Last weekend (as in the weekend before this past weekend), we headed to Greensboro to see my grandmother (Mamama) and her husband, Crawford. My mom and Rebecca came along as well. We had a great time! Mamama and Crawford had not seen T since he was 5 months old. He's gotten much bigger since then!
Here he is with KK.

Sunday morning we got up and took some photos around her house. It is so beautiful, in the country and around her house. She has the prettiest flowers and little places for photo shots. Here he is waving at Crawford as he was bringing the Gator around to see T. I often say "HI" to Troy and hold my hand up. I think he's figured out that's the way to tell someone hello.
I love this picture of Troy. He is a very happy baby and smiles like this all the time!
The photo below cracks me up. He got to sit in the Gator with Crawford and was so excited....
Here's a closeup...tongue hanging out with excitement. He was bouncing up and down!
Troy has a favorite push toy, a little grocery cart. He will push and push and push as long as he can...or until he runs into something. He gets quite frustrated when his cart gets "stuck". We're working on his patience. We try to distract him when things don't go his way. He did fall and scrape his knee, had blood running down his leg but got back up and was fine (no crying) until his cart got stuck and he couldn't push it anymore - then he cried!
On Saturday we went to our cousin Reagan's birthday party. Troy got on this riding John Deere tractor and was SO happy....since he couldn't reach the pedal, Jennifer pushed it for him. He was fine until Jennifer stopped pushing on the pedal. He would start crying!
Here's the birthday boy. He turned three. Reagan acts much older than three! His vocabulary is unbelievable.

Troy enjoyed walking around holding my hand. He has taken a few steps here and there but is not confident enough to walk on his own. He barely holds onto one hand and walks around. I think he'll be walking by next month.
Here Troy is with Cookie. Cookie has worked for my grandparents for more than 35 years. Maybe longer? He is so sweet!

Oh, and yes, we did have a good 4th of July. I did't post anything because I didn't take ANY photos! Troy wore a smocked American flag outfit which was, well....how do I say this...poofy? Does that make sense? After B begrudgingly agreed to allow me to put the outfit on him (while I promised not to take any photos), a few of our friends...and their kids...though he was wearing a dress. We were only at our friends' house hanging out so we weren't out "in public"! LOL!

He is such a cutie! And congrats on the walking! Get ready to fly around all the time trying to keep up! You just thought he was quick before... :)
