schma schmatest. . .

Or, the latest (in Schmuzzish. . .we watch The Upside Down Show during breakfast everyday. . .and Jack and I are determined to learn to speak the Schmuzzies language).

Sunday we had sgabetty (Lukanese: spaghetti) for dinner. And we all sat at the table at the same time. Amazing. And fun.

Max is growing taller day by day, I swear. Those legs just get longer and longer. Sam and I keep telling Jack that he is eventually going to be taller than the house (ala Clifford) . . . and I'm beginning to believe it.

Max loves to race from the entry way into the living room and leap into my lap (when I'm on the couch). I absolutely love it. And am determined not to have a dog (especially his size) who thinks the couch belongs to him. . . oh well. . .

Luke adores Max. Chasing him around the house calling Come here, Max! Wanting to throw toys for him (sometimes right to his face. . .oops! we're working on that one). Laying on the floor on his belly watching his every movement. . .laughing hysterically.

Pap Pap will be here twice this week. . . Once yesterday (so I could volunteer in Jack's classroom) and once today (so I can get root canal #3. . .ugh. . .). Yesterday it was Eat n Park cookies. . . Today, it's ice cream. . .

Luke loves:

playing with battery operated Percy on the train track. . .especially watching him fall of the track (and just letting him run and run. . .I should count how many times I've said help Percy in the last week. . .I swear he's going to burn out the motor. . .but it never
does. . .)

playing with Lightning MacQueen and Mac the Truck. . .

going outside to swing

singing little songs and repeating little stories to himself as he plays (love it!)

reading Ain't Gonna Paint no More; Up, Up, Down; A Was Once an Apple Pie; Yankee Doodle; Ten Apples up on Top
