For me, it was a super busy work week that flew by way too fast. And so that I don’t forget the more meaningful happenings in life this week I’ll put down a few anecdotes here.
It was a big week up in the nighttime sky. The bright and shiny moon (a new fascination Lydia picked up from her cousin Nick) returned in full force from its hiding place (not sure where it was hiding but it was). Each night Lydia made sure we knew it was out and told us exactly where to look to find it.
Luke thought he could successfully pull off what few others have done before - The Gallon Challenge. Even after emptying Ashley he wasn’t satisfied. He didn’t care where we got it, he wanted more milk. He downed almost entire bottle of formula. He forgot one very important rule though ... to make the challenge count you have to hold the milk down. That one tiny detail proved too much to overcome.
Luke has now added cooing and smiling to his list of activities. These bring a much needed balance to his tooting, burping and pooping - as cute as those things are.
One night this week, on the way home from an activity, Lydia blurted out from the back-seat that she needed to check her email. I had to do a quick check to make sure it was still 2008 and that I hadn’t missed a chunk of years of her life. I’m not sure where she picked it up; I guess at some point she’s heard either Ashley or me say it. Kids grow up too fast.
