Odds and Ends

There are a few recent pictures that I haven't blogged about but wanted to quickly share. Those are below (obviously). A couple other random thoughts of late:

*Luke was 23 months old last Thursday. My baby is almost 2! Time goes much too fast.
*Luke and I have season passes to the local pool. He absolutely loves it! I'll eventually get some pics while we're there but it's hard when it's only me and Luke.
*As a family, we are so happy to have the McBride's here in Edmond with us now. We love hangin' out together. Luke even knows where their house is and will repeatedly say Benjamin's name on the way there.
*Weekly ice cream dates with the McBride's are awesome!
*My sister is celebrating her 30th birthday tomorrow- Happy Birthday Sarah!
*My mom's chemo is almost a third of the way done (she gets the pump out tomorrow to make that an official measure). Overall things are going very well. Her sensitivity to cold is the biggest problem which she says isn't too bad compared to what she could be experiencing. I'm so happy that she's handling it fairly well.
*The rain in OKC yesterday was ridiculous! I'm sure you saw something on the news about it at some point. We had a lake in our backyard for a while and Troy was stuck in one spot on the highway for about 2 1/2 hours until a policeman told him to back up and go the wrong way because they were closing the highway. All is well now- only an absurd amount of humidity is left.
*Life is good and we're all enjoying the summer here at the Johnson household.

This is Luke's new booster chair. I decided to see if he would eat better in a chair, with a plate and more like Mom and Dad. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't (seems to be a theme with toddlers). Doesn't he look like such a big boy sitting there feeding himself.

This is a new fun routine with Dad; eating pudding after dinner. It's not every night so Luke gets very excited when Daddy asks if he wants to share some pudding. First they each get to lick the lid so they won't miss any of the yummy goodness. A funny side note: Luke has his tongue out waiting for this while Troy is still getting the pudding out of the frig.
Then they each take turns getting a spoonful of pudding. Luke sometimes gets monster bites and Dad has to slow him down a bit but Luke doesn't seem to mind. Daddy always lets Luke have the last bite! And finally Luke declares, "All gone," with a huge messy grin on his face.
