This past weekend my sister Stephanie and her kids Anna and Mattie visited. Yay! They arrived late Friday night after Morgan was in bed. I hadn't told Morgan that his cousins were coming because I wanted it to be a surprise, and because Morgan has no sense of time. If I said that Anna and Mattie were coming tomorrow he would run to the window and look out of it for hours just waiting for them.
So, when our visitors arrived we chatted and such, and either we woke up Morgan or he hadn't actually slept yet. But I heard excited screams and chirps coming from his bedroom and made the decision to let him come out to greet his cousins. When I went into his room he said in an excited, high-pitched squeal, "I wanna see Mattie!" I don't know how he knew Mattie was here rather than some other child. Then he jumped around the house in complete happiness and took far too long to settle down to sleep.
The next day we walked/rode to the commissary, went swimming, had a barbecue with my cousins, played Rockband and board games and had a grand ol' time.
Thanks for the visit Stephanie!
