Lucas is 18 months old!

Lucas your are 18 months old! Where has the time gone. You are wearing 18 month size clothes. Size 5 diapers. You are talking like crazy. Of course there are only a few words we understand. One word that we know you are certain of is "Daddy!" You are also saying "ball, John, Aex for Alex, cookie, up, down, hey, bye, night and Mommy" - sometimes. You love your Daddy and you love being outside with him working on the Mustang. I thought it was most appropriate to include these pictures of you with Daddy and the car. We love you Lukie, you continue to be our light.

Lucas is 12 months old!

One year ago today the Lord gave me a very special gift! A sweet, precious gift. I prayed for you for a while before you were born and what a blessing you have been. In a very difficult year you have brought me more joy than I could ever imagine. Your name means light and that's just what you have given me!

You are wearing size 12 months clothes now. You weigh 20 pounds and wear size 4 diapers. You finally got your first tooth! And about 5 days later your 2nd one came in, too. You have taken about 3 steps 2 different times. I wonder if you will be walking by Christmas if not before!! You still say "hey", "da da", and today you said "bye". You also say "AHH" which I think is your way of saying Alex. You are precious to all of us. You adore your big brothers and absolutely idolize your Daddy! We all love you more than we could have ever imagined.
We leave for Disney World in 2 weeks and I can't wait to see what you think! It will be something to have a 1 year old at Disney I am sure.
Love you, my Lukie! You are such a blessing!

Lucas is 11 months old!

Lucas you are 11 months old! You are almost 20lbs! You are wearing mostly 12 month clothes now and size 4 diapers. You are pulling up on everything. You are eating table food for the most part. You really did not like the stage 3 baby food. You say "hey" "da da". You wave at us all the time. You like to dance, too. You are still in awe of your big brothers and quite honestly they are still in awe of you. It's such a joy to watch you interact with them. You are the light of my life right now!

First Day of School

Finally, school has begun! It was a long summer for us. The boys were ready to begin today. On the way to school we saw a beautiful rainbow reminding us of God's promises. I think it's going to be an amazing year, God is good all the time.

My precious John is in the 5th grade. We are going to enjoy all that this last year of elementary school will bring!

Sweet Alex begins first grade this year. He is excited to learn to read. He was so pleased to get the teacher he wanted. We look forward to all that he will learn and how much he will change.

Secretly they really do like each other....

And they love their little brother...and he adores them both!

Hoping you both have an awesome year. Love you!

Lucas is 9 months old!

You are 9 months old. You are babbling like crazy. The only thing we can make sense of is "Hey der (Hey there)" and "Da Da". You really love to tease Mommy when I tell you to say "Ma Ma" you laugh and either say Da Da or just give me a really big grin. You love your brothers and now that the weather has cooled off some we have enjoyed going to some baseball practices to watch them. You are wearing size 4 diapers now. You are still in your 6-9 month clothes mostly. You have worn a few 12month clothes. You are now pulling up on everything and are so proud of yourself when you do. You still have NO teeth. You love to eat your baby food and still enjoy your bottles as well. You have the most precious disposition and are happy just about all the time. You sleep from about 9pm - 7am every night (hope that continues!). We love you very much, Lukie. I know one of these days your gonna say, 'stop calling me Lukie!'
