Just go with it

Aside from his love for shirts and sweatshirts in kelly green, Luke doesn't really care about what he's wearing. I lay out his clothes each morning, and he takes his time putting them on... usually commenting more about his underwear for the day than the clothes people will actually see. He has never expressed any interest in picking out his shirt or pants.

Over the past couple weeks, he has started to develop his own fashion sense. Not pants, not shirts, not shoes or socks. Accessories. Hats, glasses, backpacks, and the like. His favorite combination is the Spiderman goggles that we bought for the pool this summer, and the New York Yankees hat that Papa picked up from Yankee Stadium.

This combination is so special to Luke that it sleeps (together) on the post of his bed closest to his head. This morning he got up, got dressed, and put his beloved hat and goggle combo on. He proceeded to play in his room with Matthew for about an hour. The goggles never came off. I don't think it matters to him if he can see well out the goggles or not. He's just happy to have made a choice about what he wears, and thrilled that no one makes him take them off. Seems like a pretty good self-esteem-building moment to me.
