Sweet smiles, precious curls,
and a loving big brother...
what more could I want?
Lately after naps, Will has been wanting to climb into Ellie's crib to cuddle her.
He calls her "Ellie, my sweetheart."
Oh how I love this!
Sunny days make for
And bike rides with Mommy!
Ellie doesn't have the strength (yet) to hold herself up in our bike trailer so for now, Will can ride behind Daddy in the trailer & I've got a seat up front for Ellie!
We love our bike rides!
I love how much these two are playing together lately!
Playing pretend with Ellie's zoo...
and even some baseball!
While taping Ellie last night, I tried using my new ipad (I won it just before Christmas! How fun!) to entertain her. She is getting very antsy now and difficult to tape as she wiggles and resists it a lot.
She liked the animal videos and did pretty well last night so this might be my new answer.
But she especially enjoyed entertainment by Will!
While she was being taped, he kissed her and said,
"Ellie, I'm so sorry you have to be taped. I wish your toes pointed the right way and I'm just sorry you have to wear tape."
I told him how sweet he was and what a good big brother and I reminded him he will always be her protector.
To which he replied,
"I'll also be her king. And God is my king so me and God will be king over Ellie."
Not so sure how well that will go over in a few years!
I have noticed while looking at schools that apparently four and five year olds know how to use computers. I haven't really ever done computer games with Will - he loves to play outside and can play pretend games for hours so I haven't wanted to mess with introducing computer games...
but I felt some pressure and don't want him to be behind so I let him play one for thirty minutes today while Ellie slept and I got ready.
He loved it & did great- I don't think he will have any problem catching up!
