been able to see them since. Bailey and their new baby, Ethan, were here all last week. Her Grandpa was having heart trouble and they came with her mother to see him. On Friday Russ, Chloe Jo and I were able to have lunch with Bailey and meet little Ethan!
Isn't he precious! And look at that mohawk! His hair does that naturally.
I loved holding Ethan while we were waiting for our food. It's been a long time since I've held an itty bitty baby. There is nothing sweeter! I wondered how Chloe Jo would react to my attention not being on her but she wasn't bothered in the least! She just kept pointing at him and saying "baby" and "Momma baby!" She wouldn't get on my lap or touch him at first but she eventually touched him with one finger. Kisses and hugs were totally out of the question. :)
Here she is saying goodbye after lunch.
And here we are with Bailey.
We had a great time visiting with Bailey and meeting Ethan. We are looking forward to spending Christmas in Arkansas!
