Just Like Dad

When Riker and I came downstairs this morning,
he spotted his dad’s tie laying on the couch.
He made a beeline for the couch, grabbed the tie, and begged me to put it on him.


He was so excited to walk around the house wearing his daddy’s tie.
Every now and then, he would just hold it in his hands and check out the pattern.
I think it made him feel like a big boy.
He was just like his daddy.


Riker also carried that book around all morning.
"Don’t Let The Pigeon Stay Up Late”
by Mo Willems
His favorite part is when the pigeon yells
"I’m not tired!”
He thinks its really funny.
I read that one page probably a million times this morning.
But Riker laughed every time…so it was totally worth it.

Aw I love when little boys try to be like their Daddy. Collin does that with Brenden's belts. You can tell he feels so cool strutting around the house with Brenden's belts wrapped around him 3 times and buckled. He even goes into the closet to pull them out.

You should get Riker the book "Just Like Daddy". Our Bishop's wife got it for Collin when Elle was born and he loves that book. I'm sure Riker would too!
