First Encounter with Cousin Abby

Our visit to Raleigh provided Ava the opportunity to meet her first (and thus far only) cousin on Larry's side of the family. While Ava has had plenty of experience holding various baby dolls, we were curious to see how she would react to holding a real live baby.

At first she was a little nervous and afraid to even touch Abby. As an ice breaker, we got Ava to point out different body parts on her cousin.

However, it didn't take long before Ava warmed right up to Abby and was giving her kisses...

...and hugs.

It was absolutely darling to see the two of them together.

What darling little girls. Abby has so much hair! It is so much fun to have a cousin who is close to your age. I hope they become the best of friends!--Granny O
