We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Habby Birthday Boo!

Breakfast at Coco's, a day at Sea World, and dinner at In & Out. Best.Day.Ever.
He is so excited to be five!! And wanted not much more than to touch as many fish/sharks/sea stars as possible. Sea world has these cleaner fish now, called Doctor fish, and when you put your hands in the tank they nibble all the dead skin off your hands. So Lukas had tons of little fish kissing his hands in swarms. And got to pet zebra sharks again and again. And I won't lie....having my hands in that fish tank for 20 minutes was like a free spa treatment! He is almost 48 inches tall. 52 pounds. Size one shoes. Love's color green. Sleeps with his favorite stuffed animal, "Bear". Likes playing with cars, sticks, snails. Love's riding his bike and scooter and hearing stories. We're in the middle of the stories of Tom Sawyer and hope Injun Joe gets caught soon.  He signs "no" pretty emphatically. I like it better than yelling. And I love that he signs "I love you" too! He has a best friend named Jacob, who is a month older and a whole head shorter. He cheers when I tell him we are having salad and asks to invite some friend's family over.  He likes to stay in jammies as long as possible mornings. He loves to eat eggs, salami sandwiches and pizza. He likes to watch BBC Planet Earth & Veggie Tales, and have family film evenings. He likes to play in the pool/jacuzzi at our complex, especially when "the girls" (Kaelyn & Riane) are there. He likes to help vacuum and clean the toilet (?) but dislikes sorting the silverware, which is his job every day. He loves to sing and dance, and do window hangs/pizza swings from the gymnastics bars. Dad is his Superman and right now Lukas wants to be a teacher like Dad. Maybe teaching biology or German. He says big words sometimes that make us laugh or stare in amazement. He loves/needs to move. A lot. Heaven help his Kindergarten teacher. I hope she "gets" kindergarten boys. He can kinda write his name and knows most all of his upper/lowercase letters. He likes to "read to himself" even though he cannot yet. He dislikes drawing, coloring, puzzles, and tomatoes at the moment (unless they're disguised). He is a spunky, loving, sensitive, giving 5 year old boy and I am grateful to be his mom.
