This week's theme for You Capture was photographer's choice. I've been pretty blah about taking photos lately, mainly because I have no batteries in my camera and have been too lazy to get new batteries. Also, I had a root canal last Tuesday and spent the rest of the week holding the side of my face, whining, and taking pain killers plus antibiotics because my face was swollen. It was SUPER.
Luckily, I still managed to get a few decent shots with my phone, so it hasn't been a total loss!
What better subject for photographer's choice than my favorite little guy to photograph?
Even though he's my favorite, he's recently decided that sleeping is lame, after spending his entire life being a great sleeper. The fact that this is horrible timing for such a decision is a whooooole post for a different time, but it's resulted in him doing cute things like falling asleep in the car, which he hasn't done in forever.
We've been trying to do a lot of Luke things before the baby comes, so we took him to his favorite train restaurant. He was such a good boy and sat and ate first, but he could hardly sit still when his food came out on a TRAIN. I mean, can you blame him? I'd like a train to deliver my food every night, too.
Funny story about Luke. One of his first words was tootle, after the Little Golden Book Tootle because we read it eleventy-zillion times when he was a baby. As such, even though he knows that trains are trains and he knows the name of every Thomas the Tank engine (seriously, even the ridiculous names like Skarloey), he still mostly calls trains Tootles. Isn't that cute? I think so.
After he ate his cheese sandwich and mommy ate most of his chips (I had to balance out my salad), he very seriously pressed buttons on the model train set for somewhere around an hour.
And just for fun, here's one of me. Last Friday, I got to spend a day at the spa, thanks to gift cards from my wonderful husband and Leah. I had a massage, facial, pedicure, and a hair conditioning/style. The result was totally awesome hair and glowing skin, which I wish I could replicate daily, but sadly am not independently wealthy.
