Bennett is a bit enamored with Annabelle. He thinks she is the cutest (don't we all!). Usually the kids are really good at leaving her alone. I can walk into the kitchen and not worry that she will be attacked (unless by Miles and his relentless kisses!). But today when I was bringing water out to everyone I caught my love bug Bennett pulling Annabelle, ever so gently, out from under her play gym. I asked him what he was doing and he said "I hold baby Annabelle." Melt my heart. While we had a conversation about how he could hold Annabelle, while I was there to pick her up, etc he looked at me and absent-mindedly 'petted' Annabelle. It was adorable!
By the way - we are going to work on the baby Annabelle thing. While I think it is cute that my boys call her that, I don't think she will appreciate being called baby Annabelle by her cousins for the rest of her life!
