So we planned many attempts to keep him distracted and awake.
We played outside and went for a walk.
And just about the time I thought he was going to crash...
Cousin City arrived!!! (Side Note: For some reason, Landon calls Mason "City." Strange, but cute!) Landon lights up when he sees Mason.
And around 9:30, he was doing this:
And then the show started! I figured it was going to be a hit or miss. He has never liked loud, sudden noises and since fireworks are loud and sudden, I figured he would be terrified and we would be out of there as soon as possible.
I was wrong.
He barely moved for an entire twenty five minutes. When Tyler asked him what he thought, he responded with a whispered, "Wow."
There are few things better than watching your child enjoy and get excited about something. Whether its fireworks or watching a "Toot Toot" drive down the road, Landon has been teaching me to simply enjoy what is happening right in front of me instead of constantly looking at what is going to happen next.
Landon, I am a firm believer that you teach me more than I teach you. Thank you :)
