pretend

We play pretend a lot these days. Grace is always wanting to do what mommy and daddy do... whether it be fixing a broken toy or cleaning the dishes... she is there being our little shadow.
One thing she has learned is how to feed her hungry baby. She has actually been doing this since shortly after we brought Emma home from the hospital, but this was the first time I was able to capture it on camera. Well this morning when I saw her grab her baby and ask me for the boppy I knew what she was up to so I grabbed my camera.
I'm sure she will hate me one day for posting these pictures, but I couldn't resist. She is getting breastfeeding lessons early!! Funny how her baby must be eating from her belly button?!

So funny! The sad thing....Chandler does the same thing! We've had to tell him Daddy's don't feed babies!

Those are the funniest pictures. It's amazing how much they imitate!

It was great to see you last weekend and meet your two little ones. They are precious!

Love, Aunt Barb.

This is too funny!!Yes, she'll hate you for these pictures, but how could you resist! I love it!!

Sorry Emma has the ckn pox but either way kids get them, and usually just once, so I guess in a way, it's good to get them over now!?!

I wish more daughters saw their own mothers breastfeed....it sure would help get the word out!!!

The things they learn! Too funny.

Did I hear that Emma has chicken pox? Can you get those from your shingles?

Love it...Elle did this when Piper was born and Piper did this when Cannon was born. Never could get a picture either. Lucky you!

Thanks for the lunch box ideas and I did see the article in the Parents magazine.

I did the same thing after my aunt had my cousin. They still talk about it.
