Crib Surprise!

This morning, after Tanner woke up at 6am, I put him back down at 7:30 am. About 8:30 I heard him softly talking in his crib. I was online - looking at pictures of Temples posted on Facebook's club The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints site. There are some pretty gorgeous pictures. So, I just let him coo, and softly talk in a contented way. He started getting louder, like he was tired of being in his crib and I was about to go get him, but then it got quite - I thought he had fallen asleep. So, I finished looking at the pictures - I was able to see 200 of the 430 posted before I got tired of it!!!

I walked over to his room to check on him, and this is what I saw....

****Notice the rocking chair pushed up to the side of the crib - That chair is usually in the hallway - where I do time out for the girls when we are upstairs.********


I heard Tanner's mobile going, and looked in the crib and saw - Lindsey!!!! Loving on her little brother. She loves him so much!!! I said, with a smile, "Lindsey! Did you climb up there?" and she said, "yes, Baby Tanner was crying!" She had to turn him over - he sleeps on his stomach - and scoot him towards the mobile. She accomplished all of this without making Tanner cry, and much to my surprise, he was happily content with Lindsey snuggling him and watching his mobile with him. Lindsey really dose love Tanner, and she makes quite a great big sister!

Claire, that is the sweetest and scariest surprise! I probably would have freaked out! Especially if it was Taylor, because I can bet you that he would not have been so loving!!! What a precious little girl you have....I love that LLLLinsday! ;)

Oh, what a sweetie! Your girls have always been that way for as long as I have known them. I remember when Phoebe was a baby and Hannah was always wanting to touch her or be around her. On Sunday I only had 2 kids in Nursery so we joined Senior Nursery for singing time. Lindsey got up twice to go over and kiss Phoebe on the mouth (which Phoebe didn't mind of course and luckily neither one of them is sick!) Both your girls are great with Tanner and I am so proud of what wonderful big sisters they are!

Claire, that is the sweetest thing ever! I totally got a lump in my throat when I saw that picture of Lindsey laying there with Tanner. So cute! :D
