The Rest of Luke’s Birthday…

Okay, so this was definitely one of those weekends where you need a weekend to recover from your weekend :)  It was busy, busy, but we were surrounded by lots of amazing friends and family and it was allll worth it.  Friday evening we had people over for pizza and of course, Luke was showered with gifts.

Saturday Becca came over and kicked my bum into gear with the bedrooms.  She kept me motivated and moving and we got alot done on moving Luke into his new room and getting the baby room ready for Dylan.  They’re both kind of disastrous still, but definitely making progress.  The biggest problem at the moment is that Luke is not at all interested in moving into his new room and his big boy bed.  Any suggestions??  I definitely don’t want to push too hard.  I know he’s still young, and Dylan will be in our room for at least a month, I’m sure, so I know there’s still time.  So after working around the house, we met Aunt Carrie and Uncle Ryan at Mimi’s for dinner.  They gave Luke a tricycle that he LOVES.  He can’t reach the pedals, but it has a cool parent push bar thing, and Tommy has already taken him for several long walks and he steers his little steering wheel and makes car noises :)

Sunday we had our “blogger party.”  I seriously slacked on the picture taking at this one.  The day started out pretty stressful when I decided about an hour before the party that I just had to run to the grocery store.  We were leaving and Luke was kind of slumped in his carseat, so I grabbed his crotch with one hand and his forearm with my other hand to give him a boost to get him to sit up more and pulled his elbow out of socket… again!!  He cried pretty much the whole way home, wouldn’t use it, and when he got on the phone with Tommy he just kept saying “hurts.  hurts.”  So while we were sitting at home waiting for our guests, Tommy decided he wanted to take him to the ER.  He called me a couple minutes later and said he was turning around because Luke was drinking out of his cup with both arms and wasn’t fussing or crying.  Tommy and I had both tried to rotate it, so I’m not sure if it was something we did or something Luke did, but thank goodness there was a birthday boy at his birthday party!!  The kids got in the pool, Luke was once again showered with gifts, and we sat around and had some good girl talk.
