Oh Baby! Gray's stay with Aunt "Jo"

Well I am telling you Gray and I had the best time ever!!! Gray came to stay with Matt and I from Sunday night until Wednesday evening. She is the best baby and is so much stink'in fun!!! I took a ton of pictures as any good aunt would. I would not want to waste your time by posting over 30 pictures so I will just share my two favorite. I must say that between the 6 feedings, 2 naps, endless diper changes, snacks and the ability to crawl all over my apartment at great speed I am worn out from her stay. I never thought I would say that but she gave me a run for my money. I give it to all you moms out there....it really is a FULL time job. Gray is such a big girl now.....we took her shopping, went to the pool two times, Kroger, Tom Thumb, Target and Walmart......all with success I might add (now of course that was all spread out in between 3 days and 6 naps but she did a great job!) Another favorite part of our week was her bedtime routine....she is too cute and hardly cries when she goes down for a nap or at bedtime. Every evening Matt and I would take her to our guest room and pray with her before bed....she almost always would touch your face while we prayed and then smile....too sweet. Then she laid down in the bed an cupped her baby giraffe to her face and was so content. Lucky parents Christy and Todd.
Look at that smile....I could just eat her up!!! I think I gave her about 1,000 kisses while she was here....just enough to last her until the next time she comes. Little bit is a blue eyed toe head...which I adore but poor thing like the rest of us were......almost bald....just does still not have much hair. My sister and I took her shopping on her last day and we got her some cute new outfits and of course Aunt Jo insisted that she get a bow...they have kinds for babies with not much hair:) My sister finally agreed and she now is the happy owner of 4 new bows to go with her outfits...so fun!!

I love this little face that she makes. She squishes up her face and then blows out her nose....it is so funny....she does it over and over....I just happened to catch the face while she was doing it. I love you baby Gray and Aunt Jo can't wait until you come back to visit.
