Welcome, Baby Cousin Jacob
I can't believe it's been SO LONG since I posted anything. Please forgive me, but we've had a BUSY couple of months. The first (and perhaps biggest) news is that Amelia has another baby cousin, a boy this time! Grandma Maria and Grandpa Guy visited from Thailand for several weeks. (We were to lucky that Grandma Maria stayed on after Grandpa Guy left.) Nong Lanna turned 1-year-old, which warranted a trip to Washington, D.C. And Amelia had her first official visit to the Magic Kingdom, a.k.a. Disney World. I'm sure I'm forgetting lots of things, but those are the highlights.
And now to Baby Boy Jacob. On April 24, Stacey and Tom welcomed baby Jacob Martin McDonald into their lives. He was born April 21. We have been lucky enough to meet him two times, the first time just days after he came home. As you can see from these photos, Amelia LOVES her cousin Jacob. She is generally very sweet to him, except when SHE tries to sit in HIS lap. (Isn't is supposed to be the other way around? He's the baby!) We can't wait until they are old enough to play together. They are going to have so much fun together!
These are photos from our very first visit with Jacob. He's grown so much since then, but isn't he a handsome guy? We plan to see them again next week when his adoption is finalized and can't wait.
