31 for 21: A Sibling Story

31 for 21 continues with Sibling Saturday:

Elijah happily goes along to support his big sister for Step up for Down syndrome walks, special
Olympics, and many doctors appointment.

This summer it was Jaycee's turn to support her brother. Elijah was old enough to join the t-ball league. We weren't sure how Jaycee would do watching Elijah at the baseball games. Would she try to run on the field? Would she even pay attention to him?

The first practice Jaycee attended was really neat. She watched with me from behind the fence. She cupped her mouths around her mouth and cheered, "Bubba bubba!" while signing baseball.

When he made a hit, she followed my cue and cheered for him. It was so nice to see her support him. It was the first time she had really been in this role as big sister. And she knew how to do it!
