Ryley + Henry = BFF

And the love affair continues...





Ryley's always at his side and if he cries she runs over to him. Yesterday morning as I got ready for work, Henry was in the living room in his exersaucer and started crying. Immediately Ryley ran over, laid her head down, and sat patiently as he happily tugged and played...keeping him occupied for a few extra minutes while I finished up. It's like that dog in Peter Pan...a built in babysitter! These pictures are without any prompting from us, no staging for a kodak moment. This is just a typical sight in the Gibson house lately.

(and before anyone panics, yes, we are always watching and nearby...)

Notice how he isn't smiling in any of the pictures...

talvez eu devo começar um cão ajudar com as crianças que nosso hampster não é muita de uma baby-sitter

You crack me up Jacquelyn! Yes, hamsters probably dont make the best babysitters...but dogs do shed and they need walked and vet visits...hamsters, not so much.

Love it...this is exactly how I want our dog to be with our kid. She wouldn't hurt a fly, so I know she'll be great - but after so many opinions from others regarding the dog vs. baby - it's nice to see other people who think it's awesome that they have such a neat relationship!

i'm calling the CPS in both the united states AND portugal to report you guys for letting your baby near a dog. heehee!

i think that is so cute, can you imagine the bond he's going to have with those dogs as he gets older?! SO ADORABLE!
