Egan's uncle Sean (Blake's brother) got married last weekend. (Congrats guys!) Egan took it upon himself to steal the show for himself. Where did he learn these moves? I don't know. Here in a few years he probably won't think it is so funny… or maybe he will. Enjoy.
The outfit? Cuuuuute. Our lifestyle doesn't so much have a need for fancy clothes… at least for Egan. So, when we were at a children's store recently and Egan asked for a tie, both Blake and I were SHOCKED, but told him we could look for one for him to wear at Christmas. He was ok with that, but when I saw this outfit a few weeks later, I knew it was a must… It was a tie, just like he wanted (and a real one at that!), a vest (that was a hoodie!), a cute button-down shirt (with buttons to help roll them up!) and a pair of jeans. It fits his style perfectly! He felt like HOT STUFF with his tie "like daddy". Oh, and his hair. He got it cut the morning of the wedding and now likes it "all spiky".
My little date:

He even shared his newly earned car with her. She was pretty pleased to be holding her brother's toy.
He also showed her what to do with it.
He also took a stab at teaching her how to be silly in pictures. Toot!
(Yes, we got a new sofa! I'll share more about it soon!)

He's got quite a few friends in his class, and was already settled into a game of cars and airplanes with them before I even left his classroom. He had a great first day! I love having my boy at home, but also know it is so good for him to learn to take direction from teachers, and not just Blake and me. It also gives me some special one on one time with Sloane. It's a win win! Anyway, he had nothing but great things to say about his school, teachers and friends, and even came home wearing the same clothes he went to school in! Huge success if you know what I mean! ;)

Sloane finally got her first taste of food. I thought she might like the taste of rice cereal to start since it tastes like her milk, but as you will see I was WRONG. (but what's new?)
We were all smiles before the first taste.
Giggling at her brother.
Noooooot so sure about this first bite.
Again, still thinking about it.
And, verdict is in. She's NOT a fan. In fact, she refused to let me get close to her with the stuff after this.
Thinking back, Egan was the same way. Never really a fan of the "cereal". He much preferred all the other foods I offered. On to something else, and we will add the cereal to something with a bit more flavor!
Last week Blake had a milestone birthday. He turned 30! We planned a fun family day to celebrate him with his choice of homemade dinner, stuffed pork loin. yum! Egan and I also asked him what kind of cake he'd like, which he decided on a carrot cake. Egan and I set out to the grocery store to get everything needed, and somewhere along the way, Egan decided it MUST be a "kitty cat cake". Fortunately, Blake was a good sport and allowed Egan to dictate the cake.
In the end, he had to compromise a bit because I didn't have the yellow color I thought I did to tint the icing. Oh, and I put eyes on it. Our finished masterpiece.
The ceremonial blowing of the candles. I didn't have 30 candles, so we settled on three curvy ones… on Egan's insistence. You guys, Egan had an idea of what he wanted for daddy and wouldn't settle for anything different. He was into this!
Success… He was able to blow out all the candles at once. Egan's response? "Woah, that's a lot of smoke!" Imagine if we actually did 30 candles!
We had a fun birthday week and followed up this celebration with a little mini vacation. More on that to come!
