You may remember I posted about my cousin getting the call up a couple weeks ago. Well yesterday, Munchie got the call up.
Our Little Slugger turned TWO Monday and withing seconds of waking up, I was hit with how much he is a full fledged KID. Bye bye baby league. Hello BIG boy league. Even more than just a week ago. He came to my bedside, talking up a storm. All full sentences, the conversation initiated by him. He said to me, "Hi Mom! You come living room, Mom? Snuggle me, Mom. Come Mom! Wonder Pets save 'Ceritops with the Slip Mud! I watch that, Mom...okay? My Birthday, Mom...okay?! Yeah. I want donuts."
In case you need a translation - "Get the heck out of bed and turn on the Wonder Pets! And even tho I've watched the Triceritops episode 9000 times, it's my birthday....just try and tell me No. PS - donuts ASAP."
And when you are this stinkin' cute...you pretty much get what you want.
(Especially on your birthday! Especially from your Momma!)
So Wonder Pets save the Triceritops with the Slippery Mud it was. (I can act it out if you're interested) I didn't have any donuts handy however, so I made some Monkey Bread instead. It was yummy! The girls loved it. But Munchie wasn't convinced. He got a dozen donut holes all to his lover self after we dropped the girls off at school. (Me. Double wrapped. Around his finger.)
At the end of the day, we had family over for a Baseball Birthday Bash. Munchie is quite fond of TBall - bats, bases, balls, Home Runs! He will play non-stop in the backyard until the other team (us) forfeits. So the party was a hit. And he was in HEAVEN when I told him "Go ahead, whatever you want. Eat it. Coke? sure. Licorice? sure. Your weight in onion dip? sure. It's you're birthday." As he walked around the backyard with his own can of Coke, he kept looking at me like, "You said Yes, right?!"
We gorged ourselves on stadium food and had a great time playing with the new tee, bases, balls and bat that were a gift from Grammie and Papa.
I think this kid loves his Papa!!
After dinner we opened presents and had cake. Uncle Charlie gave Wyatt his first set of baseball cards. Every Rookie player's card from 2007, the year Wyatt was born. Uncle Andy and Aunt Adrie gave him some very cool boy tshirts from cc roo. Aunt Kate and Uncle Paul called from Chicago to tell him about his present. They adopted him a jaguar at the Lincoln Park Zoo! He gets a plush one to keep at home and can visit the big cat in real life when we go to Chicago. After presents, it was onto the cake.
Major League Burns Party of 5
I want season tickets for life!
(Wyatt, I'm so glad we drafted you two years ago. Our team wouldn't be complete without you.)
