Eagles, Baby Cai

The Eagles played today. It was not a happy ending, but the good news is that we got to enjoy the afternoon and evening with our fellow Eagles fans, the Easleys/Stokes. And, they brought dinner, so I didn't even have to cook. And one of the things they brought was macaroni and cheese. And it was delicious. So, Mommy is very happy and content at the moment, even though Daddy is still a little grouchy about the Eagles loss.

I really should have video-taped Allen watching the game. It was quite adorable. He yelled, "Ome on!" and "E-E-Eagles!" and "Woohoo!" at various points throughout. He also jumped and spun around for us. He was quite charming.

So you have seen me mention baby Cai a number of times on my blog. Well, his mommy is Tasha Stokes, so she was over today (with Micai, of course). Here are my favorite pictures of the afternoon (it was hard too hard to choose just a few, so I'm posting most of them).

Micai & Aunt Tisha

This is my favorite Micai face

Look at those yummy cheeks!

Almost a smile ...

Micai & Aunt Leggy

Allen and his "Buddy" Micai (he kept saying, "Hey Buddy!" to Micai)

Look, Mommy, I'm holding Baby Cai!

(there were more pictures of Micai sliding down off Allen's lap, but I decided not to post those)

Well, hello, handsome!

Those are the highlights. There were a few more, like one of Allen kind of tackling Micai (I think he was really trying to hug him, but it looks like he's pinning him down), and a bunch that were out of focus or blurry because it's really hard to get an almost-three-month-old to stay completely still, let alone an almost-three-month-old and a two-year-old. But I think the above pictures were the highlights.
Some of us went for a walk this evening, too, and it was lovely. Allen pushed his car for about half of the walk, and listened to Mommy pretty well for most of it. But he's definitely not ready to get his license yet. He was swerving all over the sidewalk. He ran into Nyomi (sis-Ny) once, and onto the grass several times. I think he might have hit a tree once too. Eventually he disobeyed Mommy one too many times and had to get back in the car to be pushed home. Aunt Missy could hear him screaming at the house (the windows were open, but still). He stopped screaming once he saw Nana and the puppies (in the puppy stroller). And then quickly forgot that he was mad at all.
Well, because I'm a glutton for punishment, I think I'm going to try to trim Mia's nails now. Goodnight all. XOXO!

I was very nice to have a face 9and a cute one at that) to go with the Baby Cai stories. And the picture of Allen holding him just makes it too clear to Aunt Kissy that her boy is not so much a baby anymore. Thanks for that reality check! :(
