It has been a long and trying week since we've been home. Edward has really struggled with his new sister. He is very sweet to her. He holds her, kisses her head, hands and feet. Mom was here for the week and was a HUGE help with Edward. She was sure to give him LOTS of attention and love. He has been defiant and has constant meltdowns. I don't know if it is the two year old in him coming out or if he is just trying to adjust to a new family member.
Saturday was Opelika's 2nd Annual Touch A Truck event. They had 3 dozen vehicles for children to come and touch, sit in and honk horns. Thomas and his dad took Edward. To get into the event you had to bring a new toy to be given to the fire department's Toys for Tots program. Edward was SO excited about spending the morning with Daddy and Pot and the "big trucks".
Edward saw a fire truck, UPS truck, tow truck, wrecker, tractors of all sorts, an ambulance, a helicopter, etc. When he got home I loved hearing him tell me all about it. He just lit up! The event was held along the railroad track in downtown Opelika and as an added bonus, the train just happened to run while they were there!!
I look forward to being able to go with him next year!

The train was SO loud
Edward loves helicopters
