A Visit With Baby B (and his mama)

Way back in July, Baby B came to visit---along with his mama, Jana, of course.  I hate living so far away from them, but am so grateful for technology such as cameras, computers, phones and Facetime, that all make the world a little bit smaller.  This time together, both Baby D and Baby B were much more aware of each other, and Baby D liked him just fine. . . . .
as long as he wasn't touching him.
While they were visiting Shreveport, Baby D celebrated his first birthday! (how is that even possible????)  
Callie and Jordan had a nice, family birthday party for him, with dinner, presents and birthday cake.  I made special outfits for the boys, but it was hard to get them to sit still long enough for a picture.

There was a loose "Hungry Caterpillar" theme, but it became a little more solid when he received 4 different kinds of caterpillar toys as gifts!  Each different and each very cute!
Baby D was not at all sure what to do with his own personal birthday cake (the head of a home made caterpillar cake), so at first, he just played with it, picking it up, feeling it, etc.
Once mama encouraged him to take a taste, he discovered quite a treat!
With Jordan's side of the family there, there were four generations of boys in the room.  How lucky they are to still be able to spend time with his grandfather!
Baby B is such a happy baby, with a giggle always close at hand.  And when he giggles, everyone arounds him is soon giggling as well.   Soooo sweet!!
He was much more fond of the birthday hat than his cousin was!
We also enjoyed a visit with the Jamar side of the family, who came in to meet Baby B.
One of their cousins, Meredith, was even able to come with her two sweet little ones.
The girls, their boys and I drove down to Cheneyville one morning to surprise Dan with a visit.  He was thrilled to see them!!!  It was a quick visit, but we were able to enjoy lunch together and let him get some hugs from everyone.
One morning, we had an impromptu photo session in the backyard.
That smiley boy loved is sitting alone . . . . most of the time.
He enjoyed being outdoors and watching the dogs, and hammed it up for the camera, too.
Over the weekend, we squeezed in a trip to the lake---so that Callie and Ron could practice for their upcoming triathlon, we could play in the water, and I could snap a few pictures.  Okay, a lot of pictures!  I haven't had time to edit them, so these are SOOC.
It was so nice that Mr. and Mrs. Willis were able to meet up with us on Sunday morning.  As you can tell, baby B was very excited by it, as well.
We had such a good time while they were here and their visit was over WAY too soon.
