For the Love of Elmo
Prior to leaving on our mini vacation, I made sure to show Nathan pictures of the rides and characters that he would see at Sesame Place. Sometimes Nathan is incredibly shy and unwilling to try new things so I wanted him to understand what was coming. While sitting on my lap looking through the Sesame Place website, Nathan said over and over again that he was going to give Elmo and Grover hugs. To my surprise, the second he saw Elmo he attempted to run to him to give him that hug. Of course, I explained that we had to wait for Ian and then wait in a short line. Nathan could barely contain himself. He took off running, right pass Abby Cadaby who was the first character that we were supposed to stop at for a picture, and headed directly for Elmo. Nathan never stopped hugging him. So cute.
