A day with Alaina

*warning - lots of pictures!

We got to have Alaina at our house from Saturday to Sunday. Laura and Aaron had a really busy Saturday and we were thrilled to take her!
After I picked her up on Saturday, we stopped by my Dad's house. He's always thrilled to see his only great grand child!


Alaina and Great-Grandpa




Reading a book with Grandpa




Having fun playing




She is such a happy, easy going baby!



Alaina is never lacking for attention when she comes over!




Here she is all dressed up for church on Easter Sunday. You can see she has to work on being a little more lady like! She kept pulling her dress up and putting it in her mouth when I was trying to get a nice picture.




This is the best I could do! Doesn't she look cute?




Andy and Alaina, both looking good before leaving for church.
Laura and Aaron met us at our church, so we could all go together. Alaina was really good in church and as you may expect,I loved showing her off!


One last shot of me with Alaina after church.

Some of the photos I cherish the most are those of my dad with his great-grandcildren and my kids do too. It's such a blessing you are able to share this time with your dad.

Maybe Alaina would rather be wearing overalls! A little sweetie after my own heart. I never really liked dresses. :)

She was so good in church however I was finding her a huge distraction. I couldn't stop looking at her and then trying to tell the girls to pay attention to Steve wasn't going over well since I wasn't paying attention either ;)

Melissa said...

Such cute pictures! It looks like you had a fun time with her :)

Susan said...

What a smile!!! What a face!!! What a joy for you, I know!!!

She is adorable! Babies are so fun!

Musicaljean said...

All the pictures are wonderful, but the last one is my favorite. You and Alaina even match!

Kim said...

Such a cutie! And y'all matched Sunday :) I'm amazed you got her to keep her little headband on. Most little ones pull them off immediately. And try to eat them, like she did her dress. hahaha

Jenny the Pirate said...
