I'm going to a bit of a mini-series this week....It's all a bunch of "Luke Randoms." It'll show everybody what a day (no days are "typical") in the life of Luke looks like.
Yep, stay with me folks -- I'm going to be one of those bloggers (for a bit anyways) who only blogs about his or her kids. (Please remind me that I'm not normally like that).
Every once in awhile, and today is one of those days, Luke gets to eat breakfast on the couch. When he does, he MUST use a sippy cup with a "stopper valve." He MUST eat something dry (and today -- it was a dry waffle -- one without butter, syrup, or any other topping).
Luke likes to do it, and fortunately, at least so far, he doesn't protest at the following meal when he has to eat at the table :)
Last night, Marc and I had a much needed date-night. Luke was home with one of our fabulous teenage baby-sitters, and we were told that he did great.
Like any good and well-meaning parents, we, of course, during the course of our evening, purchased Luke something (just for fun and we thought they were too cute to pass up). We purchased him some Elmo slippers to wear around the house this winter.
As we purchased these slippers, we muttered to ourselves that we never thought we'd be "one of those parents" who actually added to and supported a child's liking of licensed characters.
But, many of you know how that goes :)
After church today, Luke received his slippers (and yes -- he has MY nametag on his shirt from church).
He sat on the floor as I explained to him that they went on his feet -- "They're shoes," I told him (Luke likes to talk about shoes).
Believe it or not, Luke did NOT want them on his feet. So, for now, they're toys.
OR -- in Luke's case (and if you saw my LAST POST), they're merely to have around to feed Elmo.
Yep, Elmo received bites as well as some sips of milk at lunch today....
In this photo, Luke is feeding one of the Elmo slippers some "bites" of his sandwich.
And, just so you all know, even though Luke would NOT wear the slippers, he did take them to bed with him after lunch for his nap. I guess the slippers needed a nap.
And this morning, walking out of church, Luke wanted to run through the parking lot to our vehicle (that's a normal now). Well, our church's parking lot is quite busy after church; therefore, Luke is REQUIRED to hold one of our hands. The problem -- Luke doesn't want to hold our hands while running.
So, a fit ensued in the church parking lot. He ended up being carried across the parking lot screaming. Yep -- GOOD TIMES!
By the time Luke was in his carseat to go home, he demanded his blanket. This photo represents what Luke looked like all the way home from church today (which is only a few minutes of a drive).
