Snakes and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Shelley said I needed to update my blog more, but I don't have a lot to say so this is kind of random. Having a little boy is a whole new world for me. Growing up I had lots of sisters. We liked Barbies, dolls, and dress up. We didn't play ball. We didn't play in the dirt. We didn't get the most excitement in our life from scaring people. Luke is so fun to have around, but he is definitely forcing me to do things that I don't normally do. We play hide and seek on a daily basis. We play cars and build towers, just to knock them down (I don't understand this, but Doug does it too so it must be a guy thing). He is way better than me at catching, throwing, and hitting the ball--any ball. But he also makes me realize how blessed I am. In this picture he was sharing his car with Abby. He kept setting it on her tummy. For him this is a really big deal. He has a problem with sharing and he loves red race cars (because they look like Lightening McQueen). So giving it to her was so hard for him. He loves Abby. It was so cute.

I included these next pictures that I took to show how precious Abby is too.

The other day Luke wanted to help me do dishes but the water kept running down his sleeve so we just gave up and took his shirt off.

I realized that he just liked the bubbles so I let him have a bubble bath and he loved that even more.

We had a wonderful Easter. Don't they look precious in their Easter clothes?
Luke was very concerned when he was up and dressed and Abby was still in bed.He kept getting her church shoes and laying them on top of her. That is what he is holding in this picture.
Best dressed cowboy around. . .but you still can't make me smile for the camera.
Hope everyone's Easter was great.

More Birthday

I stole these pictures off of Mary Lynn's blog of Luke's birthday because her Megan shares a birthday with Luke.
Megan got a fishing pole from Grandma and Grandpa. Luke thought it was the very coolest thing ever. Look at his little face. Megan was nice and let him play with it.

Even when he would go under the water, he loved the slide.

I just had to add this picture of Daddy 'babysitting'.

Happy Birthday

I can't believe it. Luke turned two. Everyone says that it goes so fast and even though you know it does, it is hard to just hold on to each moment.
Luke is all boy. He loved this Little People Garage because it has a ramp for all of his cars to slide down. We were all done birthday shopping for him and then Daddy came home with this giant tractor for him the day before his birthday. He loves to spoil him.
On Luke's birthday we went swimming and then had waffle's (Luke's favorite) at Grandma's house. I forgot my camera so I don't have pictures, but Luke loved the slide and wanted to jump off of the diving board when Daddy did.

The day after Luke's birthday his Grandma and Grandpa came to visit. He really didn't care that they came as long as they brought his "fun" Uncles and Aunts. Mitchell, Chad (the all time favorite), Melanie and Shelley don't have their own kids so Luke loves all of the attention that they give him.

He loves the slide that they bought for him, but he uses it more as a ramp to send his cars down, than as a slide.
He is the fastest person I've ever seen at blowing out his candles. Maybe that is because I always tell him to blow on his food to cool it off before he takes a bite. I am sure that is not proper manners.
Since he got the movie cars for Christmas, he has been in love with all things Cars. You walk through Walmart and they have Lightening McQueen everything and he wants it all. I am not much of a cake decorator so instead we bought toy cars and made Radiator Springs--complete with the Cozy Cone Motel and Luigi's Casa De La Tires. The tractor in the back left corner is "tipped."

Abby enjoyed the party too. Side note. We have now had this balloon for almost two weeks and the helium in it is going strong. It is still floating on the ceiling. Isn't that crazy? or have I just always had cheap balloons that lose their air fast?
