Ok, I'm glad I am not going crazy thinking you did stay at OKW for part of your trip.

Aww, I love that picture of the little guy on the monorail. He looks so cute in his t-shirt and 1st visit button! I bet that was so much fun seeing everything through his eyes.

I miss the skyway too.

OMG. I love the pictures of the little guy on IASW. I love watching little kids take in everything around them on that ride. Their eyes get so big and it's just adorable. I can't wait until I have a little one of my own to take on IASW.

I totally know how it goes not even paying attention to all the amazing stuff as you watch the wonder in a child's eyes. It's just so amazing. I remember our first night last year as we watched Wishes from California Grill, my mom kept telling me to watch the fireworks and I just couldn't take my eyes off Landon. So cute.

I bet he loved IASW! That really is a great one for little kids. There's so much to look at it and it's all so pretty. I'm so sad I just missed it!! It was closed for our trip, which wasn't even long after yours!!

MMMMM Cosmic Rays!! I love it there. Sonny Eclipse is pretty sweet!

I love that Little Guy had to stand up on the monorail, too! Was he doing it because the other guys were? Because on our first trip, when I was ten and my brother was seven, he always had to stand up, even on the empty buses. I guess it was just the novelty of standing up in something that was moving without getting in trouble for it.

I love the t-shirts, they're so cute! And I love Little Guy taking in all the sights on IASW

That's awesome to hear that he had such a great first reaction to being at WDW.

Can't wait to hear how the rest of your day went

Life is what happens in between trips to WDW
Those "flying cookies" flying through space can be seen
I'm hoping that the little guy likes them!

I'm so glad you like my writing. I try so hard to get across how I was feeling and everything that was going on.

Isn't that hat adorable?!

He loved his button. He had to make sure it wasn't falling off like every 2 minutes. haha

It's so true! It's so hard to take your eyes off of them!

He LOVED IASW. Yeah we just missed it, it closed the day after we left! That stinks you didn't get to ride it!

Haha, he HAD to stand up because Uncle, Daddy, and Fiance were standing. He has to be "one of the guys". I know...he kept waiting for us to yell at him. We told him he could stand as long as he held on with both hands.

Glad you like the shirts!

Tinkgurlfriend, you are doing such a fabulous job with the Little Guy! I love that you take the time to show him everything and explain everything to him, and that you listen to him. So many people don't do that with their kids and it's so important. You are clearly going to be a wonderful mom one day! Also, how old is he?

Yay for finally making it to the MK! I love that your little guy's first ride was IASW since that was my little girl's favorite as well on first trip. She now knows the song by heart, she even tries to sing it in the different languages. I can't wait to see all of his reactions!

That is such a sweet picture. Look how happy they all are!

I know exactly what you mean about Small World. Little heads just bob back and forth trying to take it all in.

I am all caught up on your report. It is so exciting to hear about your little guy's first trip. I can't wait to hear about the big meeting between the two of you.

Oh, you are definitely getting things across. I missed more of Disney last year because I was watching DS to see how he was enjoying it! Disney is so amazing through the eyes of a little one. How old is he? He looks about my son's age.

Thanks disneygirlfriend. I really try to be a good example for him. Me, Grandma, Mom, and Sis all do since he doesn't have a mom anymore. He's 3 1/2...almost 4! I can't believe it.

Oh my gosh, thank you for reminding me! He also tried to sing in the different languages one of the other times we rode it. It was hilarious. I think your DD and my Little Guy would get along.

Love the matching t-shirts! They are so cute. I would have been doing the same thing that you were doing....pointing out each and every little thing that we were seeing! I never want anyone to miss anything...especially on their first trip.

Isn't it amazing watching someone (especially a little guy) see the Castle for the first time. It's so awesome. His hat is so cute.

Great update. Loved hearing about Little Guy seeing the Magic Kingdom for the first time. There is something so magical about that. Always brings a lump to my throat when I see my two girls in awe like that. Very very special.
