Wet or Dry?

This morning we used Luke's potty time to have a lesson about Wet and Dry.  Luke's never been a very sensory kid, which has been great. Hot weather, cold weather, soaking wet clothes: none of those things ever seem to bother him.  But when it comes to potty training, his lack of sensitivity towards wetness has been quite the barrier, as you can imagine.  So we'll keep practicing telling the difference between wet and dry until he's got it down.

Work Weekend with Grandpa & Grandma

We were very blessed with a visit from Grandpa & Grandma W this weekend, who came for a few days to help us around the house.   Dad and Sam made great gains in the basement, the largest of which was the installation of the bathtub.

Mom impressed us all with her ability to landscape our entire yard while at the same time watching Luke all weekend.  I think I need to take lessons from this woman!

Of course, everyone spent some time for just sitting and playing with Luke, too.

And what did I do?  Hit up a season's worth of garage sales, ran several errands, painted and sewed to my heart's content, and even got to sleep in until 9am. It was glorious.

Thanks Mom and Dad for a fabulous weekend!

Luke always loves it when David and Sarah stop by for a visit. Next time we see them, there will be two more babies to join the party!

Reading a magazine?

I parked myself in a cozy chair on the lawn this morning with some magazines, ready to watch Luke play with his toys. (This is my new regime, as carrying, pushing, or chasing my son is not an option for me in this state that we call very pregnant).  Instead, Luke decided to join me and look at magazines too.

Boats Wa wa!!

We had a beautifully warm and sunny morning today, made perfect with a trip to Frederik Meijer Gardens. I'm so happy that I got a membership to this summer wonderland, because I see hours and hours of blissful playtime in our future (while I sit happily in the shade).  Luke's friend Sierra was thrilled to join us in the tree house, the giant sand box, and of course, the Great Lakes replica teaming with boats.

We had a dry wall party in our basement today, thanks to many friends for all the help!  I've been waiting for pictures to post, but haven't gotten them yet, so in the meantime we'll have to settle with stage 1 and stage 2:

Is it bad if Luke's favorite new "toy" is a screwdriver?
