Today was a full-on mothering day, but it was good!
Andrew is at such an awesome stage. He loves to love on his sister, he loves to love on his daddy and me. He even loves on Fenway, lucky dog.
He seems so, so grown up to me now - like a little boy, not much of a toddler anymore. I know I'll look back at this time and think he really was still such a baby, but for now, he's practically grown.
He gets his own ice water out of the refrigerator door, puts the peanut butter on his waffle, potties on the potty! (More about that in a later post.) This morning he even turned Mickey on on the TV with very little help from me.
We went to dinner on Friday night at a very grown-up restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I got a sitter for Caroline and chose to take Andrew with us. I really like him! And he's fun.
He stayed up until 11PM that night and hadn't had a nap. I thought for sure he'd crash, but he never did. Finally he looked at us and said, "I think I'll go upstairs and get my blankie now." Ha!
So today we were together from 8AM till he finally went to bed at 9PM. He didn't even have quiet time in his room. He starts back at MDO tomorrow after a three week break. I'm looking forward to the short break, but I will miss him, just a little bit.
