Happiness is... Curious Georgia (yes, Georgia!)

Sidekick loves monkeys so much.  He has no choice really because my baby shower, his first birthday, and the theme of his bedroom are/were all about Sock Monkeys.  I guess I have ingrained the love subconsciously.  For many, many, many months, he has worshiped Curious Georgia (yes, he says Georgia!).  Over the weekend, we went to an Open House at a nearby daycare just because Curious George was there.  He waited patiently in line with the birthday card he made for Georgia as an activity, and when he saw Georgia, the squeal out of his little body could have shattered the windows (picture on the left below)!  I have never seen him so excited about anything before. Once he sat on Georgia's lap, he was speechless (picture on the right)... almost like he was in awe to be so close to Georgia.  Finally, when I took him from George's lap, Sidekick said, "Bye bye Georgia.  Love you."  Let me tell you, at that point, Sidekick was a hit in the entire room and all I heard was "Awwww" all around us. He is such a sweet boy. 

What's kind of strange is that when we went to the zoo (which I HATE but made the exception for Sidekick), he was terrified of the Gorillas and Chimps that were so close to the window, but sitting on a big "puppet" didn't bother him at all.  To be two again and have all of the simple things in life make you happy.


  1. Aww, so sweet! Love the pictures!
