Go Car, Go!

Baylor's friend Ashton celebrated his 1st birthday 2 weeks ago. Baylor loves birthday parties so much, but the downfall to that is he thought it was his party and wanted to open the presents and play with the new toys before the birthday boy did. Needless to say, we spent 95% of the time outside playing in the backyard with the other kids. In the backyard was an inflatable jumper, new swing set, a see-saw and toys galore for the kids to play with. Was my son interested in any of that fun stuff? No, Baylor set his eyes on a faded, older "Cozy Coupe" and that's where he stayed almost the entire time! Scott kept saying he was gonna go buy Baylor one since he liked it so much but I figured he would just wait until his birthday which was only 1 month away at that time. WRONG! Sunday, after the party I went shopping at Mistletoe Market with my friend Christian (Ashton's Mommy) and Baylor stayed home and spent the day with Scott. Apparently while I was gone, they went grocery shopping at Wal-Mart and ended up getting something a little extra for Baylor. This is what I saw when I came in the door:

An excited little boy that wouldn't even let Daddy finish putting it together before he got in it! Scott literally had to put the whole thing together while Baylor sat in it, mesmerised.

He.loves.this.car! When I tell you the boy lives in it, he literally lives in it from the time we get home until I have to drag him out for his dinner and bath. He will even sit in it to watch t.v. in the afternoons. Baylor doesn't say much but is picking up more and more each week thanks to his therapist. But let me tell you, when he runs around the house pushing his Cozy Coupe or is riding in it, he will say, "Go car, go, go car, go"! He especially loves it when his Daddy or I push him in it and he knows exactly what to do, he picks his feet up and props them up on his dashboard and cruises! I am so glad my little guy is enjoying his new ride, thanks to his Daddy.
