My grandson has a new hat to wear in his young little life. He is now a Big Brother. He has taken to the role quite admirably, and is learning how to entertain his baby sister and make her giggle, and laugh out loud. Since I shared pictures of Miss Madison last week I felt it was only fitting to share the pictures I have gathered of the Big Brother and his Baby Sis.
The most delightful thing to watch is when Evan walks in the room, and Madison spots him. Her face lights up with love and delight for her Big Brother. And then she watches every move he is making, just wishing she could be chasing him around the room.
It goes without saying that these two will indeed experience all of the usual brother-sister loves and hates. But in their first year together, it has been amazing to witness the instantaneous, loving and adoring relationship that is developing.
The center picture in the top row of this collage is the first time that Evan got to hold his baby sister. Doesn’t he look so proud? I just love that picture. The rest of the pictures are simple moments that my daughter and I have captured since Miss Madison arrived last November. I think Evan’s taken to his new hat quite well, and will be a great Big Brother!!

Our beautiful, baby granddaughter is already 6 months old. She is growing and changing so quickly that I wanted to share a little pictorial of her life from birth to six months.
Madison is the rock star at our family parties, and wants so badly to be running around with her big brother, Evan. She is already sitting, crawling, and pulling herself up on the furniture. My daughter calls her “the little daredevil”.
This collection of pictures was taken by almost everyone in my family. We love to post and share our pictures on our family Facebook page. It’s a great way to share the family happenings with relatives who don’t live near by.
Isn’t it amazing to see the transformation of this little being in one group of pictures. I get a little awe-struck every time I look at all of them, and think, we were just welcoming Madison into the world last November. Wow!
The sweetest moments with Madison are the moments her big brother walks into the room. Evan says a sweet hello to her, and Madison’s face lights up with a huge smile. That’s the kind of moment where you just want to put the world around on “pause” for a while, and savor the love that surrounds you.
