Zane and Emerson are buddies these days. I think Zane really loves having someone to "play" with, which really means to listen to him, watch him, laugh at him, and let him give and take toys away from. Emerson also likes having someone to "play" with, which really means to sing and dance for her, growl at her, and give her toys back. By the way, a sidenote...In all of these pictures and videos she's trapped in her Bumbo seat, but Emerson really does spend time in other places besides there...I promise.

Zane has been teaching Emmy new things lately. The other day, she was holding a ball and he said, "Look at me, Emmy. Do this." and he showed her the motion of throwing.
Here, he's teaching her how to share a blanket, he's teaching her how to do "cheers" with their cups and yes, he is wearing Mickey Mouse ears.

He's getting more creative in the ways he makes her laugh. He didn't even know I was watching when I caught him playing with her toy to make her laugh in the first video.

In the second video, he was reading to Emerson and showing her pictures. Then, when she was reading this one, he started pointing and saying "dog"to show her how to say it and what it was.

It is so incredibly sweet how well the two of them "play" together!! Keep the videos and pictures coming... Those of us far away love seeing your kids as they grow!!

Awwww how sweet!

This is why I want to have a boy first, because big brothers are so much better than big sisters. Big brothers play and teach, big sisters tend to torment.
I remember when we were little, I just dressed up Randy like a girl a lot. I was awful.
