Meet Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro

Isn't he a handsome baby?! He has the most gorgeous skin... He's delicious! This is Brailey's teacher's first baby, Alejandro, and we got to meet them for dinner the other night. Let me just tell you, he is so sweet, snugly, adorable, handsome, and precious - mmmmph! And he is such a good baby! And he is more than blessed to have the mother he has - she is amazingly calm and collected and even well-rested for a new mom (I wish I had been more like her!). We had such a good time with them...! Savannah, Alejandro's mom, was Brailey's third grade teacher, and the two of them had a real connection with each other - Brailey sobbed and sobbed the day she left on her maternity leave. She was so excited to meet Savannah and her baby for dinner she could hardly handle the anticipation. It was worth all the excitement, though, because she got to hold Ale (his nickname), which she was dying to do and it truly thrilled her to pieces. She also read a report to Savannah that she had written on Wildflowers (all by herself as part of her journaling we are doing this summer), and Savannah was more than happy to not only listen to the report, but to hear that Brailey is now loving to read and going through the Boxcar Children series, one of her own personal favorites. It was such a special evening full of love and happiness. A night we shall never forget and we look forward to repeating soon!
