Packrat's been wanting to try the new McGriddle for sometime. So we decided yesterday to go out for an extremely early 6 am breakfast before sending him to work. Because Baby J was with us, she got to come too. I didn't bother to take her out of her PJs so the little munchkin went to Macs in her PJs and seemed fine with it. She had loads of fun, being in a different high chair, playing with straws and shredding serviettes to her heart's content. On top of her cereal, which I packed along, she had bits of egg yolk from my muffin and some of the muffin bread. Of course, Mommy felt bad for giving her the muffin because she seemed so thirsty after that. This is her first time at Macs. Evan went to Macs when he was a wee baby but he spent most of it asleep in the sarong sling.
This is him now. About 6 1/2 months later. We've discovered that Evan is the quintessential boy, loving anything to do with balls and wheels on it. He laughs hysterically when you throw a ball up in the air or bounce it all around. He also likes going after toy cars or trucks; he'd crawl after them or use them to support himself as he struggles to toddles around. He's got 2 or 3 modes, that boy. Either he's sleeping or he's standing and wanting to walk or crawl. There's nothing in between. Sitting is the transitory stage between lying down and standing up. Lying down is the transitory stage between sleeping and being awake. In his world, it's pretty much, why waste time? I have places to go and things to see.
Anyway, since these were shots of my kids at play, I decided to use this opportunity to introduce their playmate and cousin, Becca. She's 9 months older than the twins. I remember this because, she was born the day I found out that I was pregnant with the twins. Anyway, whenever we're at my mom's, Jordan follows her around like a little puppy dog and she, to get as much attention as her younger cousins get, will revert back to crawling around even though she's quite stable on her stubby little legs. Here, to get here out of everyone's way as we load up the car, I plonk her in the boot where she happily sat and watched the bustle around her, adding her continuous stream of consciousness baby babble that is interspersed with the occasional real word like ' why?' 'Byebye!' "Mame' etc. She's the funniest baby I know, muttering non-stop, pretending to hold conversations in all seriousness, aping all those around her. I hope Baby J grows up to be like her and Evan to be like Becca's sweet older brother .
