Longing to be outside...

Funny story. We went to dinner the other night with Jake's family. It was almost Walker's bedtime and he was getting fussy. After switching him back and forth from me to Jake and walking around the restaurant with him he was still not a happy boy. Jake decided to take him to the window to look outside. Next thing I knew Jake was back at the dinner table and he didn't have Walker with him. Where was Walker might you ask? Well, Jake sat him down in a booster chair in front of the "emergency exit" door - so he could look outside. Happy camper he was there! He stayed there for a good 15 minutes while we finished dinner. He wouldn't look at us unless we called his name. Don't worry, he was right behind us and we kept watching him - we didn't just leave him by himself. How funny though - "i'll be fine over here just watching what's going on outside." He really is obsessed with the outdoors. If he is crying the minute we walk on the front porch, rain or shine, he is happy. What a cute little boy we have!

I'm predicting that Walker will be the little boy who pulls fire alarms and open's the emergency exits when nobody is looking... that's what little boys are made of...

That is seriously awesome. He'll be a perfect fishing partner for Jake if he's already lovin' the outdoors. He really is too cute!
