Brothers, Bath & Baptism

A bath with Luke wouldn’t be
complete without an attempt at baptism.

Divine Cupcake

Luke climbed into the chair,
opened my bible and said,
“I’m just going to see where it says
you have to get me a cupcake.”

At least he knows where to go for answers.

Laughing and Baptizing

No one can make Nolan
laugh like Luke can.
In fact, Luke was the first thing
Nolan ever laughed at.

In exchange for the good laughs,
Nolan lets Luke practice baptizing on him*.

*Disclaimer: If you are within sprinting distance of Luke you may be a target for baptism. If he asks you if you believe in heaven or Jesus Christ he is going to baptize you. Or he may just say “In the name of the Father and Holy Spirit I baptize you” and push you over.**

**Don’t fret about out biblical theology. We do talk to him about why people get baptized, Jesus dying on the cross for us, and repenting and believing.

Belly Eating

Umo Nader.
Happy to indulge his nephew
with belly eating tickles.

Adorable to witness…
belly eating laughter
a pause
asking for more
belly eating laughter
a pause
asking for more
and so on and on and on.

Dreamy Smiles

We were on our way
to Baltimore.
Port Discovery to be specific.
Bob the Builder exhibit to be precise.
My onetruelove and I
are all about
making kid’s dreams come true.

Check out the dream come true smiles.

In a bubble

Bouncy House

Good to have the stroller.

A train.
Dreamy for this little boy.

Dream come true expedition quickly
transitioned to nightmare at lunch.
I’m formulating some sort of proclamation
Regarding dining out with two small children.
Something along the lines of
until smallest child is 1.5
eating out hours fit kid schedules.
But maybe not even then.

Market Night

Luke and I steal away
on Friday nights to raid
our Farmer’s Market.

Last weekend there was
one of those scary traveling
carnival spectacles.
This ride.
As we were leaving it was
starting up.
It creaked and moaned
and metal grinded against metal.
There were a few people on it
And I wonder what they thought
as that thing started up.
