He may be ready, but I'm not

Kai looked like a regular school boy this weekend. He donned his backpack and marched around the backyard, very importantly, while we did a little yard work.

Well, he may be ready to go off to school, but I'm still savoring his little boy toddler days. Ask me again about it when he's throwing a tantrum. Not our Kai! ;-)

Max-ing Out

On Monday one of my yoga mom friends, Jennifer, and her son Max came over to hang out.
Kai and Max get along really well and thankfully, so do Jenny and I.
First we started with a little watermelon snack.
I think these boys are loving the fruits of summer!
After that, the playing began, and Kai found Jenny's very fashionable hat!
First giving us his, hands behind the back, shy look.
And then, NOT SO SHY. :-)And here is Max in his ever so beloved Elmo shirt. Adorable!

Under the Table and Dreaming

Goes to visit his mommy
She feeds him well, his concerns he forgets them
And remembers being small
Playing under the table and dreaming

Kai seems to think that under the kitchen table is a fun place to be. He climbs over and under and through the table's legs. It's a good time for all.

Can anyone name the song lyrics from the top of this post?

More Style Time

Last weekend, we had a few friends over for dinner. Kai enjoyed following the Style girls around and learning their big kid ways. Here are Eliana and Kai reading books.

And I would venture to guess that the girls were enjoying Julie's Lemon Pie. Yum!

Happy Birthday Eliana!

Last weekend was our friend Eliana's 2nd birthday. Here she is swimming with her dad Tobin.

They had a great pool party, complete with cupcakes and goodie bags, and all the cool kids were out to play. Check out Claire's gear! She's ready to roll.
Kai was working on his pool survival techniques with this elegant, yet efficient, exit strategy. I think the pool was a tad cooler than the pool he swims in for swim class (it's more like a bath).

Like most gatherings here in SD. Kai is often the only boy under 2. Here are a few more of the lovely ladies, Brooke & Carter (oh, and their beautiful moms too)!
Like the gentleman he is, Kai offered to drive Brooke's car. . . more like he absconded with her toy and didn't want to give it up. :-) Brooke generously let Kai play.

Ding Ding, and in this corner

So every night, after bath time, Kai gets a towel wrapped around him and then he runs around the house like superman. Last night he donned his fancy new robe from cousins Kerry and Elaine. If only we all had a robe this plush! The attire may have changed, but the habit was still the same!

My buddy Darwin

Kai adores Darwin. When he gets up in the morning, he always offers Darwin a big juicy open mouthed kiss. He follows Darwin around and shows him tons of affection. Sometimes so much affection that Darwin looks at the grown ups like, "Really? Can I get some space?" and we humor him, because he is ever gentle and understanding of the antics of our sweet toddler.

Here is a video of the two boys playing.

New Photos of the Boy!

He's growing up so quickly! The baby turns into a boy. So we thought that we'd try and get some photos done of him. Awww, so cute

Here is the link to the rest of the photos
