On our way home from our vacation, we took a pit stop somewhere near Memphis, TN. (All the towns sort of ran together toward the end of our journey.) I let Matthew sit in the driver’s seat to get a little exercise since there wasn’t a good place to let him crawl around. It was hot so I had the van running to have the AC going. He had a big time grabbing the steering wheel, turning the left signal light on and turning on the windshield wipers. I thought these photos were just so cute! But, I am a bit prejudiced! πŸ˜‰

I had planned to post these last week, but Matthew’s emergency surgery preempted my plans. I’m so thankful that my little happy guy is okay and still smiling.

“Ready? Here we go!! “
Β “Oh dear, construction up ahead. Too bad I can’t see up ahead! These gauges are nice to look at, though.”
“Is it clear on the right? We’re having a little rain. Better turn on the wipers.”
“Ah, YES! This is MUCH better!”

You know, he’s not a bad chauffeur, for a 10 month old! πŸ˜‰

With love,
