A Visit from the Northern Tundra!

Last Thursday, my SIL Rebecca, and her sweet baby boy, Taylor, came down from Minnesota for some good ‘ole Florida sunshine!! Rebecca said she needed a break from all the cold and snow. I don’t blame her. I wouldn’t last one winter season up there!! … We hadn’t seen Rebecca since Thanksgiving and we had never met Taylor, so it was a real treat to see them! We weren’t expecting to see them until our annual beach vacation in June!! So glad we got to see them unexpectedly!

Taylor is such a smiley and sweet little boy! He is the spitting image of David’s brother, Casey. Something about those Smith genes. All our babies are born looking just like their daddies! I’m looking forward to meeting Jona (David’s older brother’s daughter due in June) and Finley. I wonder if they will look like their daddies too?! Only time will tell!

We met up for lunch at Mama Jean and Papa’s house (David’s grandparents) who live just down the street from us. It was their first time meeting Taylor as well. We took a few pictures of the kids and Papa. This was the best one I had on my camera.

Then, we put the kids on the couch for a photo session. They were so cute together!! I love this first picture of Taylor making eyes and smiling at his momma! Cori wasn’t sure what to think about all of this at first, but then she warmed up. After a while she got right up in Taylor’s face as she spoke all kinds of baby talk to him. Then, she must have decided she really liked this cousin of hers because she leaned in to give him a kiss ON THE LIPS! haha! So sweet!

We had such a great time visiting with them and can’t wait until we get to spend a week together at the beach!! It’s only 7 weeks away!! Wahoo!

Here is one last picture of Cori from our visit that day. She loves getting right up in the camera and then seeing herself on the viewing screen. This picture cracks me up. Check out those teeth!!
