Sunday afternoon with Granny B

After our naps, we lazed around the house some more, mostly reading books and eating and chatting.

Somehow, I managed to wrestle Alex away from Granny B for a couple of minutes, and he made it worth my while by cuddling up with me. And yeah, I know I look hot in my jammies and scraggly hair. That's what happens when I've been dressed up all day and want to be comfy. I expect Stacy and Clinton to show up at my door any day now...

Eventually, as bedtime approached, Alex got a bath and then B helped him brush his teeth and hair.

Then Alex helped B brush her teeth.

Then we decided to have some fun at Alex's expense. B brushed all of his hair forward, which must have been a drastic change in Alex's eyes because he acted as if he didn't recognize himself. It inspired some of the most hilarious faces I've seen him make, all serious and confused, like, what on earth is that thing on my head? I don't think these pictures capture the true hilarity that ensued. But it was darn funny.

After we were done goofing around, B read Alex a few books and then it was time for him to go to bed. We were going to need plenty of rest for the busy day that would lie ahead.

Sunday morning with Granny B

Sunday. We lazed around the house in the morning before heading to Thompson & Knight to check out Timothy's office. Mom, Alex, and I hadn't been there yet, so this was the perfect opportunity for the three of us to get the grand tour.

The firm recently moved into a brand new building, as in, they just built the place and moved in a couple months ago. Thompson & Knight leases four-and-a-half floors in the building - Timothy's office is on the 14th. Other tenants of the building include the corporate headquarters for 7-11, a few swanky restaurants, and some condos on the top few floors available to TK employees at the discount rate of $450/sq. foot.

Turns out, Alex was not very impressed with his daddy's office.

Except for one thing - the decorative baseball that was conveniently located atop an Alex-sized file cabinet.

He blew on it (for good luck, I assume):

Practiced his pitching grips, stances, and signals:

And got in trouble for banging it against the window:

At that point, he really just wanted to leave so he could have some lunch and take a nap.

And that's exactly what we did. We left, had lunch at Jake's Burgers, and went home to nap.
