Well your post certainly didn't describe the situation I expected from the title! I was thinking it would be more along the lines of what goes on in our house all day. . . "Mom, close my nursing so _______ [insert name of one of my children] can't have any!"
That said, what you did describe sounds like pretty typical twin behavior to me. If I were you I would just explain to Adam that indeed you are still happy to be nursing Ava, and that he is more than welcome to join her if he wants.
Sort of off-topic, but I've found that the amount of water I drink in the day is so completely linked to the amount of milk I produce. I know this is obvious, but I'd sort of forgotten about it when we got past the first year. Some days my supply is really low, and my boys will come off and say, "you need some water, mom. . . I want milk in a cup!" If you are concerned about your supply dropping off, try doubling the amount of water you drink in a day.
