Like Father Like Son

Tony is in a "just like daddy" phase.

Many mornings, he puts on one of Jay's shirts and a pair of his shoes, get his very own Lightning McQueen laptop, pulls up his chair, gets his "coffee" just like dad's (i.e. milk), and starts to work alongside him. He can stay there quietly working next to dad for surprisingly long periods of time, and his attention to detail in imitating his father is quite amazing.

I love seeing how content Tony is when he is with his dad, and how patiently Jay supports his little shadow. I know this phase will end all too soon, so I am trying to absorb every moment.

Oh, and, yes, Jay does work in our master closet, although we have an amply large house for him to have his own office. Why? You guessed it--it's the only place quiet enough for him to take work calls without resonant kid noise! (Good thing he doesn't mind a bit...what a good sport I married.)

How nice it is to see this photo when I am traveling.

I miss you so much. Can't wait to come home.

It's cute when they are small but then they want to start burping and farting like Dad and suddenly it's not so cute! We now have "dedicated" stuff that happens only with Dad! Would NOT want to be a fly on the wall in this house when we are in Mexico!!!!
