Then, we FINALLY got to meet my sweet little niece Lyla! I could have loved on her all weekend. She is absolutely beautiful. I forgot how tiny newborns are. When we first got there Adeline had a death grip on me, but when her Aunt Amanda got there she let me put her down and then Lyla was all mine! I bounced her right to sleep then I got to get some snuggle time in.

The next picture isn't all that great, but I had to share it. Adeline really surprised me with how she acted toward Lyla. She was very sweet & gentle. She would come over every now & then & very lightly pat her & act like she was going to kiss her, but never actually put her lips on her. She was also very ok with me holding her. I think she's going to be a great big sister!
My super talented & very sweet MIL made Adeline & Lyla matching outfits. Aren't they adorable?
One of the "almost" kisses :)
After getting to Pappy & Nana's house, Adeline was ready to run outside like a wild child. She chased this ball almost all over their 1 acre yard.
Then she decided she needed to sprinkle some dirt on it.....
For dinner my parents grilled hamburgers & hot dogs & Big T, Tiny, Tater Tot, & Conley all joined us. After we ate Adeline was hamming it up. We were playing outside and we were all standing around her in a circle. She was dancing and running and jumping all around in the middle of us. Then she'd clap & look at each & every one of us to make sure we were clapping too. It was hilarious!
*Her 2T shorts that will fit when it's warm enough in NWA, are still too big right now, so we lost those after dinner.
As the sun started to go down, we walked back to my parents' pond & Adeline walked (or ran) nearly the entire way there & back.
Looking at the water with her 2 grandpas. I love how much she's loved!
We had such a fun day. Insomnia has struck again and I've had a total of 8 hours of sleep the past 2 nights combined. Tomorrow will be packed full and I've already stayed up way later than I said I was. I really hope I can sleep all night.
