Cousin Moments

We're back, by the way. I'm still in a post-vacation fog, so I'm way behind on everything. These are some photos taken in front of my parents house in Idaho. My brother and his family were there, so we were lucky to have all three grandkids together for the first time.

I think these don't need much explanation. Trying to get a photo of a 6-month-old who can't sit up alone, an 8-month-old who recently learned to crawl, and a 2-year-old who seems to be quite nervous around the 8-month-old. Probably because he weighs as much as her and could knock her flat on the ground. The only thing she has on him is speed. And molars.

I don't think Sophie wants to sit next to Carter.

See? She looks a little relieved.

Ah yes, much better.

See how they share? Such good girls.

Sophie's keeping her eye on Carter, though.

You know he's up to something when he gives his sign. (And yes, Ivy and Carter are only 2 1/2 months apart.)

Oh, look. An eye.

I love the commentary and the last picture. :)

Jessica said...

So funny. I love your commentary on the whole thing.

That was probably the funniest post I've seen in a while. I love stories told in the progression of photos like this. 'oh look, an eye'.

Cute pictures and cute kids!! They make me laugh cuz I can relate! Are those lilacs at your mom's?! Mine are so long gone. *sigh*

That was awesome... Hopefully you will have a boy sometime so Carter will have someone he can pick on... that won't get hurt.

Aw, how cute! Ivy is so petite! She looks like a little doll! And that last picture is the CUTEST!

Devin said...

Andrea thinks that makes our little boy look like a hellion...But I just think that you need to have a boy so he can toughen your little girls up! :)

Natalie said...

Hellion? Please.... Andrea is probably the only one who thought that. Carter is a sweet, active, curious little (sorta)guy. Emphasis on the active. My girls are just emotional -- like most girls. That's just the difference between girls and boys.

I would laugh so hard if Ivy ended up being taller than Carter. You know it's a possibility, little bro :)
