One year ago today...
And, now, just look at my big boy. All grown up!
I can't believe it has already been a year! It has really flown by...a lot faster than I had anticipated it too. I'm so happy because, with this birthday, comes the near end of this deployment. But, it's also quite sad...Luka isn't my little baby anymore. Of course, he'll always be my baby, but he just isn't that little, cuddly baby anymore. He doesn't want to snuggle or be held; he wants to walk all over the place and terrorize his sister. *sigh* I miss that little baby that used to curl up and sleep on my chest for hours. But, I am excited to see him develop his own little personality. I just wish he could slow down a little bit...his daddy is missing out on so much. Actually, Bryan's gift was Luka's absolute favorite:
He loves that little dump truck. He couldn't have cared less about any of the other toys. In fact, Hazel ended up playing with most of them. He wasn't really interested in the cake either. He poked at it a few times, and took a couple of bites. But, when Hazel turned one, she was elbow-deep in cake. Luka? Not so much. After a couple of bites, he tried to toss the cake onto the floor. I took it as a sign that he was done.
In other news...look at this yumminess that has landed in my kitchen:
I have wanted a stand mixer for, oh, FOREVER. Every year, for Christmas, I have asked Bryan for one. He never understood why I would want some $300 kitchen appliance. Finally, my Dad and step-mom got me one, and at a total steal. Home Depot (or was it Lowe's?) printed an error in one of their sale ads, and listed the price on these Kitchen Aid mixers WAY lower than it was supposed to be. And, since it was their fault, they had to honor the ad if someone brought it into the store. So, now this little baby is mine! And, it's turquoise! You have no idea how hard it is to find turquoise things for my kitchen that is done in turquoise, orange and brown. Thank you so much, Dad and Carol! Having this delivered today totally made my day!
Happy birthday to my little man!
