I have pictures similar to these of Shae and Joey when he was around the same age that Makayla is now.
Joey was a little older -- almost 9 months old, where Makayla is only almost 7 months old. But still: just a little bit of history repeating.
Shae loves her cousins, and Shae loves babies, so Makayla + baby + cousin = Shae's personal brand of catnip.
Coat Makayla in a fine layer of Dorito dust and Shae would never leave her alone. Not that she does anyway.
Okay, every once in a while -- but never for long.
And only for Very Important Projects, like taking late afternoon naps with Pop-pop in the dappled shade of the redbud tree in the side yard. And even then -- never for long.
