Look at Me!

I have been really bad in the past few weeks with posting (thanks to schools starting again!). So, I've tried to make up for it in the last few days! :) Today I bought Luke a new toy (can I just go to the store once without buying something for Luke???). There isn't a lot of room in the living room, but he tried it out anyways. I then decided to take it to the backyard, but it wouldn't push in the grass...so, we ended up in the drive way. Luke looks so funny walking around with the toy! I can't believe he will soon be walking without it!

After walking for a little bit, I decided to put Luke in his swing. He loves swinging...he cracks up laughing while he's swinging. He loves the outdoors. I think he would stay out there all day, if he could. Thankfully, today the weather isn't scorching and we could enjoy the outdoors for a little while.

Bath Time

Luke loves bath time! He loves playing with his rubber duckies (which of course, are sports duckies!) and he loves to splash! Today I bought him a "big boy" towel. He was getting way too big for the baby towel and I found the perfect one at Kohl's!
The "hood" is a "baseball hat"

The baseball is where you put your hand (when you're bigger, of course!)

9 Month Check-up

Yesterday was Luke's 9 Month Check-up. He did great! Luke now weighs 20 lbs 5 oz and is 28 1/2 inches long!!! And...as Dr. Hunke checked his teeth, his 8th tooth has finally broken through!!! Can you believe my little baby is so big and has so many teeth??? Dr. Hunke also said that I could start adding a little whole milk to his day....that means one less bottle of formula (he will get real milk with his breakfast!)!! I can't wait to get completly on whole milk and save the formula money!! Luke did have a little bit of a diaper rash that just appeared and the Dr. said it was a yeast rash, so he gave us a prescription for it. It already looks better this morning!! And....unfortunatley, we didn't get to go shot free this visit. :( Luke got his first flu shot (he has to go back in a month to get the other half). He did really good, though...he only cried for a few seconds! He also had an anemia test to check his blood. He scored high and there are no problems there!! I'm so thankful to have such a healthy and happy boy!
Here's Luke waiting at the Dr's office...

Busy, Busy, Busy

We've been so busy lately, that I haven't had time to post! And...there really hasn't been anything exciting to blog about! Luke is getting bigger and bigger everyday! And...SMARTER!! I think I have the smartest baby on Earth! It fascinates me how I can do something and he immediately imitates me. Here is a video of Luke putting the stacking rings on (sorry that it's sideways!)....

I will try to download a few pictures from the past couple of weeks to share with you soon! I'm off to go to bed...it's the 1st day of school tomorrow!

Hi Memaw!

We are counting the days until Memaw and Grandpa get back to Texas (the end of October)! We miss them very much!! :)

Play Date!

Today Luke and Mommy met a few friends and we went to the Children's Museum in Dallas. Luke had a great time playing with Sadie, Carson and Roman. We were all exhausted by the time we left and are hoping the kiddos sleep well tonight! Here are a few fun pictures... Luke under the BIG NOSE!!
My little Fireman!

Weekend

This past weekend was a busy one! On Thursday night, Luke went to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party. He had a blast riding some of the kiddie rides and eating pizza...yes, he did eat a little bit of pizza!On Friday morning, we got up and drove to Okla for the weekend. Friday night, Aunt Heather, Nicholas, Luke and Mommy went to visit Great Grandma and Aunt Sue. Thank you Aunt Sue for letting Luke go swimming in your pool (see the post below for a video of Luke swimming).
Just chillin' in the pool! I'm cool like that! :)
On Saturday, Luke went to see some of Mommy's long time friends (who are really family!). Luke had a great time swimming with Ashlee and Shane and all of the kids!! Thanks for letting us come and hang out!!
Then, we went to the Rodeo on Sat. night!!! Luke watched the first part of the rodeo and was even "yelling" during part of it. But, after awhile, he had had enough...and was ready to go! Actually, he was really tired and just wanted to go to bed. So, unfortunately, Mommy and Luke had to leave early. And...Mommy forgot to take the camera in to the rodeo...so, no pictures!
Here are just a few other pictures from the weekend...
Nicholas and Luke
Luke was getting ready for the rodeo...he was "riding" Nick! LOL

9 month pictures

Here are a few of my favorites!!

NO...it's not the hook 'em horns sign!
If you look...he has his thumb out...it's I ♥ U in sign language!


9 months old!!

Today Luke is 9 months old!!! I can't believe that 9 months ago I was holding a little 6 lb 6 oz baby boy in the hospital! He has definatley grown!! I'm not sure how much he weighs now, but I know that it is around 20 lbs. When he came home from the hospital, 0-3 month clothes were too big...now, he wears 12 month clothes!!!
Luke can now walk around everything, he loves to crawl into and under things, LOVES to shut his bedroom door, and loves to pull wires from the walls!!! Luke has also gotten a new tooth in the past month and has 2 more ready to come through! Here is his 9 month sock money pic...
