Today, I took James to see his first movie: Alvin & the Chipmunks - the Squeakuel. I did not know how well James would do, but we go revved up to go. I packed a sandwich and banana to smuggle into the theater. We talked about the movie tickets, the big screen and the chipmunks on the drive there. I was a little nervous, especially in light of James' recent antics and the fact that he's...well, two.

I ordered a giant pretzel and we tiptoed into the movie that had already begun. As we sat near the front and with nobody around us, he settled in and began eating his sandwich. I dropped my entire pretzel onto the theater floor as we were settling in. Nice.

But the movie? He loved it. The chipmunks were a huge hit.

After about fifteen minutes, he started to squirm. He looked behind us, suddenly realizing that there were a ton of people sitting behind us.

He stood up in my lap. "Oooh," he said, pointing to the crowd behind us. "Friends!"
