I laughed so hard...

This is a wonderful shot of my little boy laughing so hard that you almost can't tell if he's laughing or crying. The hint? It's all in the eyes (or les yeux as the french would say). Those are most definitely happy eyes. I wish I had an example of grumpy eyes to contrast it with. Maybe next time.

Go Leafs

Here is our little Maple Leafs fan in his Leafs attire. We found the sweatshirt when we were in Canada this past summer, which was awesome. Then, not to be outdone by Uncle Will's Mountaineer hat gift, Uncle Jonny picked up a Toronto Maple Leafs hat for the little guy. He seems pretty happy with the addition. Enjoy! I had a hard time getting him to sit still so we could actually see the hat. Crazy baby. He kept looking up and grinning at me. :) I guess I shouldn't complain about that!

We all love a good hockey match around here. My personal favourite is when the Pens play the Leafs. That way we have a good family rivalry going on! :) You'll notice... well, actually, you won't, cause it's cut off. Anyway, the bottom of his sweatshirt says "Just like Dad." Which is really cute. Now to get Luke some Penguins paraphernalia....

About a month ago a bunch of our friends and family went out to the pumpkin patch to select pumpkins for fall, take a tractor ride, play in a huge box of corn, etc. We decided not to go, but I was sad for the missed photo op. So, I went to Walmart and bought a couple of pumpkins and headed home for our own fall photo shoot in our front yard. I think we got some keepers. These are a few of the ones I like... It was hard to not put fifty pictures for this post. There were so many that I liked.

Our happy baby.

Hmmm... these look delicious!

A hand from above... coming to spoil the fun.

"No, no, Lukey. We don't eat leaves!"

I think he missed the point of the above lecture...

Poser. (That's Poser... not Hoser. In case anyone was wondering.)

Contemplating fall... and whether or not he can eat any more leaves.

He was very happy just to be out on the grass. Such a sweet boy!

This one is our favourite. He was just having a really good time.

Luke is a sweet heart! I think I love him a little more every day. He's learning, growing, and changing so quickly now. It's crazy how fast he can get into things! Plus, I don't like the fact that the fronts of whatever outfit he happens to be wearing are always dirty now. Is it possible to keep your floors clean enough that that doesn't happen??? (Those extra question marks were for Andrew. He does love it when people add unnecessary punctuation. I'm sure Gramma loves it, too!)

Seven Months Old

Well, our little boy is seven months old. How crazy is that? In the last weeks we've had so much fun. He's a joy to be around... if an active joy. :) A couple of weeks ago he fell forward from his still wobbly sitting position and busted his mouth. I don't think it would have been so bad if his soother hadn't been in his mouth. As it was, we saw the first blood from this little guy. It wasn't much, but his face was SO sad. He recovered quickly, but had a red mark around his mouth from his soother for a day or two. Poor baby.

Another first this week is squash! He wasn't sure what to make of it at first, but now seems to think it's wonderful! Daddy doesn't like what it does to his diapers, though!

Anyway, I'm planning to get some pictures up within the next few days. It's been a little crazy with computer issues. I have some cute fall pics as well as some especially for Uncle Jonny. :)

I'm off to play with a baby!
