Last week I took you on a short trip to Grammy’s house. Daddy had a ton of school work to do and I figured we should let him concentrate on it. So we hopped in the car and headed to Marion Station. You do so much better in the car now that you have your little DVD player and you can watch Mickey Mouse. Thank God for technology!
When we got there it was so beautiful outside and we were hungry so we went to lunch at Waterman’s and got you your first ice cream cone which you devoured on the Crisfield dock. You were an absolute mess but you enjoyed every second of it, and so did I.
After you finished your ice cream, I let you out of the stroller and you ran around the dock trying to chase birds and getting frustrated when they would fly away. It was adorable.
We brought you back to Grammy’s and I gave you a nice long bath in her big claw foot tub. You absolutely loved it. I was worried about putting you to sleep in my old crib at her house. I thought you may be scared of sleeping in that room alone in her house (I still am!) but of course you did great. You cried for about 10 seconds and then went to sleep on your own. Always making me so proud of you little peanut.
I love watching you with your Grammy. You love to sit on her lap and have her sing to you. I think something in you senses that you are the same blood as her. You really enjoyed being at her house because there was so much new stuff to explore and get into. And I loved watching you take it all in.
You are a lucky little boy to be so loved by so many people. But most of all, mama. I’m glad that you had such a fun few days there. It gives me such joy to see you so happy. You are changing and growing so quickly and it’s amazing to watch.
I love you to the moon and back.
