A long time ago a family friend gave these bull horns to my brother Brian.  He put them up over his door, and there they stayed for a few years until he left for college and my other brother, Evan, claimed them.  They moved from Dallas to Bloomington with my parents a few years ago, but now my parents are downsizing their house and didn’t have room for the horns!  Behind my back and without my knowledge Chris claimed the horns for Truett’s room, and somehow he also canceled my veto vote!  So now, Truett has the horns hanging over his closet door.  He seemed pretty excited about them this afternoon when Chris put them up!

Today Truett was very cute, sharing all his cars with Jack by piling them in Jack’s lap as he sat in his bouncy seat.  In between sharing, Truett would stop to give Jack kisses. It was all very sweet, and I hope it is a sign of their future relationship.  I know there will be times when they are fighting and not getting along, but I really want them to have a close relationship with each other and be true friends!  So far Truett seems to enjoy Jack, and Jack is starting to notice Truett and smile at him as he watches him play.

The difference of two years!

Two pictures of Truett almost exactly 2 years apart!  We have made a sort of tradition of stopping at Truett’s Grill on our way from Atlanta to Leesburg.  So far this is more for us than Truett, he doesn’t quite realize that the restaurant has the same name as he does! The first visit was memorable in that Truett had diaper and spit up issues that necessitated a change of clothes for all three of us.  The second visit he was more interested in the train running around the ceiling then in eating.  I wonder how he will feel about sitting in Grandma’s lap and looking at the menu together when he is 16?
