Cutter went for his first swing at the park today. Steve got home a little early and so we went over to the park to take advantage of the beautiful weather. I won't lie; I am baffled at his enthusiam over the park swing when as an infant, banshee screaming would ensue at the mere vision of a baby swing. This child is a personality all unto himself.
He soaked in the sunshine, smiled, shared some of his latest thoughts (mostly of the "ra-ra-ra" variety), and tossed his super model hair in the wind for the ladies nearby. Never one to shy away from a potential "friend" he charms everyone and anyone with his debonair toothy grin and luscious locks aplenty. The ladies seem to be his specialty.
All irony aside, I am consumed with great anticipation for another park play date as it seems we have now checked yet another milestone off of our life list. First ride in a park swing, vanquished. I believe next on the list is securing a beautiful girlfriend whom Mom will adore and Dad will brandish every weapon against - or maybe I'm skipping ahead.
We had a spontaneous and wonderful afternoon!
Swinging and actually loving it
Daddy explaining how it all works
Smiles and smiles and smiles
