Recently we found the box of Marble Works at my mom's house. Luke loves building towers and watching the marbles race around. He also loves sitting on the marbles. I haven't a clue as to why, other than I think he thinks he's funny.
Because we live within walking distance of a big farmer's market/swap meet, we felt like we had to check it out for something good to bring home. Between the monotony of cheap knock-off shoes and cheap knock-off bags, there are some diamonds in the rough. Like this one that came home with us. I've been wanting a cozy coope real bad. He loves it and drove it all the way home (with his feet up and his dad pushing him, that is).
That afternoon when we wanted to go to Home Depot, Luke had a hard time understanding why we couldn't take his car. He was fairly annoyed with us that we wouldn't at least let him try to drive to Home Depot. His car has now become the standard against which all other cars are compared to. For example, his car is THE car and my car is the "big" car.
Baby dolls are classic too, right? And Lego Sharks? OK, maybe not quite classic, but I love this sleeping boy who can't let go of play time. Sometimes I think he thinks he's a shark- if he doesn't stop moving, he might die.
Luke was lucky enough to get an invite to see the set-up for a Disney Princess Party. Now that Emily is an older girl scout, her troop puts on events for littler girl scouts. We went for a few minutes before we had to get Mac from work to watch them set up, but when it was time to go, Luke wouldn't budge. I left him with my mom to go get Mac, and then we stayed until we were able to convince Luke to leave. He was mesmerized, as were many of the younger girl scouts. Luke is pretty much in love with girls already. He has a crush on a girl in his gymnastics class, although it's cooled since she didn't want a hug last week. Sometimes I catch him staring at girls with an intense look on his face. When I ask him what he's looking at he'll break into a big smile and say "girls" very sheepishly. Oh, and have I ever told you that when I do workout DVDs he'll walk by the t.v. and say "Hi, girls?". Yup, that's my little ladies' man.
