an opa sighting





my dad had a meeting in pasadena yesterday, he flew in that morning and out in the evening. so we drove to hang out for about an hour and a half, we'll take anytime we can get. malachi was excited to see opa and it also thrilled him that opa flew on a plane to see him. the last week every plane we see has been opa's plane and we've had to explain that those planes were not actually carrying opa at the moment. malachi is also obsessed with mater and mc queen from the movie, cars. he has never seen the movie, but he has a book about them. so he received a couple little cars as a surprise from opa and they are now with him all day long. this adds to the excitement of malachi now sleeping in a big boy bed with is new pillow shaped like mater the tow truck, its worked great. he loves sleeping with mater and he has transitioned out the crib and now claims the bed as his own. he stays in bed once we put him down and he stays in bed in the morning until ryan or i come to get him. it's gone a lot easier than i imagined, now if everything else about an almost 2 year old energetic litte boy could be as easy. like how to stop him from throwing food to the dog or sitting in abram's baby swing....
