Since I haven't been as blog-happy as of late, I'm going to lump a bunch of things together. Hooray for long, rambly posts!
Luke's first gymnastics class:
One morning we had to drop something off to my mom at work (Trick's Gymnastics) and ended up staying for her toddler class as a trial. Well, Luke loved it so much that we signed up. I'm not sure if I can say enough about how much he loves it. As soon as we're there he's signing "play" and even wants to stay after the class is over trying to get back in the gym area and playing in the playroom listening and dancing to the music. I'm going to try to remember to get photos and videos.
Oh, one morning we stopped by Nana's before class and Luke got "second breakfast". Why is it that everything is better at Nana's?
The only picture I have so far of gymnastics is a big biff on the camera phone. Way to go, Diana.
Luke also had his first all-dry-day (insert picture of him on the potty). He first started having 1-miss days when he was about 9-10 months old and I would get all excited like a pitcher pitching a no-hitter. He hit a big "potty pause" (a.k.a. not wanting to go on the potty) when he started walking. Then he was back on at about 13 months and we started having 1-miss days again. Well, on Friday we finally did it! At this point it's about 75% me and 25% Luke, but he's getting better at telling me. If he's sitting down (car seat, shopping cart, reading books) he can tell me 100% of the time. But if he's playing, all bets are off, and I have to remind.
Saturday was my first 10-mile run. I've been thinking about a half-marathon for a while, and there's one in April I want to do. I decided a couple weeks ago to see if I could do a 6-mile run. I figured if I could do that, I could work up to a half-marathon. So far, so good. I'm super slow, but I have no shame being passed by people twice my age. My knees are killing me, so I'm going to give them a rest after the half-marathon is over and bike or speed-walk instead.
Saturday I also won my first door prize at Babies and Bumps:
It's by Bloom Baby and called the Alma Crib. I'm really excited to use this for our next, yet-to-be-conceived baby (or sell it on ebay and use the cash for other things). It has a couple settings, so it can be a bassinet, too. It is really small and folds really really small, so it will be easy to store. Oh, plus it can be used till age 2, so the next bed we buy will probably be a twin-sized one.
Saturday afternoon was the first time Luke sat through an entire play. We went to see Emily in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory. She was Violet, and did a good job. Luke really liked the music and was dancing around in his seat. Emily also got cast in her first professional play at Music Circus this summer as one of the chorus in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Long rambly post over! Now, go enjoy your Sunday!
