Our little Mr. Downtown is enamored with his daddy. Just the way he says "Da-deeeeeeeeee" is adorable, but there's so much more he does that's cute too. He pants at the door leading to the garage when he hears Josh get home from work. He carries around one of Josh's hats (see pictures) all day and nearly everyday because when Josh leaves for work and is home he is usually wearing a hat. He begs Josh to carry him every minute he is home and pats him happily on the shoulder as if to tell him "good job 'upping' me, dad." Really, I've never seen a 17 month old pat someone so consistently. It is his own daddy language. Josh brags to the moon and back about the patting. He has reason to. It must make him feel awesome. And, come on, they look so much alike it's insane!
Josh got to mowing the lawn on Friday trying to finish the acres before the rain rolled in.
Urban usually rides his toy tractor but that day he wanted to ride with his daddy on the real "crack-tor." I grabbed the ear mufflers and I was pretty much good for nothing after that. He blew me a few kisses from daddy's lap and was done with me. He road with Josh for 1 hour (absolutely serious about that. I timed him.) before I went out and brought him in for lunch. Josh said he nodded off a few times because he was so relaxed.
It's looking like Josh pretty much has a mini-me. All he needs is a camouflaged hat!
