Overheard from my son at the Discovery Center while he was playing with another little boy, "that right over there is my mama and she is my favorite". How does it get better? Had to get that one down. Didn't want to forget that!

Luke's Lines - 2

"They call me Dr. Love, Mommy!"

Pumpkin Time!

We carved our first pumpkin together and picked it out at the Rutledge-Wilson Farm this weekend. It was perfect weather and the perfect place to be!

He Spells!!

We were writing with sidewalk chalk tonight and he just announced that his name was spelled L-U-K-E like he had been spelling his whole life. When I picked my jaw up off the ground we had to catch it on tape!

9th Tidbit

Man, I don't ever want to forget these! You do this over and over and over again at night. Yes, I know it is to stall so you don't have to go to sleep but I'll take them any way I can get them! You ask for "dail tisses" (jail kisses) repeatedly. We love it!

Luke enjoys when I blow bubbles with my gum. Well, he kind of enjoys it and it kind of scares him but it TOTALLY makes him giggle!

Axe Man

Most parents read to their kids before bed. Luke would rather have his face melted off. He loves to rock out!

Birthday Pics

Luke's 2nd birthday was celebrated at Pandera Bread. It was a blast. All of the family came to watch him blow out candles and open presents. We also got to break open an pinata which was a lot of fun too. It was a perfect afternoon!

A birthday wouldn't be complete without a song!

Just a Minute!

Luke calls for "five minutes" whenever he isn't quite ready to end ANY fun activity. It is pretty darn cute!

Luke's Lines - 1

This weekend has been a weekend of hilarious talk. You are really into basketball. You now say "bick" (bick) and "fiss" (swish) constantly while we play hoop in the living room. You also instruct us to "use the window" pretty often.

I think my favorite spontaneous thing you have said happened tonight. I put dinner on the table. It is called Cowboy Casserole (I think you and daddy both like that it has "Cowboy" in the name). Anyway you said, "NOW YOU'RE TALKING"!! I've heard daddy say that a million times when I put dinner on the table. I guess you were listening too. This is all so incredibly fun!

Luke is great with the glass but he most imprtantly has a GREAT outlet pass!

First Cut

Luke got his first cut today. We went to Cookie Cutters. Those people know how to treat a little person! It was awesome. I wasn't prepared for how different he was going to look. We were very pleased with the final result though. He looks like such a little man!

We got the 1-2-3s...now we are on to the ABCs. He aced the last half here. He is pretty proud of his new accomplishments and we are too!

Let It Snow!

It is a great week to be a teacher! We are out for some snow days. When it wasn't bitterly cold, Luke and I went out and checked out all of the white stuff. Luke kept saying, "messy, messy, messy car all messy!" He likes things to be nice and tidy...not covered in snow! He was really impressed with the neighbor's snow blower. We had to improvise and use our own snow mower. It seemed to do the trick. While inside during the snow days we spent a lot of time playing cars and listening to music. Snow days are so much more fun now!

Still Buddies

Luke, Carolina and Aubrey had their first playdate very early on. Their ages ranged from 1 week to 3 months during the first visit they had together. We recently got the kids together for another playdate. I think this one was a little more fun for them. We played for an hour at Gold Minds over the break. We also joined Hayden and some of his good buddies. I wanted to post this picture to show the before and after. My, how they have grown! What sweet babies they are! Asher did have a great time playing. He was just not into stopping all the fun for a picture. Who can blame him?

Christmas 2009

Holy Cow! What a Christmas it was. We hit all the family celebrations this year. There were a total five stops. There were, however, countless laughs, bites of goodness, and piles of presentes. Luke had a ball. He thought every single time we left the house we should go somehwere and open presents! Hope your Christmas was a blast too!
