This time around, when May left and Jordan had to say good-bye to her at the airport, his eyes welled up with tears and he whimpered. Likewise, every morning Andy kisses him good-bye because Jordan's been waking up at 6:45 ish and Andy is normally getting ready to leave around 7:15 ish. Yesterday, we realized Jordan refused to give his Daddy a kiss in the afternoon as the three of us were heading out, because in his mind, a kiss is associated with Daddy leaving. He willingly gave me kisses galore but shook his head stubbornly everytime Andy asked for one. It wasn't until he was buckled into his carseat and Andy was ready to drive the car that he gave him a kiss.
Our week was full of things while May was here. We began with some basketball watching while Andy played, had some fancy lunch at Manito Tap House (and blew right through our dining out budget for the month but well worth it despite May and I making fun of Andy for seriously over-hyping the place which was good, but not as amazing as he kept insisting), made numerous trip to Walmart, grocery stores, and the mall, made our way to a Valentine play groups, gymnastics class, had take out from Spaghetti Factory, an elaborate Chinese New Year meal courtesy of May, ice cream with our Groupon, a music store where Jordan got a kazoo and a clown whistle, and storytime at the library. When Jordan was asleep, we played a bunch of board games and had a blast learning Puerto Rico (new Christmas gift for Andy).

We've been constantly telling Jordan that Grandma will be back when Ethan is here. For now, Facetime will have to do.
