Little People

On Wednesday Keegan and I had a date night. I picked him up from school and went for a haircut. Even though we had to wait over a half hour he did great patiently playing with the pretend kitchen and grill. After that we had dinner at Pan*ra. He loves it there and so do I so it works out. I have to tell you we had a great dinner. I didn't have to remind of his manners and we chatted away. Every age I think I love the most because it is so cool to watch them become people. At one point he did tell me that one of the patrons looked like Santa. He didn't except for having a beard. But the guy was amused by it and asked Keegan what he wanted for Christmas.
His teachers describe him as always on the move. Very active and energetic but not agressive or rough and he is sweet and bubbly. He will stop briefly to do art projects or build with blocks but is not a sit still play a game kind of kid. Basically he is his father. And I know he has Tom's love of speed and heights. The only thing that he will sit still and do for a long period of time? Read. Just like his mommy. Oh and he is stubborn. And he loves to giggle, make funny faces and weird noises crack him up. He got that from both sides.
