Leyton went to a birthday party on Sunday that was a Minnie Mouse theme! His good friend Presley was turning 3 and her Mom had all sorts of cute stuff for the kiddos. When Leyton got there he was given a pair of Mickey ears which he wanted NOTHING to do with. To be honest though, at the beginning he wanted nothing to do with the party. He loves going to things like that but once he gets there he gets very quiet. Sometimes this passes quickly and other times he will spend the whole time just observing. I used to struggle with this because I was such an outgoing kid, but now I just roll with it and let him figure out what he wants to do.
About an hour in he warmed up and started playing with the other kids. It was about this time that he spotted the table of ears again and decided he wanted a pair, only he wanted to wear the Minnie ears. As soon as he put those things on my heart melted. He was just so dang adorable, especially when he jumped on the pink scooter that Presley got for her birthday.
Later I even got him to be comfortable in the pool! He had all his clothes on and spent his time lounging in a raft, but I was so happy that he even went in the water and was having fun! Plus, this picture totally melted my heart again.
