Squishy Face

Dear Sebastian…

Your Grandmas came over to your house the other night to visit with you for a little while.  Your Daddy and Grandma Tam went out to a movie and your Mommy and Grandma stayed home with you.  Before your Daddy and I went to the movie we were spending a little time with you.  We played with your new plane and I made some pretty funny noises while we were playing, pretending to be the plane sounds as it flew around your head.  You really liked that a lot.  Then we got out your play dough and you started making the squishy face.  No one knows when or where you might have seen it in order to make it.  We think you just made it up on your own, which is really smart.

Your Grandmas think you have the best personality.  You are so much fun to be around.  Thanks for letting us spend some time with you the other night.  We love you so much and always like to see you when we can.

In fact, we are going to come over to your house tonight so your parents can go out on a date.  Your Grandma Karen has a cold, but we are going to come over anyway because we really love you and are excited about spending time with you.

Fun Through Photos

Dear Sebastian…

We have spent a lot of fun time with you in the last few weeks.  Hanging out with you while your parents went on dates, watching you swim, going to your gym class graduation, visiting with you at Grandmas house, and having breakfast and dinner with you a few times.  It’s been so much fun.  Your Grandmas thought we would put a bunch of fun photos here so you could see some of the things we have been doing.

Your Grandmas love spending time with you so much.  You are one handsome, kind, important, smart little guy.

No Disappearing Act

Dear Sebastian…

Your Grandmas have been so busy in the last couple of weeks, a lot of time with you, that we haven’t had time to write anything.  We are so slow at this stuff sometimes.  We are going to have to write another catch-up post about all the fun stuff we’ve done… like hanging out with you while your parents went out to dinner, and going to breakfast with you after we watched you swim, and going to your Little Gym talent showcase (you are very talented), and having you and your parents come over to our house for dinner, and a lot of little visits here and there to play and hang out.

Your Grandmas love you very much little man.

Love,    Grandmas

Rubber Ducky You’re The One…

…You make bath time lots of fun, rubber ducky I’m awfully fond of you….  Every day when I make my way to the tubby, I find a little fellow all cute and yellow and chubby… rub a dub a dubby….

Dear Sebastian….

We went over to your house last night to have taco night with you and your parents.  We ate tacos and then you wore your Grandmas shoes for awhile.  You thought that was a lot of fun.

The tacos were good, but the best part of the night was when your Mommy and Daddy went out for a little while and your Grandmas got to give you your bath.  You took your bath in the big tub with the jets.  During your bath, after your Grandma washed you all up, your Grandmas starting playing with your duckies in the water and singing the rubber ducky song.  We splashed the duckies in the water while we were singing and you laughed and laughed.  I don’t think you noticed that your Grandmas didn’t really know all the words so we kept making up new ones.  We laughed when we did it and that made you laugh more.

You liked it so much that when we were done and would put the ducks back into the tub to float around you would pick up the ducks and hand them back to us so we would sing again.  We must have sung that song seven or eight times.  You really liked it and your Grandmas love you so much we just kept singing it to you.

We had such a fun time with you last night little man.  We love you so much.

Farm Animals Drink From The Well

Dear Sebastian…

We had such a fun time with you this last weekend.  Your Mommy and Daddy went to Chicago for the weekend so we got to stay with you while they were gone.  We had so much fun!

We came over in the morning on Saturday and you were already up.  Your parents left and we played for a while.  You and your Grandma took out your new tractor, farmer, and animal set and ran it all over.  Your Grandma Tam got a basket that we used for the barn and you started putting your animals in the barn and then taking them out and putting them back in the tractor.  You were very cute.  Then your Grandma showed you how the farmer could the animals to the grass and watering hole.  So then you took out your animals so they could eat and drink.  You would take them out and put them on the grass and then take them over to the watering hole, which was really the dogs water bowl, but it worked good as a watering hole.  You really liked this and you did it for a long time.  So much fun!

After that you were tired so you went down for a nap.  Your Grandma asked you if you wanted a nap and you said yes, so got one.  After you had a nice sleep you had some lunch.  You like lunch.  And after lunch you got all dressed up in your jacket and hat and we took you from your house to your Grandmas house for awhile.

You like it at your Grandmas house because Thunder, your spring horse, is here and so are your friends (the animal flash lights you love so much).  Plus we have all your little animals here and every time you come over you get a new one.  You think that’s pretty neat.  We played for a couple of hours and then we went back to your house, with Weston and Riley this time.

We played some more and then you had dinner, a bath, and story, and then you went to bed.  The next day you had breakfast, played, had a nap, lunch, and then your Mommy and Daddy came home.

It was a fun adventure hanging out with you.  It always is.  Your Grandmas are so lucky to get to spend so much time with you.

We love you Sebastian…

A Day With Your Grandmas

Dear Sebastian…

We got to spend the whole day with you today.  Aren’t we lucky!  Your Mommy and Daddy went to St. Louis to see the places they used to hang out when they were first dating and to do a little shopping.  So, while they were off doing that we came over to your house and spent the day with you.  We had so much fun.


You are a such a fun guy to be around.  We played and played, went for a walk, played some more, watched videos, and you hid under your magic cloak.

Your Grandmas love spending time with you.  In fact, I don’t think there’s anyone we would rather be with than you.  You are just that special of a guy.

We love you…

Slumber Party

Dear Sebastian…

We had so much fun with you this weekend.  We came over to your house and hung out with you last night, made dinner, and were there when you took your bath and went to bed.  We had so much fun with you that we decided to stay over so we could be there in the morning to see you when you got up.  Your Daddy was away for the weekend so it was just you, your Mommy, and us.  It was pretty funny, grandmas and Weston and Riley all staying just so we could see you.  You are a pretty special guy, that’s for sure.

Today we went to watch you swim, it was your last class until next year.  You got to go down the big slide today.  You didn’t seem too thrilled about it, especially the first time, but you went down twice because you are so brave.  Wow.

After swimming we went out to breakfast with your friend Tavish and his parents.  We went to the Courier Cafe and you had scrambled eggs.  Grandmas think you had more fun banging the plastic jam holder on the table than eating your eggs, but you had fun. You also enjoyed your Grandma Karen’s english muffin with jam.

When we were done having breakfast we went back to your house where we played and watched videos after you got up from your nap.  You are such a good sleeper.  And you were in such a great mood when you got up.  You are in a good mood most of the time. Must be because you are such a laid back kind of guy.  You’re a busy guy, but pretty mellow most of the time.  So curious and interested in everything.  That must be because you’re so smart.  You rock.

Grandmas had so much fun with you this weekend.  Thank you for letting us hang out with you.

We love you…  Your Grandmas

A Morning Together

Dear Sebastian…

We have had so much fun with you lately.  We came over to pick you up so your Mommy and Daddy could sleep in and have a quiet morning to hang out with each other.  Your Mommy and Daddy love you very much, but they were very tired, so to let them get a little extra sleep we came over to your house before you woke up, got you up when you woke up, gave you breakfast and helped you change into your day clothes and then whisked you off to have big adventures with your grandmas.

We had some fun times.  We went to the store and did some shopping.  I think your favorite part of being at the store was when you got to ride the pony.  You loved it.  Good thing the pony was free or your Grandmas would’ve gone broke feeding quarters into the horsey so it would go.  You rode it that many times.  You are such a great buckaroo.

After the store you came over to our house for awhile.  We had so much fun hanging out, having lunch, playing with your friends, your animals, and Jack.  You are such a good walker now that you walked all over our house.  For awhile you enjoyed wearing a Santa hat while you walked around.  You are an amazing little man Sebastian.  Your Grandmas are so lucky to get to be your Grandmas.

We love you…

Monkey and The Panda Bear

Dear Sebastian…

You were here again today.  It’s so neat that we live so close that you can come over and visit whenever you feel like seeing us.  Your Mommy was nice to bring you over.

We went for a walk after you got here today.  It was sort of chilly outside so your Grandmas, your Mommy, and you all got bundled up and we walked around your Grandmas neighborhood with our doggies, Weston and Riley.  It was a nice walk.  It’s really pretty right now because all the leaves are changing colors.

When we got back to the house your Mommy had to run an errand so we got to hang out with you for a little bit.  Grandma Tam tried to make you some eggs, but you weren’t very keen on eating them.  Then your Grandmas tried to feed you applesauce followed by yogurt.  You didn’t want those either.  Your Grandmas struck out on everything we tried, but you didn’t seem to care.  You were too busy playing with your monkey and your panda bear.  You were pretty cute playing with them.  Your Grandmas like to give you a new little animal every time you come over.  Last time we gave you the first one, the monkey.  You found it in a cupboard.  It was a big surprise.  Today when you came over monkey was in the cupboard again, and so was your new friend the panda bear.  You were pretty excited and played with them the rest of the time you were here.  We had a lot of fun.

Tonight your Grandmas get to see you again when we come over for dinner and to watch the World Series.  This year the St. Louis Cardinals are playing the Texas Rangers. Your Mommy and Daddy are big St. Louis Cardinals fans because your Mommy lived in St. Louis for a long time.  That’s where she lived when she met your daddy.  Pretty cool. So tonight we are coming over to visit you, have dinner with you, and then watch the game with your Mommy and Daddy.  Go Cardinals!

Your Grandmas Love you!
