Water Night at WBC!

Last night was Water Night at our church, Warren Baptist Church. I knew that they would have inflatable water slides for the kids and some smaller pools and things for the little ones. I thought Connor would only do the small baby pools. I did not think he would want to do the water slides, mainly because you slide into a pool of water. He doesn't like to get his face and head wet at the pool, so I did not think he would like sliding into the pool of water. Well, I was WRONG! He loved the slides! He amazed me with how brave he was and how excited he would get on the slides! He did every slide over and over and over again. He did not want to leave. But, unfortunately, we had not had dinner, so after an hour and a half of sliding, I finally made him leave! I was so proud of him and loved watching him have such a great time!

Mimi's House

The boys had a great time playing at Mimi's house.  Connor LOVES playing with the old Micro-Machines (little bitty cars and trucks) and old matchbox cars.  He could spend hours playing in a room off of Mimi and Bobble's room that we have started calling "the playroom"!  He was up bright and early every morning to play with Mimi and all of the cars. 

Kyle had a great time playing with all of the toys at Mimi's house, too, but we had to keep him out of the playroom most of the time because of the Micro-Machines that he wanted to eat! 



Both boys loved playing on Mimi's piano!  Maybe we have a future musician in the family!


This is a picture of Connor "teaching" Kyle how to play the piano!


And, of course, we had to visit the ride on cars at the mall!

Huntsville Botanical Gardens

After we left the birthday weekend in Atlanta, Connor, Kyle and I headed to Huntsville to spend the week with Mimi. While we were there, we went to the Huntsville Botanical Gardens. It was so much fun! The gardens have treehouses throughout with all sorts of fun things...ladders, a pirate ship, a tire swing, water features, and much more! Connor had a great time! It was a lot of fun for all of us, actually! I hope we can go back next summer and do it again. Next year, Kyle will be able to enjoy it from outside of the stroller!

Sesame Street Live

A few weeks ago, Connor and I had a date to Sesame Street Live! It was so much fun to spend the morning with Connor and to watch him enjoy the show! He loved singing and dancing to the music. He, also, loved the sno cone that I bought him! I love doing things with both of my boys, but it was nice to spend some one-on-one time with Connor. He was so good and had such a great time!

Before the show started:


Smiling!


Dancing!

Big Day for Granddaddy!

Happy Retirement Granddaddy!



Today is my dad's last day as Athletic Director at LaGrange College. He has been AD at LC for 42 years! And, before that, he had been a coach at Troup High School in LaGrange for 9 years. So, he is retiring from 51 years in athletics! He has taught, coached, and mentored students for over half of a century!

We are proud of you, Granddaddy!  And, we look forward to seeing you more often!  We know that you and Sunshine are going to enjoy your new "life of leisure,"  but we also know that you will still be at as many ballgames as you can make.  The only downside of you retiring is that Connor's really going to miss going to work with Granddaddy! 

Here is a link to an article from the LaGrange Daily News about Connor and Kyle's Granddaddy!

Distinguished Career for Williamson

Happy Retirement Granddaddy!  We Love You!

Me: "Who loves you so much?"
Connor (without any hesitation): "Everybody!"

I'm so glad that he has such confidence!

My Sweet Boys

I love these two boys SO MUCH! And, one of the things that I love SO MUCH is that they love each other SO MUCH! Connor is so good to Kyle. If Kyle cries, Connor comes to find out why and tries to make him smile. Kyle loves to watch Connor and laughs at him and with him constantly. One of Kyle's favorite things is to try to climb on top of Connor. Connor is so good and lets him climb all over him and they just laugh and laugh at themselves. I love it!

Connor pretty much ignored Kyle for the first three months of his life. He did not dislike Kyle and was not mean to him in any way. He just ignored him for the most part. He didn't even say his name for three months; he just called him "Baby" if he talked about him at all. Slowly, Connor started paying more attention to Kyle, but then Kyle started moving around and getting into Connor stuff around 6 months old. Connor would say "Kyle's got my toys! Get Kyle, get Kyle, get Kyle!" Now, Kyle is into everything and loves to be near Connor and near Connor's stuff. he crawls over his own toys to get to Connor's stuff. And, Connor has started to share with him! Yesterday, he said, "Here Kyle. You can play with these cars and I will play with these cars!" Also, yesterday, I had to put Kyle in the Exersaucer (which he HATES) while I cooked dinner. When Kyle started fussing, Connor got one of Kyle's toys and took it to him and then he started singing silly songs to him without me asking him to do so! It was so sweet!

We are very blessed by these two boys! I love how they interact with each other. It is a blessing to watch them grow up!









These next two pictures are of Connor and Jeremy building a Lowe's baseball project that Jeremy bought. It was a a little project that Jeremy bought for them to build together. Connor loved working with Jeremy and using the hammer!








And, one more shot of the little guy!

Chopsticks

When we went to the beach a few weeks ago, we went to dinner at a Japanese restaurant one night. The waitress passed out chopsticks to everyone, including kid-friendly ones that were attached together at the top to teach kids how to use them. Connor LOVED them! He ate his entire dinner with them...and ate really well!
