Mommy group

Lucas attended his first play group today. I don't have any pictures because i didn't want to be that crazy mom with the camera. but I'll sneak some in at a later date. He played with a little girl who was 9 months old. They played well together. but spent the first probably 15 minutes just staring at each other. It was pretty cute. I was pretty surprised with how well he shared.

Swimming Like a Champ

video video
The title and video's say it all, I will just add he has been loving the water. We take him a couple times a week and swim for 45 min or so. he figured out to move his arm by the third time in the water. yesterday we dunked him and he did hold his breath ... we didn't tape that part. it was so hard to stick him underwater. but he handled it well. Swimming lessons for babies start in march and we plan to attend.

6 Months!!!




Lucas went in for his 6 month check up today and it went just fine. he is still up in the 97th percentile. the doc's must have had some errors measuring him though because his height was off. so no big deal. he weighed 22 lbs and 13 oz. and his head measured at 18 inches. We didn't do much just hung out, took a few pic's and had the app. I just can't believe he is already 6 months old!

He's ready to chew!

We've got our second tooth! It's showed it's self right next to the first one on the bottom row. Still no pictures. He is handling it very well. getting up a few times at night but nothing to major. I can't wait to see his toothy smile!

Pass the Peas Please...






Well i don't usually let Lucas play with his food, but this was his first time in his new high chair so i couldn't resist letting him goof a little. he really enjoyed holding his own spoon. how ever the peas in his eyes not so much. anyway it was a fun evening and made for some good pictures. I had to post them all cause i couldn't narrow it down i just loved them all.

Don't pee in the pool!





We took Lucas to the YMCA today to go for a swim. He did very well in the water and seemed to really enjoy him self. We were the only people in the pool. we were all over the place swimming and swimming. Unfortunately our camera didn't want to take pictures with the lighting in there so these photos are pretty bad. But you can get the idea. after swimming for about 30 min we came home and Lucas had his lunch time bottle and fell asleep while i was burping him, he was worn out! We are going to try to take him every weekend to swim so maybe there will be some better photos later.

I Found a Tooth!!

I found what i thought was Lucas's first tooth yesterday and it was confirmed this morning! He has the start of his lower left tooth sticking out of his gums. I thought he had been a little grumpy but i figred it was from our recent traveling. I'm assuming now it must be the tooth. He has been haddeling it pretty well so far. When it is sticking out far enough to see with a camera i will post a picture.

It's a New Year!

Lucas is doing great! We just got home from our 3 week visit in Eugene On the 30th and spent new years at home relaxing. Lucas rolled over for the first time on the 31st and did it again today. I'm glad that milestone has passed! Now we just have to keep working on it. He has eaten Sweet potatoes, bananas, carrots, squash, apple sauce, and peas. He didn't like the bananas or apples so we'll see if he changes his mind later. His dexterity has gotten so good, he is able to pick things up when he wants them and get them directly to his mouth which is always where they go first. He loves his puppies and tries to "pet" them when ever he can. I can't believe ho fast this year has gone by, it's been an amazing one and I'm so thankful that Lucas is part of my life.
