A few weeks ago, Uncle Kevin & Aunt Annie invited Alex to come and spend the weekend at their house. We met halfway for lunch at McDonalds, kissed our little guy goodbye, and then Max and I headed home.
Max dozed in the car, waking when I pulled into the garage. We came inside, and this sweet little one looks around and says, “Ah-leex? Ah-leex? Alex bye bye!!!”
Max headed straight for Alex’s bedroom, where he climbed up on Alex’s bed with a big grin on his face.
He rolled around, jumped, giggled, and got away with things that his big brother would never allow…
Then he realized he had complete freedom to read Alex’s books – without having them torn from his fingers by a jealous big brother!
When he finished “reading”, he played on the chair for a bit.
Then he realized there was no one to tell him where to steer Alex’s shopping cart, so he pushed the groceries all around the house.
Max also got to “help” Daddy put together the new kitchen chairs, and he had the box from the table all to himself. Check out the snuggles from a happy Max: …and the happy giggles when Daddy paid attention to him.
The second child definitely doesn’t get as many “one on one” moments with Mommy or Daddy as the first. We really enjoyed this chance to just love on our little guy! Thanks, Kevin & Leanne, for giving our big guy a fun weekend while we got to enjoy Max!
