Kenny became a big brother. Luckily, Luke – our little lump- arrived a little early. I’m not a pleasant pregnant woman. Luke absolutely loves Kenny and Kenny has been a great big brother so far. We’ve only had a few “take Luke back to the hospital” pleas and one booger in the hair incident. So far Luke has been an easy baby – this may have more to do with fact that we actually know what we’re doing this time around. Luke’s one little quirk is that he doesn’t like change. We laugh b/c he could be sitting in his highchair sideways but if he’s not upset, you don’t move him or he’ll scream bloody murder. He’s a funny little man. Kenny played soccer (or bunch ball as Eric calls it) this summer. That was hilarious! The kids spent more time walking on this dirt path on the soccerfield than actually playing. Luckily we had no expections before it started. Kenny also took swimming lessons all summer. It’s amazing. He can already jump in and swim to the 2nd lane line. In September, he started preschool. I still can’t believe I have a child in school. He’s adjusted well to school and even starred as Joseph in their christmas story play. When I say starred, I mean he dressed up as Joseph and was led around by the teacher while she told the story. Eric finished his first half marathon this summer and found out he would be moving from detective to corporal at the police department. He changed positions earlier this month. I started working part-time at the new community center as the pool manager, mainly on weekends. So far, so good.
2008 – Resolutions
1. Get in shape so I’m not huffing and puffing at our church’s 5K run in May. We did the Sprint 5K on Thanksgiving Day and I had to run 2 miles and walk 1. Eric wants me to do a half marathon with him but I guarentee that won’t happen this year…probably not even in 2009.
2. Work with Kenny on writing his alphabet and doing his school books. School books = preschool activity books I found at Wal-Mart.
3. Spend more one-on-one time with Luke. It’s so hard with 2! All Kenny had was one-on-one time.
Maybe by sharing these I’ll actually do them this year.
