Just Like Daddy

Luke is definately enjoying having his Daddy home again. Work is slow so Daddy also is getting to spend lots of time with him and that is great! I have read that toddlers start identifying with the same sex parent and I can see that starting to happen. Luke is now copying what JW does and follows him around more and more. Very cute and also it takes a little pressure off of Mommy! haha Luke waves byebye to me when JW is reading him a book before bed as if to say, "Okay, Mom I don't need you here anymore. Buh-bye!" I hope as Luke grows older and (sorry to say it honey) JW does too, that they find things they both enjoy doing and genuinely like spending time together. Here are some nice quotes I found about fathers:

"He didn't tell me how to live; He lived, and let me watch him do it." -Clarence Budington Kelland

'In the baby lies the future of the world.
Mother must hold the baby close
so that the baby knows it is his world
but the father must take him to the highest hill
so that he can see what his world is like.'
-Mayan Indian Proverb

"Being a great father is like shaving. No matter how good you shaved today, you have to do it again tomorrow."
-Reed Markham
