When we went to Red Lobster last Monday Gus sat in a restaurant high chair for the first time ever. He loved it! He played with his toys and laughed at the waitress and nibbled the cheddar bay biscuits. Since this was Kyle's only day off in a 12 day work stint of 12 1/2 hour days we really didn't want to cut into Reese's time with daddy. So we went at 2:45pm thinking the lunch people were done and the early bird dinner eaters hadn't started so we could have the boys with us and not worry about being disruptive. Wrong!! It was totally packed. I couldn't believe how many people were there. Gus was perfect through the ordering, drinks, biscuits, salad portion. Of course about 30 seconds after the meals arrived he started getting loud. He's still at that stage where a laugh can pretty seamlessly turn into a cry and if you are not seeing his face you don't now which it is. So we did end up eating our meals with Gus on our laps. Reese was totally engrossed in coloring and eating, so that was very helpful. He's finally to the age where he can sit for the whole length of the meal without getting antsy.
