"You are getting bigger Ethan, lots bigger!"
"Yeah. I'm eating lots of..... (thinks)"
"Yeah. Foods. I growing bigger. I be in Karina's class soon- when I get bigger."
Lucas only has 2 more weeks of babyhood! So, he's practicing his driving skills. I had to switch him to the 18 month clothes- killed me! He's sitting at the table in a booster seat when it's not too messy of a meal, he really likes that. And the boy eats. And he eats. And he eats. He's still just taking 3-4 steps here and there before dropping to the floor and crawling. His new favorite hang out place- the couch. He stays up there forever, which would be great except every now and then he dives off the front. So I have to stay close. And keep shoving him back up there. It's exhausting. Oh, and he gets fixated witih things now and carts them around everywhere. Used to be just remotes, phones... yesterday - a fork. I got stabbed so many many times. But just try to get it from him- he's strong! And stubborn (totally not from me).
I have 3 more days until I'm officially back to work. I wish I could say I was going to be livin' it up, but I'll be working on getting my room ready. I don't want to stay late any of those first few days, so I'm doing what I can now. Plus - weigh in is on Thursday. I must stay good for the next few days- really good! Luckily all that work in the classroom burns some serious calories - as does playing with my boys. Here's to 2 more pounds to make it an even 20 for the summer (25 in all)....
