Tonight we celebrated Carter's second ever graduation. His first? Graduating from the little jaundice tanning beds when he was four days old. (Anyone who's ever agonized over her newborn fighting jaundice will agree, that totally counts as a major feat.)
I'm being weird. Just nod your head and smile.
We signed him up for the summer session in two weeks with his little friend (well, I mean, they hugged once) from class. They're moving up from Birds to Beasts together. I can't wait to see the new activities we're going to learn with the bigger toddlers.
When it was time to go, he stood beside the door and Bye-byed everyone as they went to their cars. We went to go pick up milk and let him loose in the store. It took us forever to get out of there because he started up with the Bye-byes to every human within a one-mile radius again. How nice to meet you, repetitive stage. Repetitive stage. I think he's amazed that just by smiling and using a specific phrase, he can trigger laughter and waving from any given person. That's enough to make any toddler feel like a powerful magician.
Besides a tantrum, of course.
