So Lyla may not have been able to use her touchdown celebration as many times as we hoped, but it was still a pretty great little weekend. Saturday was mostly spent working on the new TV in the man cave. For those of you that don't know, this is a very serious, very important project.
We also had a Backyardigans birthday party to attend that afternoon, which Lyla had been looking forward to for weeks. Every time she saw the invitation she'd say "WHOA!" and then point at each character and say "dat? dat?" I've never seen the show and have absolutely no clue what the characters are so I'd make it up as I went. After several "party! go!" demands from Lyla we managed to pull Ryan away from his TVs and headed to the party, Lyla clutching that little invite the entire way.
The party was cute, and it's always a kick to get a bunch of toddlers together. Lyla still pretty much stays to herself, running around exploring every inch of every room as fast as she can. She eventually won the "Most Curious" award, which I think couldn't have been more perfect for the girl.
Sunday was obviously...well, a disappointment to say the least. But, we had a great get together at our place and I think it'll go down as the best Super Bowl ever in Lyla's book. At least until next year. I'm pretty sure she thought the party was for her, the way she'd run up to just about anyone at the party, grab their hands and drag them off to go play. She even got an entire dance party started in the man cave during half time, running to each person, literally pulling them off their chair and waiting until they started dancing to run off to the next person. My personal favorite was when we moved back upstairs and she pulled me in the middle of the room and made me dance in front of everyone for the remainder of the half time show. It was just like college, except stone cold sober with a huge baby belly.
Hope you had a good weekend too!
