Mckensi took these pictures when me and Luke went up to visit her in parawon. she is so talented they all look so cute and they were just snap shots! anyways I think luke is just such a cute kid. here is a little update as to what he is doing
5 months he started sitting up
6 months he started army crawling, starts saying mamama
7 months. crawls very well on hands and knees. he started puling himself into a standing position and walking along everything, stops saying mamama completly and now he says dadadadada not to be confused with dad.
8 months starts blowing raspberrys on everything...( arms hands legs leather chairs) climbs the stairs at an alarming speed. holds his own bottle, crys when dad mom or grandma and grandpa leaves the room. has a little stranger anxiety. kicks legs super fast and attacks his blanket when you hand it to him hugging it to his face and chest. (if that makes sense). walks behind his toys that have wheels. crawls with his head down when he wants to go faster. is all over the place moving constantly. if he is awake he is moving... church is one of the most tiring activities of the week.
9 months. well he just turned nine months yesterday and has not acquired any knew skills. but we just love everything he does. he is so sweet and has the funniest personality he knows he is not supposed to climb the stairs so when he hears me coming after him he just squeels and climbs faster. I love being a mom to such a cute happy little boy.

I love you chris and am so happy I married you. your the best husband ever and I love being with you!

a couple of new things for our blog followers. first is about a month ago luke learned to sit up by himself he likes it alot but when he goes to reach for things in front of him he still face plants it. also he only 2 days ago learned to crawl!!! I know he is just sooo Smart... although he will only crawl if he is extremly motivated by something in front of him otherwise he wont. also I think layla looks like a retatrded dog in this picture and I laughed my head off when I saw her in the background.
last week me and Chris decided we wanted to go hike the subway... ok so chris decided he wanted to... i was a bit unsure about being able to finish it after a year of 0 activity. but after alot of reassurance from chris and three very awesome babysitters, my mom kensi and jaylee. ( yes we needed 3 babysitters because it was a 8 hour hike) we finally went! it was BEAUTIFUL!! I loved it. we got to repell and had to hike and swim through freezing water and I just cant say how awesome the firtst 5 hours were... they just flew by. then came the last 4 hours which were hiking out of the subway, it was miserable my toenails felt like they were gonna fall off so every step I wanted to cry. Chris had to carry this huge rope the whole hike so he was dead from the extra weight. needles to say when we finally made it back to the car we were exhausted! and the next 3 days we couldnt move, we would do rock paper scisors to see who would go up the stairs to get luke from his nap and such... very humurous but very painful. anyways we had a ton of fun and missed luke very much.

we had a fun 4th of july in nashville... it was on sunday so we didnt do alot of the usual 4th activities but we had a yummy bbq, and the city fire works were done in the open field rite ouside our back patio. luke slept through the whole thing even though it sounded like bombs were going off.... as for layla, she was terrified she hid in the closet and her kennel all night which kind of a big deal cause she hates her kennel and also hates not being tight next to us especially if we are outside. she was shaking for a day afterwords.
I have always wanted to see the room that Joseph was last in, ive seen all the pictures and couldnt wait to go in!.... dun dun dun luke did not want to! so half way through the tour me and chris had to leave with a screaming luke, I some times think he does these things on purpose! alas the building was beautiful but the room will have to be saved for another time... perhaps when my kids are grown.

So im not sure if you can see what that first picture is... so ill explain, we have a laundry closet just outside our bedroom door. this closet has to doors one that opens in the hall and one that opens in our room. with that explained I have luke sleep on my bed for his afternoon naps cause its super quiet in there. but I do have one problem.... layla.... shse is obsessed with trying to sleep by luke which is one of the reasons i moved him into my room from the couch. whenever I would leave the room even for a sec and come back in layla would be up cuddled next to luke looking at me with her ears back cause she knows she isnt supposed to and will get in trouble... yet she wont quit, its like a couple sec next to luke is worth getting smacked. anyways when i moved luke into my room i would leave the door open so I could hear him, but I could not keep layla out (she usually doesnt like our room cause thats where her kennel is) she is so loud with everything she does that i started shutting the door. she did not like this. unfortunatly she figured out that she can go through the luandry closet and push open the accordian door. now the only way to get her out while he's sleeping since i cant yell or make any noise to get her out, I have to lur her out with this ball she loves it. I think inspite of its annoyingness its super funny.

Is currently saleing for pinnacle in minneapolis and is on track to hit his goal by the end of the summer, just learned how to play farkle, and really enjoyed it. he is managing again this year and is doing really well, his guys are very motivated. and he is getting pretty far on the "impossible game" on his Iphone.
is getting super chubby and is always smiling now. whenever he wakes up from the night or just a nap he will just lay there and smile at me, he is also experimenting with his voice he loves the ooh and ahh sounds and is getting quite good at making them. he sleeps from 730 t0 6 in the morning and takes several naps during the day one of which is a 3 hour one. he loves his food and he can be perfectly happy but when he sees me getting his bottle ready he thinks he has to have now and will scream until the moment it touches his mouth and then silence. he doesnt like the car unless I sit back there with him. and he loves his baby bjourn.
can now button up my pants ( previously could not because it hurt my insision from the c section), my hair can deffinatly be described as long now. my favorite time of day is now 745 because I realize I have made it through another day of taking care of luke without any major mistakes... its like someone removes a huge load from my shoulders at 745. I no longer like rainy days. I have started running. im doing some research, every runner I talk to I say I cant run more than 1 mile and they're like " neither could I last month and now I run 12" so im seeing if my body can be trained to run more than a mile without shutting down.
still has not learned how to walk on a leash, im wondering if she ever will. has become even more clingy since we came to Minneapolis. growls everytime she hears someone walking in the apartment above us ( which is all day). and is totally obsesesd with Chris, when he comes home she does not leave his side. and she is slowly but surely getting bigger.

Luke absolutely loves bath time! every night at 7 I start getting him ready for bath and its like he knows whats coming, if he was crying and i lay him on his towel by the sink to undress him he becomes instantly happy. he could stay in all day if i let him, nevertheless bedtime routine must continue after bath so it enevitably always ends.
