Luke Goes to Luke’s!

Well, Dadddy gets to go to off to work and other places, and usually Mommy is home alone with the Little Boy for hours on end… so today, Dadddy kicked Mommy out of the house – sent her off to do whatever she might enjoy while Daddy played Mr. Mom all day… and what fun we had! Here is the sweet little boy sleeping like, uh, well, like a baby. But getting to this blissful state takes a little work sometimes. One of my favorite tricks is cuddling with the boy having quality bonding and lovey time, and then pullin’ the old bait n’ switch… little boy falls alseep with Daddy only to replaced by pillows! To master this Daddy move, Verrrrrrrrrrrry slowly first replace the arm under baby’s head with one pillow, keeping your hand on baby and face close in case he peeks…. then slip away holding his hand and replace your body with another pillow. Finally, help him clutch the pillow case thinking it is your shirt… and your FREE! They do eventually wake up and figure out they’ve been had…. but that’s ok, got some work done! Next it is time for some motivational training and …

NEWS FLASH: Baby Luke Does the Dew Too!

Baby Luke has received many presents from family and friends, but I think his favorite was when his Aunt Barbara brought him a stuffed lion, a musical lamb that plays “Jesus Loves Me” and a six pack of baby sized Mountain Dew cans! Did you know that standard bottle nipples will snap onto the top of a soda can? You may not realize this, but Mountain Dew is actually a health drink!

Newest Mom on the Block!

Today is Mother’s Day – and it is a very special one, since it is my wife Sara’s FIRST Mother’s Day as a Mom! Now, a lot of people tease me because I put more pictures of me and Luke on my blog than I do of Sara and Luke…. Well, I could just say it’s my blog, and she can get her own blog if she wants to, but the truth is that first of all, there is an extensive approval process required for me to post pictures of Sara on my blog! Plus, many of pictures of Luke include me because Sara is a great photographer and is quicker at grabbin’ the camera. Though, I will admit, that another factor is that I do hog the kid a bit, so when we are both home, it is more common to see me with the baby than Sara since she gets him all day when I’m at work. (Unless, of course, there is a dirty diaper, then she will be more likely to be with him!) Anyway, since it is Mother’s Day, I will risk posting a few pictures of the newest mom in our home without prior approval….. …

On being a father….

Oh yeah…. being a DAD is the best thing in the world. (Oh, just let me gush.) I’ve waited twelve years to gush. Longer, in fact. I’ve wanted to be a dad since I was a boy myself. My dad was so much fun I often thought, “Someday I’ll get to BE THE DAD and how cool will that be!” Well, it is, and I know I’m only in the early stages. But that smile that appears when I enter the room, those eyes that follow me around the house, even up the stairs to the balcony on the second floor, those little hands that clutch mine, those legs that kick sporatically when I make him laugh….. oh, yeah. It’s all good. Yeah, sure, there’s that little rear end that needs wipin’ every now and then, but then, that’s what mommies are for, right? (JUST KIDDING!) I’m sure I’m just the 156,295,905,283,004th Christian dad to make this discovery, but being a Dad teaches me so much about my heavenly Abba Father…. Luke only cries when he is hungry, poopy, or in need of sleep. He craves love and attention from his parents and is eager to learn and interact with …
