We ate a quick meal and then went to the movies for the first time together. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with him since he had never gone but he was incredibly well behaved. We saw Alvin & the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked and O seemed to really like it.
He laughed at the movie a lot, asked occasional questions, and sat in his chair like a big boy through the whole movie! We even made sure to get some popcorn (what's your first movie experience without movie theater popcorn!??). The biggest issue we had was that his butt was too little to hold his seat down so occasionally he'd scoot too far back and start to squish himself in the seat.
He didn't want a booster seat though so he'd just say "Ahh I hurt myself again" and re-adjust himself to fix the chair. We came back to the house and snuggled up on the couch for a little while and then took O to bed. It's nights like this that I realize just how lucky I am to have such an incredible little boy.

Road tripping with a 2 year old is always an interesting trip. It was pretty uneventful other than potty breaks. With O doing so well potty training I will gladly stop when he has to go if he is telling me! By the time we made it to my parents house O was very excited to see them and be out of the car. He had a ton of fun playing with his grandparents, sword fighting with grandma and sitting with grandpa talking away. He wasn't ready to go to bed, but all in all it was a great night.

On a side note, today Orion and I were reading a Justice League book. He was naming the members off as we saw them. He knew Spiderman, Batman, and Flash. As if that isn't enough to be proud of, when we got to Wonder Woman I asked him who it was. His response: Mommy! That's a compliment any geeky mom would be proud to get.

It was a good night for the two of them. I'm glad they are so close. It makes me very happy.

In this picture he totally looks like a little evil genius making a plan. It makes me smile.

We all made our way to our seats and left Orion to get ready for the concert. When they finally paraded in Orion was hand in hand with his best friend Mason. The two of them waved and yelled at Mason's parents until they got to the stage. Then Orion spotted us and was all smiles and waves. They handed him a jingle bell and he shook it like crazy. He smiled and shook it so hard that the bells literally flew off. He picked up the pieces and left his place to hand it to his teacher for her to fix.
They got him a new bell and he was back in place, shaking, smiling, and singing. He did such a good job and was such a ham. He had me giggling through his entire performance.
Afterwards he came and sat with us for a while....well until he decided he needed to be the photographer for a while. He took pictures of the other kids performing and of his teacher Ellie.
After the concert we hit the refreshments and Orion found Mason for a little bit before heading home and heading to bed.
All in all I would say it was a great night with family and a ton of laughter. The concert was silly and fun in the way only little kids can be.

Another bit of randomness for you. While I was in the kitchen making supper, I had my laptop sitting on the couch. I came in to the living room to find O had picked it up and was busting out some WoW. I'm so proud of my geeky baby. I am definitely looking forward to introducing him to those things as he gets older. He's a great kid and I have high hopes for his geeky future.
