he has joined the ranks of kids everywhere...

Luke loves cheerios :) he's been eating them for a couple weeks now (and i love them too, they are sure handy for the car!!) (in the picture he's eating pieces of carrot)

last week was my birthday...

... i'm old :) you gotta love Luke's smile in this picture - i think he thought he was going to get some of my bundt cake and chocolate frosting! sorry buddy, not yet - but you got mama's milk later so i bet you got a little taste of it :)

Luke loves food - we just give him real food - nothing out of a jar for him!! so, here are a picture of some of his beet-eating :)

my mom ("Nana") had just walked in the kitchen, and Luke got very excited to see her!! If you look on his tray, there are bits of cooked carrot too... he likes to use the beets as glue on his finger to pick up the carrots!

needless to say... beets are usually only eaten at dinner time, on nights when he's getting a bath!!

especially for Auntie Claire

Auntie Claire sent Luke his first birthday present a bit early... he asked us very nicely if he could open it... we couldn't say no! it was a very cute caterpiller to accompany the book "the very hungry caterpiller" Yippee!! we didn't have this book and it has quickly become a favorite - along with the toy!! Thank you Auntie Claire!!

Luke's 11 month birthday

it snowed for Luke's 11 month birthday last week :)
so, i took some pictures - they aren't the best, but you get the idea... there was a lot more that came down too, and it stuck!! it was neat, cause i got to watch it out the window while Luke was nursing and napping (on my lap - the first born is definitely well-loved!)

just another "living in the country" post

so, i have a very adorable 10 month old
he loves to crawl
and get into everything
and put things in his mouth

guess what i found when vacuuming tonight...
a live scorpion
on our floor

hmm, must watch the child even closer now!
(there goes any attempt at getting things done during the day!! but i definitely think spending quality time with Luke is more fun anyway :) )
