Mr. Polite

Lucas has learned to say "Thank you!" On Monday I though I had heard him say it but I wasn't sure. Yesterday, it was all he said. So here is a video of Mr. Polite.

No more baby....

So the last few days have definitely proved that Lucas is no longer a baby. He is a full blown toddler and proud of it. In out dining room I have this make-shift pantry where I keep a lot of the food storage cans that my mom and mother-in-law gave me. Well, Lucas likes to go in it and play with the cans. A couple of weeks ago Lucas went into the pantry and pulled out a can of dried celery and spilled it all over the floor. That wasn't so bad. I cleaned it up but ofcourse did nothing to remove them from his grasp. Yesterday, while I was at work I got a call from Sean and he was very upset. While Sean was making dinner Lucas got into the pantry and opened a can of wheat gluten and dumped the whole can all over the dinning room floor (we have carpet). He then proceeded to roll in it, inhale it, eat it and dump dried celery on top of it. Needless to say our house is completely covered in wheat gluten and our vacuum cleaner is pretty much useless.
Then today I was up early because I had to write a talk for church. I had finished and went to print it. The paper kept jamming and jamming. All of a sudden a magnet fell out of the printer. We bought Lucas this book where it comes with magnets you stick on it. It was one of those magnets. My guess is Lucas saw an opening and took the initiative to stick his toys into it. Good thing it wasn't a peanut and butter sandwich. I think my life now is just damage control. My crazy little child is everywhere. But he is definitely the highlight and stress of my life.
