Ian's cousin, Natalie, has come to Liberty Hill to visit. We went over to see her last week and let the two of them interact. She absolutely adores him, and he is captivated by her. Natalie is incredibly gentle with Ian and loves to hug and kiss him. Whenever she is "holding" him (someone is always within arms reach since Ian tends to dive to one side or the other without much notice) she instructs me to "take a picture." I'm sure that she will be instructing Ian on what he can and cannot do in the not-too-distant future!
After picture time, MomMom helped Ian have his first ride on the rocking cow. He did a good job of holding on and keeping himself upright, but his favorite part was chewing on the horns. It looks like he rocked himself to sleep, but he just happened to blink his eyes when the picture was taken.
