Meeting the Cousins

This past weekend, the babies got to meet most of their cousins for the very first time!  Now that Ayden and Rylee have reached the 3 month mark, they will be meeting lots of family and friends.  No more quarantine for us!  We will still be careful letting them around anybody that is, or has been, sick.  We are just finally coming out of isolation.  Woo Hoo!

I cannot even begin to tell you how excited the nieces and nephews were to meet the babies.  They have been asking about them since they were in my belly.

First was the cousins from Tony's side of the family.  They came over to meet the babies on Friday.  They couldn't get enough of them!  They kept oohing and awwwwing over how small they were, until they held Ayden.  They thought he was pretty heavy!  Ha!  Welllll, he kind of is.  They couldn't stop touching the babies.  The 4 year old didn't really want to hold the babies, but she couldn't stop touching them.  It was really cute.  On Saturday, she did finally decide to hold Ayden, but thought he was really heavy so was ready to give him back!  She held out long enough for a few pictures!  The 6 year old was ALL about holding the babies.

My sister brought her family over on Sunday.  The two oldest have been asking to see the babies for a looonnnnggggg time.  In fact, Eliana (age 8) was ready to meet them way back in October!  Of course I told her she was going to have to wait.

Funny story.  About a month ago, Sis came by to drop something off for us, but all the kids stayed in the car with their dad.  Tony went out to say hi to them.  Steven, the oldest boy (he's 4), was mad that he couldn't come inside to see the babies.  He asked Tony why HE got to see the them.  Tony told him it was because he's their dad.  Steven said "no you're not!  You're Uncle Tony!"

So finally the cousins got to meet for the first time...
