Greg and I got married in 2007 and never knew how incomplete our lives were until our Little Man came along in March 2011. Now the adventures are neverending and we went from just being a couple to being complete as a family!

 

Luke made it to get his cupcake reward tonight!! Still making small progress but not too shabby since Friday :) Yay Luke!!!

It’s very much a work in progress but we are still very proud of our little man this week. He has done awesome and definitely deserved his ice cream tonight!! Now if we could just get him to understand that he needs to use the potty everywhere and not just at his house. Like I said, work in progress. Lol!!

Today was a bittersweet moment for this mama. Greg and I gave Luke his “big boy” room for his birthday (which was done a week early). His room went from the sweet giraffe nursery to this awesome Cars big boy room complete with Cars bed. I was a blubbering idiot while taking apart his crib/toddler bed yesterday but so excited today while putting together all the final touches of the room. It turned out exactly the way we wanted and he is SOOOO excited!!! I cannot believe this time next week he will be 3 years old! 😭

I had to post another one because….well why not? He said he wanted to dress like Garth Brooks again so this is the look we went for today.

Luke playing while I attempt to work upstairs on our rooms. Needless to say his cuteness (and my sniffles from my lingering “crud”) keep distracting me.

Luke is giving Garth Brooks a run for his money!!! He is in love with Garth and calls him “the hat”. Now he is impersonating him!

Snow day. Neither one of us feel 100% up to par but we couldn’t miss the chance to play in the snow for the first time and it was a definite success!!

As 2013 comes to a close I can’t help but be a little grateful it is over. It has been a rough year in a lot of different ways but I am also blessed in so many ways too. God has answered a lot of prayers for my whole family this year and as I sit here and look at these pictures I am reminded of all the fun we have had and that helps make up for the scary and sad times. Now let’s bring on 2014 and make it even better!!!

Watching “Elf on the Shelf” for the third time today. Luke loves Jeff, his elf. And yes, he named him all by himself :) Have I mentioned how much fun Christmas is this year??
