What a good big sister!

The other day Ella took it upon herself to read a book to Ryder. The pics look cute, but let me tell you she was quite bossy with him. "Ryder don't touch, Ryder be still!" She also insisted upon him sitting on her lap. She also decided to try and teach him how to crawl. Probably because when Ella was his age she had been crawling for a month and pulling up on things. So she thought she was an expert and that he needed her instruction. I have to try and capture her sweet big sister moments. Trust me these moments don't come very often.

He is almost as big as her.

His face kind of tells how well this lesson went.
It may look like he is looking at the book, but he always has his eyes on me when his sister is around. He wants to make sure Mommy will be there for the rescue at any moment. Trust me, baby boy, I will always be there to rescue you!!!

Hahahaha I'm sitting here thinking that Ryder probably weighs almost what Ella does. He's a big boy! Soon enough he will be able to carry his own!

What a great big sister! Those pictures are pretty sweet. Ryder's face in the one where Ella is giving him a little push is priceless!!

It is a good thing Ryder is so easy going, I hope he stays that way. And Ella's outfits always crack me up!

What sweet pictures!! I love the ones of Ella trying to teach him to crawl. I think next time you should put him in a pair of those tights!!!

I love that first picture of her reading, but just picturing her telling him to sit still makes me laugh! I am sure when he gets a little older, he will let her know what he thinks! Brenden used to just scream if Austin even looked at him :)

That is so funny. Ella just cracks me up! I love the pics of her reading to him. I have some pics of Jordan reading to Jacob when he was a baby. I like to look at them when they are fighting...it reminds me of more peaceful times!

That is so sweet! ANd funny! She's taking her big sister responsibilities very seriously. Just think...some girl is gonna be really lucky to catch him when he's older. Taylor has an older sister, and now he can handle my moods and is so laid-back. THis is all just good marriage training for Ryder!
