My Baby Boy

The other night, I was thinking about my baby boy, Luke. He turned 5 a few weeks ago and it just hit me how quickly he is growing up. I think sometimes I push him too much to grow up. I hear myself say things like, "Come on, you're five now, you should be able to do this yourself." I have to remind myself that even though he is acting so much older, he is still a little boy. I breaks my heart to think in a few years, he will think playing Legos with his mommy is so lame. I want to do everything I can to keep him little. I decided to write a note to help me remember all the ways he is still my baby boy.

1. His feet don't reach the floor at the kitchen table.

2. He still covers his ears in public bathrooms because the toilet is too loud.

3. He still says "pscketti" instead of "spaghetti"

4. He still asks every morning if he needs to change his underwear.

5. He still believes he can be Superman when he grows up.

6. He still comes to sleep with us when it's storming outside.

7. He still thinks driving through a car wash is the coolest thing ever.

8. He still thinks he'll go blind if he doesn't eat his carrots. (Not that he really cares, though!)

9. He pulls out his light saber ready to fight the bad guys if he hears a strange noise in the house.

10. He still wants to marry his mommy and live with us forever.

Making dirt pudding


Sorting letters

This is something new I've been working on with Princess. I have taught her all the letters of her name. I want to make sure she is really secure with these letters before we go on to others. We did a sorting activity in which she did sorted all the letters of her name. I did them in all uppercase this time. I'll start adding lowercase soon. She did awesome and really had fun!

Hot Street Party

The Young Professionals of our town host a couple of street parties downtown every summer. They are a lot of fun for the kids and for parents to hang out. I was talking so much, I only got pics of the horseback riding when we first got there. We really had fun just hanging out and talking while the kids were playing. Our worship leader from our church is in an 80's cover band that played, too.

She just looks so little on that great big horse!

Thursday, May 7, 2009

Mommy had some things to get done this morning, so Princess got to play with stickers and watch Little Einsteins in her pjs!

We have been working on the letter C, so we made a caterpillar with her name on it. We worked on matching the letters of her name. I was so proud of her. She loved doing this!

After Princess put her caterpillar together, we decided to paint for a while.

Her finished creation. Of course mommy had to get in on the fun!

Since she had so much fun matching the letters of her name, we made a game she could play all the time. She calls it her "homework".
This is why you never leave a 3 year old alone! We never even buy Mt. Dew. Her older sister won it at a school fun night, so she had to sneak a sip!

What Little (and big) Boys are made of

Daddy found a frog outside last night and of course the first thing Superboy wanted it do was hold it!
