The Next Lionel Messi

Well… not yet.

For those who are completely blinded by the soccer world, Lionel Messi is the best soccer player in the entire world. Only one person can possibly beat him and thats #2. Christiano Ronaldo. Although I am a strong supporter of Thiago Silva of Brazil, I’d much prefer Luka to be the next Messi.

Any soccer player would do though. 🙂

So now that Luka is feeling oh so super duper, we had to get some exercise. The best way to do that? Teach my little soccer-star-to-be how to play soccer! Lately all he’s been interested in doing is playing cars and going to the beach, and the only way he’ll even look at a soccer ball is if its covered in pancakes. So a couple days ago we went outside and I threw some balls down and had him kick it in the mini-goal I bought for him. Sadly to say, he didn’t get any of them in the goal… that he kicked. He got frustrated so he decided it was easier to carry them and place them in the goal. He also isn’t the most coordinated little tyke so he fell on his butt a lot as he went to kick it.

Hey, he has a long way to go till he measures up to Messi, but for now, I think he’s the best in the
world.

Can you guys see his little tongue sticking out?

So some other stuff in the past week has been… wait for it… THE BIG BOY BED! Luka has successfully transferred from a crib, to his new train bed! He still wakes up twice a night and comes to get me, and he still wakes up at 6am, but it was so nice to get rid of the crib. Luka kept asking “where was it going, is it coming back, who will take care of my crib?” and I answered him with, “Lucas, you’ve outgrown your crib. You’re too big, so your crib has to go help new babies who need a soft crib to sleep in.” He wasn’t too concerned because he said okay and walked away.

But other than that, he’s getting much better at talking and I can tell his development is slowly coming along. He tries to dress himself, he’s holding silverware most of the time when he eats, and he just looooooves sweeping the floor with a broom and dustpan. Things he could never do before!!
