So I got the greatest thing ever in the mail today. It's a Christmas gift for someone. Thus the secret. I like it so much I'm almost tempted to keep it for myself. But then I'd have to come up with another idea. I love it when something turns out better than you'd hoped.

Anyway, Luke has been sick/teething lately. He's had a fever since Saturday. Pretty low grade, but enough to make him not sleep well for his naps, so he's been extra cranky. Today, no temp and he's acting like himself again. He basically hasn't played with toys since Saturday. He's been very clingy. Hopefully we're over the hump and he'll have a tooth to show for all this. Otherwise, that means he's been for real sick...and we've still got the same amount of teeth on the way to crank him out in the future.

Mr. Universe

So, after my last post, Kyle received a "fan mail" for being great and helping out with that kind of horrible poop mess. I'm thinking after yesterday, he might just deserve SOME fan mail. Like maybe 2 or something.

Last night we were getting ready for bed and Kyle says -out of the blue-, "OU has a by tomorrow, so why don't I watch Luke and you see what Shanna is doing. You guys could go shopping or something." I have to admit, I was stunned speachless. I was so excited I literally had dreams all night long about all the things I could get done today sans Luke. This morning I told Kyle I was greedy (see how I repay kindness? There's no question who the better person is in this relationship!) and that I needed 2 days of him watching Luke, that I had too long of a To Do list to just go have fun with Shanna (sorry Shanna! But from the sound of it there will TOTALLY be a next time!! Start saving your Shanna dollars now!!!). So today I went and did almost all of my Christmas shopping. I have just a handful of people left (the ones I didn't have ideas for). I left at 10:30 and didn't get home until 4. I made 12 stops. Today would have been completely impossible without Kyle. Isn't this the greatest story you've ever heard? Fun day with Shanna...TBA.
Sorry ladies, he is SO taken. =)

We had an emergency.

He looks sweet and inocent. Things are seldom what they seem.

A poop emergency. I have to leave for my bible study at 6:10. So at 6pm I went back to change Luke's dirty diaper and gather up my things to head out the door. Unknown to me, he had pooped out of his diaper, so when I took of his pants it got all over his leg and his sock...big mess. However, I've dealt with the likes of THAT before. But then he kicked. And not just a little kick, an all out spazoid kick. Poop flew everywhere. My clothes, my face. So I stood there and yelled for Kyle. The poor guy. What a mess to walk in on. He took over and I hopped in the shower...and I was still out the door at 6:10 and made it to Precepts on time. That's right. I'm fast like that.
