All of this old uneventful information to make room for the event of the week… Luke’s first birthday! I can’t believe a year has flown by. Luke has started standing on his own quite a bit, but hasn’t taken any steps. He’s talking up a storm, but hasn’t said any words that I know of. Just mama and dada, and possibly one time dog and one time boo. I guess the biggest thing that has changed is Luke’s diet. He’s eating most of what we eat and loves waffles, peaches, and green beans. He’s starting to “chill” a little bit, and will sometimes just hang out in our laps for a minute instead of squirming away. His bedtime has pretty much been bumped to 8:00. He usually sleeps through the night, but lately has been having some incidents, and I think it’s just a combination of constantly cutting teeth (he’s up to 11) and switching over to milk and different foods.
I absolutely LOVE this picture. He was wearing my shades (usually he won’t wear any sunglasses) and right before I took the picture he pointed at me :)
someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed… and mean Mommy is taking pictures!
Yesterday I watched my girlfriend Sarah’s two girls Katie and Claire. Katie will be 3 next month and Claire will be 2 in December. They were incredibly well behaved, but even with them being sweet and amazing, it was not an easy day! It was exhausting!!! I love those girls so much, and I was so happy to have them all to myself all day.
Katie reading a story
Katie calls this blanket her “guy.” Don’t know where she came up with that. He replaced her kitty, who she left in Mommy’s car. Thankfully “guy” was an okay replacement.
