Workin' on da Rail!

Lately, Luke has been singing, "I've been working on the railroad," as he plays with his toys. Here he is in the play room.

This song is still hard to understand when he sings it. :)

Bethany takes beautiful pictures!

Sunday night, we were at the Getz's. Bethany and I were watching the kids and cleaning up after Clara's grand birthday party.

At one point, near the end of the evening, I looked over at Luke and noticed that he was playing with a full diaper. Where did that come from?

I checked Luke over and found that he had been the diaper's owner. Oh no. No more diaper and I didn't think I had another change for him. I went out to tell Nathan that Luke had no diaper and that we should go.

While I was outside, Bethany asked Luke what had happened. He told her, "I am a boy.. escape!" and smiled. So I guess he found out how to "escape" from his diaper. Hopefully he decides soon to escape to the toilet!

Luke says

Some treasures that we hear from our dear little boy:

"Buna buna bo!" - this is what Luke says whenever grown ups are using words that he doesn't understand. Whenever I give him the phone to say, "hi" to someone, this is what he says.

"Moonana" - Lukes word for banana. He know how to say banana, but prefers moonana. Bananas are shaped like moons and are generally a similar color in most children's books.

"Thank you, thank you, dinosaur." - From a book that we read often. One day while I was talking out loud to myself, I said, "Thank you Lord." Luke looked at me sternly and said, "No, thank you dinosaur." I laughed. :)

"Lukey tukey." - How Luke refers to himself right now.

Other favorite phrases: "Der it is!" "Dat's better!" "Clara beara." "Owen has a fuzzy blanket!"

I'll try to write more sayings down as I remember them. :)

I recently made Luke a pair of flannel pajama pants and bought him a top to match since it is beginning to get cold at night (yay!). Luke LOVES the pants. They have construction equipment and trucks on them. He wants to wear them all day. Last night he actually asked to go to sleep. All for love of wearing the pj's. Luke doesn't know how gratifying this is to his mother. :)

Here he is:
