Here he is with his birthday cake and the blue ice cream that he picked out himself. Yes it tasted just about as good as it looked. Blech. Travis LOVES dinosaurs and trains. I've been buying him those Imaginext dinosaurs for several years now. In fact, I think the novelty has seriously worn off of these as presents for that kid. Next year, I've gotta come up with a new gig. Especially when he opened it and said something along the lines of "Awww this is the one I didn't want. " Well, I crashed and burned on that one. At least somebody liked it. Can you say tomboy?
Travis is the second born of my sister's four. He's our sensitive, overly dramatic child. You can't joke with him AT ALL. And forget sarcasm cuz it's lost on him. He takes everything you say literally and gets his feelings hurt easily. But he's very loveable and sweet. He loves to cuddle. When he was younger, he'd accompany the cuddling by professing "I yike you." He stills does it but has now learned to pronounce his L's. He's going to be the athlete while his older brother, Tanner, is more of the bookworm. Hey this kid slid into the base last year in T-ball like a pro. He bent his leg, went down for the slide and bounced right back up on his feet on the base.... at 6! He and Tanner were born in Texas. When Travis was 2 weeks old my sister and her husband loaded up a U-Haul and drove here because my sister was homesick. I'm so glad they moved back. Thanks to her husband, Bobby, for agreeing to that one cuz I couldn't imagine my life without the T's. Here's a rare picture of all of them at once without any fighting, crying or fussing. Check out their adventures over at my sister's blog Tales of the T's.
Happy Birthday Travis (a little late)!! I love you.
Disclaimer: I didn't forget his birthday. Just forgot to post about it ON his birthday.
