A Playdate With A Loverly Little Lady.

On Saturday Joe and I got an eensy weensy taste of what it might be like to be a family of four...for all of about 5 hours. My friend, Jackie (yes, of bleu soleil design) had her brother's wedding, so Joe and I watched her adorable daughter, Leighton, so she and her hubs could get their groove thang on @ the reception.

It was so. much. fun. Lei Lei is about 6 months older than Alex, so they were close enough in age to interact and play together. I swear, babies have their own language - they "talked" and laughed in a sea of Fisher Price, Leap Frog and Mega Blocks until they both literally passed out from too much fun.

They look like they could be related - those big, sweet eyes!
(We were watching Monsters, Inc.)

Lei Lei fed Alex some chicky nuggs and fries. I about melted.

"Here, baby." She would say.

It's a little dark in the background, but Alex
was still playing after Lei Lei cashed out.
He would crawl up to her, touch her face, and crawl away.
So sweet.

The jury's still out on whether or not we'll ever actually be a family of 4, but it sure was fun to pretend for a night.

SOOOOO cute, Kristi.
I just love it, I could die right here!

I am surprised Leighton did not eat all the chicken nuggets herself, as she loves herself some of those with fries.

I am so glad they got to play together!

"Here, baby". <---- That is the most precious EVER

OMG. Did you die from the cuteness that occurred at your house? Because I'm dying just reading about it. And how sweet is Alex that he would crawl over to her, touch her face, and then go on his merry way??
