Crazy Times

"It seems it's always the crazy times. You'll find you'll wake up and realize..."

Life has certainly been crazy lately. It's hard to believe that we're moving in just five short days. Luke and I have been downstairs going through clothes. I am happy to say that in that brief excursion and the four boxes we went through, three of those boxes are being donated. Yay for more space! Luke enjoyed grabbing anything within his reach (he was in the sling) and was pretty impressed when I introduced him to my old pal Benjamin Bear. I wish I had his reaction on camera. It was pretty cute. He also enjoying playing with a fabric bow that came with one of the beautiful bouquets of flowers that Andrew sent me while we were engaged.

Also, today is Luke's nine-month.... er, month day? Well, he's nine months old today! It's hard to believe that he's already that old. Before we know it, we'll be celebrating his 1st birthday. In a new house. Yikes. He's a great kid, and we're blessed to have him. I can't wait to see what things he will learn this month. I'd love to list all the things he has mastered over the last month, but I don't have time! Although, he's almost to pulling up, he currently wobbles on one knee while trying to get his other foot under him. Too cute. He's very efficient at crawling around (still army crawl, I wonder if he'll ever "really" crawl?) and sitting up and getting back down, etc. And, my favourite new acquisition was when he began to sign "more" last week on Mum Mackay's birthday (also known as Boxing Day, or the day after Christmas). We were pretty excited over that. I'm hoping to have a video of it up sometime, but probably not soon. I am not planning on blogging much at all for the next weeks, so don't be dissapointed at the lack of posts.

Anyway, so much for getting things done during nap time. I hear a baby who just knocked (threw?) his soother out of his crib. There went the other one...

Luke Hates Packing

I'd say this about sums it up... :)

Luke cries every time I tape a box shut. Maybe he's telling us he want's to stay here? Mean old Mommy actually set it up so that I could get this face on camera. Of course, when I did, I felt SO guilty... It's bad enough making him cry when I need to. Anyway I hope he gets used to the sound of tape. I think it just scares him. Of course, he's afraid of the vacuum too. Maybe because he's only seen it a few times in his life? That's like the mom who realized she simply doesn't vacuum enough when her two year old sees her vacuuming and excitedly asks, "Is Grandma coming over?"

First Blood

This was a while back when Luke was still shaky at sitting up. He wiped out and we saw our first blood. He was so sad... It was only a few drops, but I'm sure it seemed like more to him!

Luke thought nGogo was soooo funny! Peek-a-boo is such a neat game.

Where'd she go?

Where's Lukey?

There he is!

This is hilarious.

NGogo is too much fun! Thanks for playing!

These pictures were taken a little more than a month ago... but they're so darn cute! Abe and Luke showed up to the church meeting one Sunday in matching clothes. Fortunately I had the camera.

Two very sweet little boys. You can visit Abe and his siblings here.
