Lately, Luke is REALLY into superheroes..... He mostly never argues with my outfit choice of the day if it involves Batman, Superman, The Hulk, and sometimes even Super-Grover.... This past weekend, he spent Saturday dressed in his new Junk-food Batman shirt (which has a really neat cape that can be attached with Velcro) and Sunday he decided to be Superman. He wore a little blue silk cape that came from Wal-mart.  He has also learned somewhere along the way that Batman "pights" (fights) and he will crouch down in this squirrel-like stance and then pop up and say "pight".  I love that he is getting to the point of imaginary play.

So.... Luke is over 2.... he loves to READ on the potty, but rarely does anything else happen on there.  We have a seat adapter thing (as shown) and a small potty, but so far we haven't been successful in the potty training.  He is interested in the idea of potty, so we encourage him to sit, but he just hasn't
"GOTTEN" it yet.  I know they say that it takes a bit longer for boys to become trained, but we are going to shoot for full-out potty training the week after Christmas! Wish us luck!!

A new favorite thing to do...

My sweet boy.... actually putting the ornaments on the tree.... His FAVORITE thing to do is to take them off and put them back on.  I totally meant to decorate the rest of the tree this weekend, but I just didn't get around to it.  We had our North Pole breakfast (a week later than I intended), we had lunch and a nap, and I made a casserole for dinner (Paula Deen's mexican chicken casserole), I did SEVERAL loads of laundry and dishes, made a trip to Wal-Mart and worked on my new garlands (I will post those soon).
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend! Monday arrives soon!

where oh where

Where have I been? Each day I think to myself, "I really need to blog"..... well..... I do! I really do! I love looking through the old posts and so.... I PROMISE, really really PROMISE that this is something that I am going to start doing again. I want to be able to go over most of my days with my sweet Luke and remember and re-live....

So.... we went to Alabama for Thanksgiving. Luke got to ride the golf-cart at my dad's for 2 solid days and now each morning (and every other opportunity to tell us what he wants to do) he says "I go ride in go-cart?!"

yep.... I did it... I finally graduated!!! It sure took long enough! HA! Actually, this time just flew by. I started when Luke was 3 months old and next month, the little man will be 2 years old! I hope to get back into the swing of blogging again... baby steps.....
