Lawn Mower Men

Like father, like son.

My favorite part about them mowing the lawn together is if Chris has to stop the mower for some reason, Tommy asks him, "Does your mower need more bubbles?"

Boy or Girl?

We found out this past week we will be having another boy. We are ecstatic that Tommy will have a brother to grow up with. The baby is doing well and is right on schedule!

Tommy and the Princesses!

This will the last Disney post! We had a blast on vacation and created great family memories. One of the highlights for Tommy was meeting the princesses. He wasn't too familiar with any of them, but the first night we were there, we caught the SpectroMagic parade. Cinderella is in this parade, Tommy immediately fell in love and requested to meet her. We found out that there is a whole building dedicated to meeting the princesses and fairies. As you can see from previous posts, Tommy was not shy at all with the characters, however, when it came to the pretty princesses, he became Prince Bashful, as Cinderella called him! Chris, however, noticed that Tommy was the only boy waiting in line to meet the princesses and was not happy about it. I had to promise him we would seek out Captain Hook to balance this out! Here are some pictures.

Tommy and his kisses! He wouldn't let me wipe them off. Needless to say, all the princesses want to keep him too!

While in Florida, we took advantage of the swimming pool at our hotel. We went for a couple evening swims with Tommy. He loves the water and has started doing the doggy paddle with the help of floaties. Here's a video of him swimming.

Character Dinner

We took Tommy to a character dinner at Epcot one night. He LOVED it! He always wanted the characters to sit down and eat with him. The highlight of the evening though was dessert. They served Tommy "dirt." This consisted of chocolate pudding with crushed up oreos and gummy worms on top. Now, Tommy loves all these ingredients alone, however, I kept telling him it was dirt and he really thought it was real dirt. He was laughing hysterically and ended up spitting most of the pudding out, quite a mess! Oh well, he had fun and we were amused!

Hotel Toy Story

On vacation, we brought some of Tommy's stuffed animals from home. To our surprise, everyday, the cleaning lady would put Tommy's guys in different situations in our room. For instance, one day we came back to see them all in cuddled on the bed, holding the TV remote and watching the Disney channel! Tommy loved coming back to see where his guys would be, in fact, Chris and I would get excited too to see where they would be placed. Here are some pictures of how we found them.

Goofy reading to all of his guys.

Watching TV

The last day!

Disney World Characters!

We just got back from our first family vacation to Disney World! Tommy had a blast, in fact, we all had a blast. His favorite thing to do was to meet all the characters and get their autographs. I am posting 3 entries dedicated to pictures with the characters. I will then post a new entry from Disney each day. Enjoy the pictures and as the staff at Disney would say, have a magical day!
