"What Time is it Mr. Crocodile?"

Nathan loves to be propped up to see where the action is.

Elisabeth (looking like a "ragamuffin" as my mom used to say when our hair and clothes looked that bad!)

"What Time is it Mr. Crocodile?" is Elisabeth's favorite book that we bought her last fall at a book fair. You can tell how much she loves Nathan. I hopped in the shower 2 weeks ago and left Nathan propped up on a pillow on top of the bed. I heard Elisabeth talking and giggling with Nathan. When I got out of the shower this is what I found:

Even though Elisabeth still treats Nathan like one of her baby dolls, she loves him immensely. She had climbed up next to him and was reading the book as best as she could to him. I think as they get older, Nathan is going to follow her around like a puppy dog. I firmly believe that she is likely going to be the one that helps Nathan the most to overcome the speech problems that he is going to face with his cleft palate. She LOVES to sit and talk to him and read him stories.

I love the picture of Elisabeth reading to her little brother. Those are the moments that make being a mother so wonderful. I hope you had a wonderful Mothers Day!
