Lloyd ball game just happened to coincide with the celebration of our nephew Matthew’s birth! The little guy’s two now, and I don’t know how that is possible, since he was a little peanut when he was born. *sigh* Time is just going faster and faster.
Anyway, we had a great time. Matthew is fun and funny, with a quick smile and sparkly eyes. Unfortunately none of my pictures will show that because I think I had it on ‘macro’ for most of my photos. If you want some good pictures of his smile, go here. (Mark also has a much, much better camera.)
We had a ton of fun playing with him and watching him make trains or helping him stabilize wobbly towers.
I stink at buying gifts, so I asked for birthday present ideas ahead of time. Mark and Rachel said that the boy loves trucks, and we found this. It was the trifecta of toys – Wheels, a Handle, and It Opens. Who doesn’t love a truck/box/suitcase that you can fill with baby trucks? This picture may not show his love, but that’s because he’s murmuring ‘babies’ to it.
Plus, he will make you breakfast.
Seriously. What’s not to love?
