BUDDIES


Adam and I were commenting this evening after FHE how lucky we are that the transition from only child to big brother has been such a smooth one for Spencer. He and Emma get along wonderfully. Emma loves to watch Spencer show off all his tricks, and Spence will sit down to "read" to Em, stop to make sure she is watching his antics, or give her a running dialogue on what is happening. Tonight's commentary was, "Right now we're getting ready and then we're going to Grammy's house, Emma. We have to get our shoes on."

They are good pals. Spencer remembers Emma in his prayers and when it is time to kiss everyone goodnight. Emma gets a big wet one on the back of her head. (We figure that is a safe spot even when runny noses are involved).

This cute photo captures a sweet little moment. Spencer was leaning against the way-comfy green "nap" couch pillow, so on a whim we "flew" Emma down to land on his back. Emma thought that was hilarious fun, and Spencer kept saying, "Again!" and laughing when Emma "landed." Sweet kiddies. I'm pretty sure I'm the luckiest Mom around. These little ones keep me smiling!

p.s. Noteworthy: the awesome sandbox behind Spencer and Emma in the top picture is Gpa W's latest creation. He built it big enough so that all six grandkids can have digging space and be playing at the same time. So...Peter, Leslie, Emily, and JL...now we just have to get all our cuties together with THEIR shovels and OUR cameras. :0)

SO DARLING! What good looking kiddos! I'm so glad to hear that Spencer is such a great big brother. Since your kids are 1 month older than ours it gives me hope that soon we will turn the corner into that stage. Linc is just barely starting to recognize Tad as a person, I think it makes the moments when they do connect and make each other laugh all the sweeter, though...

Cute kiddos! I love that they have so much fun together. Doesn't that make you so happy!:) I can't believe that Emma is already 6 months. Time flies! She is so cute and a good size little girl.
