This train-loving 2 year old has had a busy summer. Well, now that I say that I'm not sure that I'd call it busy since we stayed home most of the summer and were actually inside a lot (remember, we've got a new born in the house folks), but Griffin is a busy body and is always on the go...even if it's just to the island of Sodor - a very busy place in Griffin's vivid imagination.
Here are a few highlights of the summer:
|Griffin and Dada had their first "Big Boys Night" complete with a movie, pop corn and beverages! Mama had a night out with some friends and G had a fun night with Chad. He was excited about staying up late and watching a new movie.|
|All snuggled up and ready to watch!|
|Me and my sweet boy! I love this picture.|
|We have had MANY indoor picnic lunches this summer. It usually means that Mama is too |
|The show was at the fabulous Fox theater so we, of course, ate dinner at the Varsity and then walked (that's right - walked!) to the Fox for the show. I'm not sure who was more excited about it, the boys or Chad and me.|
So, I'd say Griffin's first summer as a big brother was a huge success. There was a lot of change and a lot of growing up which is very bitter sweet for this Mama. I'm so proud of the big boy he is becoming but a little emotional - okay very emotional (typing through tears now) - about the baby boy he is leaving behind.
Okay, enough mushy stuff. I'll leave you with something to laugh about. Chad and I are afraid G might get kicked out of school tomorrow because he has - all of a sudden - become super interested in his penis and wants to "take it out" and talk about it all the time. Tonight in the bath tub he told a story that started like this..."One day, the penis...." Thankfully it trailed off from there but he repeated that intro about 50 times. I'm sure the fact that Chad and I were laughing our heads off didn't help the fact. Oh well. Boys will be boys and they sure are FUN!
