Luke has a fever… which means we didn’t sleep much last night. The Hubs was kicked to the couch because all 3 of us, plus my belly couldn’t handle sleeping in one bed! It was better with just me and Luke, but not great! I have found that a fever with no other symptoms can mean lots of different things and I’m just hoping that it’s one of the things that doesn’t require a doctor’s visit later on. He’s been playing like normal and eating well.. so we’re good… so far!
One of Luke’s new favorite things to do now is ask me, “How you doin‘ Mommy?” Then I say, “I’m good. How are you doing Luke?” And he replies, “I’m goo-wad.” I can’t even begin to count how many times that conversation went on yesterday, over and over!
This weekend Luke spent some time with my mom and dad. The Hubs and I got to go to a movie by ourselves!! We had a great time being together! I know it will probably be a while before that is possible again but it is something that we try to make a priority (and will continue to try with 2 kiddos). It’s important for a child to know that Mommy and Daddy care about one another and make each other a priority. I definitely think it gives them a great sense of security. The past 2 anniversaries that we’ve had, while having Luke, we’ve been able to get away. When he was just 4 months old we spent one night away and then last year we went to Helen, GA for 2 whole nights! It is hard to leave him but I think it’s absolutely necessary in a marriage. Like I said, it’s great for the child(ren). But it’s also wonderful for the marriage relationship. I know the Hubs and I really look forward to nights like this past weekend. Having children is a full time job. It is the most wonderful and sometimes scary responsibility. Parents need time to reconnect and relax, even if it’s just a movie, take out Mexican food and a morning to sleep in! This year we will probably skip the mini ‘get-away’ since we will have a 6 wk old on our anniversary but we might can get away for 2 hours to have dinner! I’m sure 2 hours alone will be needed by then! 🙂
That was sort of a mini-ramble because the point of my story was to tell you something cute Luke said this weekend… The Hubs and I came out to my moms to eat dinner and pick up Luke Friday night. We decided to go ahead and get Luke bathed and pj’s on before we left since we knew he’d be out by the time we drove the hour home. Well, after his bath I was getting him dressed while my mom entertained him. We call Luke’s bottom his booty. As you know, with toddlers, many words don’t come out exactly how they are suppose to. So, when Luke says booty, it comes out ‘booby’. (Which is funny in itself!) One thing we’ve been dealing with here lately is Luke calling everything his, whether it is or not. He will say, ‘my car’, ‘my milk’, ‘my house’ and on and on. You might can see where this is going. As I started to put on the diaper, which Luke wasn’t happy about, he started saying, “My booby, my booby!” My mom just looked at me like, WHAT is he saying?? So, I had to explain that his booby is in fact his booty! Hahah! It was so funny because he kept saying it over and over!!! I absolutely love the age that he is at because he is saying so much! And some of it is just so funny! I love every minute of watching him grow!
Well, speaking of every minute… time is passing and he is sleeping… and I should be to, considering last night and another possible repeat tonight! Please send prayers our way for a healthy little boy!
