Last night we had the Harris clan over to enjoy some post Christmas, but still on vacation playtime. Their oldest is 2 1/2 and their little girl is a week younger than Eli.
Walker had a blast, no I mean an absolute super fun amazing time. This is the first time I have really seen him play full out with another kid. Usually Walker prefers to play with a toy rather than another child. Not last night, he and Andrew wore each other out. They played with cars, balls and a myriad of toys, ran circles around the house, and had several deep conversations none of which the adults could understand. Walker ate an entire slice of pizza and then sat and watched cars with his new bud. It was so great to see him have such a good time.
It was one of those evenings where you say, this is what it is supposed to be like. Sometimes when we try to get together with other families, it is just trying to manage the children, choke down some food and end the evening. Not last night, we all genuinely had a good time. I cannot wait to get everyone together again soon.
Oh, almost forgot...Walker kissed his first girl last night. Right square on the lips. Meredith was helping Anna Catherine stand up and he gave her a big wet kiss, and seemed to like it. Walker is not an affectionate child, he doesn't even kiss us on a regular basis, but something about Anna Catherine was attractive. All the adults assumed we would be match making with her and Eli, but it appears big brother might swoop in first.
