Grace and her closest-in-age cousin Carson are just 2 1/2 months apart and it's been so much fun seeing their little personalities develop. Grace loves Carson. She smiles at his picture on our refrigerator and tries to say his name ("cars, cars") after I tell her "that's cousin Carson". But when Carson and his parents come to visit, Grace gets all shy around him! She does her little tuck-head-and-look-away pose.
But it doesn't take her long to get over it and start smiling and babbling to him.
Carson gave Grace a gift certificate to Build-a-Bear for her birthday and we had so much fun going to pick out a new friend. Grace picked out a yellow chick (go figure!) and Carson picked out a baseball bear.
Here's Carson with his mama - I just love this picture of the two of them!
And here he is at Grace's birthday party crawling through the tunnel. We can't wait to go to Carson's 1st birthday party next month!!!
