I had to take pictures for my photo class, and so we decided to go to the playground at Ian's Elementary school! It was a great place to get some good shots of the boys and for my assignment! Ian just loves kindergarten! He loves every aspect of the day! I'm so glad! He comes home from school happy each day and I am grateful for that! He is so smart and I am amazed each day with what they are teaching our children so early in life! These pictures are on Ian's playground and the one with the building in the background, that is Ian's class room! Ian LOVES the monkey bars at recess, but says his hands are turning into 'daddy's hands' because now he's getting calluses (sp?) just like Dave! So funny! I love my Ian!

He is starting to coo and smile a lot now. He has had a few milestones too... he found his hands - well, fists - and aparently likes how they taste! He also can reach for the little rings on his play yard and chair. He LOVES when anyone will talk to him and/or sing to him. He smiles with his entire face and I love that! I am desperatly trying to make him laugh, but I get spurts of grunts put together... soon though. His absolute favorite song is 'Little Bunny Foo Foo' and loves when I do the hand motions and bounce him around - although I do have to use the 'wait 30 minutes after you eat to go swimming' rule, otherwise I get a shirt full of throwup! yummmm.
Ian and baby Mason

BUT.... this little boy has mischief embeded into him from I don't know where. He has a very vivid imagination. Oh... not to mention he's very good at hiding... not only himself, but aparently his wet pull-ups as well - which by the way we still haven't found at my mom's house! When he is quiet, that means you better run to find out what he's in to... like the sharpie markers! And this little ADORABLE boy, has an attitude you wouldn't believe - well, maybe you do believe it if you've met him!
Anyway, I just love my Luke and I am constantly reminding myself that "HE'S ONLY THREE" and not to get too frustrated with him. His smile and laughing eyes will butter Dave and I up to the extreme and unfortunatly, Luke knows that!

Yesterday, Luke went to his very first day of Preschool! Yeah! He is going to the same place that Ian went to called the Discovery Cottage. They aren't really a 'preschool', but they do preschool things, and it's a great way for 3 year olds to get acquainted with how things work in preschool. It is run through the parks department and they do fun things like games, activities, crafts, exploring the outdoors and cooking! He had a good time on his first day, and as far as I know, he didn't get in trouble! Plus, he went potty at school all by himself! Bonus!!! Mommy is going to enjoy her two hours a day, three days a week with only Mason! How wonderful for Luke! I'm so proud of my big boy!
Ok, so we're trying to get the potty thing down with Luke (yes... still). But the other day, he was playing in my room while I was working on something on the computer - so I wasn't really paying attention (bad mommy!) - when he comes over and says "Look mommy, I'm Batman!" Ian thought it was really funny that Luke put underwear on his head, and Ian called him a transformer. (what?) Good thing the undies were clean! I guess Luke thought that since he's trying the underwear on the lower half, why not put it on his head too! What a goof! I think he wore it for a few hours that morning, and played with Ian well! Needless to say we're getting really close to Luke being potty trained - and if underwear on his head helps him remember, then by all means... go for it!
