Outside Play

Here are a few shots of Daddy and Luke enjoying the great out of doors. They were making hot dogs for our supper. :)


Luke was pretty happy to be "helping" Daddy.



Pointing at the grill, the most awesomest of "man machines." He was pretty thrilled.

Spontaneous hugs for Daddy. That was just precious.



Daddy is trying to teach him right, with a CFL football. :)

Still not sure about this grass stuff...

He LOVES being outside. I see a summer full of fun. I really want to get him a little baby pool and sandbox. I think he would have a good time. Today he was "helping" us garden. He really thinks it's fun to dig with the little spade. Love him!

Great Pappaw

Andrew, Luke and I headed to Huntington a few weeks ago to see my grandparents. Unfortunately I didn't get many pictures. We will have to go back. :) But, here is a picture of Luke and I with my dad's dad.


It was so good to see all three of my grandparents. I hadn't seen them since Luke was 8 weeks old and even then it was a quick trip (without Andrew) for my Aunt Mindy's funeral. I want to be more purposeful about visiting our grandparents. I'm already looking forward to another H-town trip or two this summer for reunions. :) And then, in August it will be time to visit with our Canadian grandparents and I'm really looking forward to that, too. :)

Long Hiatus... Plus a video.

I realize that I tend to blog in fits and starts. Well, here's another start. :) It's been an eventful month. I just downloaded the pictures from the camera and realized there were pics from Andrew's birthday. On the 11th of April. Oops. I haven't taken many pictures at all since then. So I shall endeavour to be better. Or something.

Anyway, today I decided to be proactive and take a few pictures. Here is a video of Luke saying a few of his words. His vocabulary seems to have simply taken off in the last two to three weeks. It's crazy. He has become a lot more vocal. Including mastering screeching. Yay. But, some of my favourites are "mumma," "dada" (although this comes out as "nana" and I think it's adorable!), "cheese," and "milk." He's just awfully fun these days. Even as I type he's running around the family room yelling and babbling.

I shot a quick video of him showing off a few of his words just a few minutes ago and thought I'd share. He was just sitting there saying "da da da da da" and so that proves that he can say "dada" but he still calls Andrew "nana." It makes me smile. I'll be putting up a few pictures eventually, but for now, here's our little guy.

Helping with the Budget

I've taken to getting my grocery budget for the month out in cash lately as it helps me stay on track. I guess I should learn to store it in a slightly safer place in the future. A month or two ago I found my son thus:


Before he knew I was there...



He looks entirely too pleased with himself.

So this is money... Hmmm...

Of course, being the mommy that I am, I did grab the camera before telling him that was not his business. :) He's a sweet boy and I love him. Maybe he'll take me out to lunch?
