Happy Halloween

Today was Luke's 1st Halloween. He didn't really know what was going on, but he dressed up anyways! He was the cutest little sock monkey. He didn't go trick or treating since he didn't really understand, but we did go to a Halloween party at a friend's house. She had it decorated so neat and had a lot of cool games for the kiddos to play. Luke's favorite thing was the bounce house. He loved, loved, LOVED it!! Thanks Molly for having such a great party!!!

Birthday Time!

I can't believe that next Monday my baby will be 1 year old!!! Luke will turn 1 on Nov. 2, but we are having his party on Sat., Nov. 7, so family from Okla can come down and celebrate with us. I wanted to share his invitation with you! I worked hard on it and think it turned out really cute!!!

Busy, Busy...

We have been so busy the last few days! Memaw and Grandpa made it in on Thursday afternoon. Luke was so happy to see them (and so was Mommy!). He just looked at them both, back and forth. Then, he put his arms out and went to Grandpa! He then decided to go back and forth between Memaw and Grandpa and give out a few kisses as he was doing going. Here is Luke with Memaw and Grandpa...
On Saturday was the Fall Carnival at Mommy's school. Luke wore his Halloween costume (a sock monkey!!!) for a little while, but it was too hot to keep it on long! Luke played a few games and saw a few animals at the petting zoo. His favorite part of the whole night was eating his first sucker....he loved it...and made quite a mess!!This afternoon we went back to the Petting Farm/Pumpkin Patch that we went to a few weeks ago. This time it wasn't muddy and Luke could walk!! Luke is not afraid of animals at all...he loved to touch/pet them! Luke even got to ride on the "wild" hay ride this time!

Yep, Luke has bronchitis! He woke up at 4:15 AM with a high fever and was warm all over. I gave him motrin and got the temp. down, but he also had a horrible cough and rough breathing. Other than that, he has been acting normal...eating, walking all over, playing, and laughing. We got an appointment this morning to see Dr. Hunke and he said his ears looked good and so did his throat, but he could hear some rattling in his lungs. So....bronchitis is the diagnosis!! Luke has some medicine to take for the next 4 days and I think I'm going to go and get some Robitussin to help with his cough. He starts to cry everytime he coughs...poor thing. I hope he gets over this quickly....he has to be well when Memaw and Grandpa get here this weekend!!!
Here he is waiting on Dr. Hunke to come in and see him!

Luke is WALKING!!! Saturday night he let go of the recliner and walked all the way to the kitchen gate...which is quite a little walk for someone who hasn't taken more than about 5 steps! I about fell of the couch...I couldn't believe it!!! I went to get his bottle a little while later and watched, he did it again! On Sunday, he would try to walk...A LOT...but, would fall after a few steps. But, still, this was progress. Before he never wanted to let go and TRY! Today, he must have really watched the girls at the babysitters and decided that he could do it, too! We came home and he has been walking everywhere. And...I finally got it on video. Please ignore the toys and all of the things stacked up around the fireplace (Luke is a climber and I have to block it somehow!). This was the best and longest video that I got of him earlier. He walked from the recliner to the couch (for a break) and then walked to his room. Enjoy!!!

Woody Woodpecker

Luke loves to laugh! He has recently started laughing sorta like Woody Woodpecker. It's hilarious. He knows it makes people laugh, so when he gets attention for it, he keeps going! This afternoon I just happened to catch him doing it and he kept doing it while I recorded him. At the end he burped (you can't really hear it on here), which is why I started laughing!!

Boomer Sooner!

Today is the Red River Shootout...I can't wait for the day when I can take Luke to the Cotton Bowl! We will eat a some corndogs and funnel cakes and then watch some Sooner Football!! Until that day...we will continue watching it at home and cheering our beloved Sooners on. Here are a few pictures of Luke this morning getting ready for the game.

Getting ready before breakfast!

I like this book!

And for all of you Horn is a picture that Luke's babysitter took a few weeks ago. I can't believe she could do this to my sweet baby!'s upside down on purpose!!Also, Luke knows the word "touchdown" and he knows how to put his hands up in the touchdown signal. It's hilarious!! But, of course, when I get out the camera to video it, he won't do it.

Pumpkin Patch

Today Mommy didn't have to work, so she decided to take Luke to the Green Meadows Farm/Pumpkin Patch!! It was very dreary looking outside and VERY muddy!! Thankfully, it wasn't very cold and it didn't rain while we were there. Luke had a good time looking at all of the animals and even tried to pet a few of them! He was laughing and talking away in his stroller!!
Is this where you're going to take me today?!?!?

Come here donkey...let me pet you!!

WOW...a buffalo!

I WANT to pet you!!

I think I want this one!!

Mommy and Luke at the Pumpkin Patch!

Weekend in Oklahoma

This weekend Luke and I took off early Friday and headed to Oklahoma....for the big Central High Homecoming!! My dear friend Sonya's oldest was a homecoming candidate, so we went to support her and see her in her beautiful dress. Luke also got to see lots of mommy's old friends and teachers. Such an exciting night....and the Bronchos won!!
Sonya & KimberKimber, Mommy and Luke

& Mr. Too Cool Gotta Wear My Shades At Night!!

On Saturday, we mostly hung out at Aunt Heather's. We did go out and surprise Luke's Great Grandma. She had no idea we were coming to town and was very surprised to see us walk through the door! Aunt Sue and Lacie also came to Grandma's to see Luke (and Aunt Pam just happened to show up!). Aunt Sue was determined to get Luke to walk. The only thing she got, was Luke mad! He didn't want to walk and finally started puckering up and crying!!! But, Luke did have fun playing with Lacie. We left Grandma's so we could go home and watch the OU game. Unfortunately (or fortunately), I only got to see the first half....Luke wouldn't go to sleep, so I layed down in bed with him and we both fell asleep!!! I woke up to find out OU had lost by 1. Darn!

Just hanging out on Aunt Heather's counter
while she's giving me some yummy grapes!

Ewww...that one was sour!!

Here is a funny video of Luke and Aunt Heather. She was bouncing him on her leg and he thought it was hilarious! He would start to bounce on his own so she would do it again. He finally stood up in front of her and would start jumping!!!

Luke and I met another dear friend, Beth for brunch at Cracker Barrell before we headed back to Texas. It was so good to see her and spend a little time catching up! Luke was being silly and trying to get Beth to laugh at him!Beth & LukeI sure do miss ALL of my Oklahoma friends!!! Thank you everyone for a GREAT WEEKEND!! Now, it's time for everyone to come to Dallas and visit us!!
