Busy busy busy!

Luke here taking over the blog since Mommy and Daddy are so tired. Mom feels bad for not having posted anything for a while, but she and Daddy have been busy looking for houses while showing ours. There were some people here this morning that sure seemed to like it, so we hope to get an offer tomorrow. I'd cross my fingers if I knew how...

...but instead I CRAWL! Man, I got the hang of it just a few weeks ago, and now I am everywhere! Mommy doesn't let me go to my favorite things (like cords and Hannah's tail), but I still find a way to have fun. Here I am modeling one of my two swimsuits. I can't wait for summer vacation!

What Mommy didn't realize before this photo shoot is that it isn't always a good idea to take pictures of me when it's just a few minutes before I'm supposed to eat. I tried to show my displeasure with her idea, first with relative subtlety.

When my pouty face didn't work, I tried a teenager, "You are so stupid, I don't even know how you function" look.

Finally, tired of negotiating, I let her have it.

Mom got the message. She fed me some lunch, and after a bottle and a change of clothes, we were good friends once again.

Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well! Thank you for reading my blog!

Love, Luke

Gettin' a move on...

Good news - there is a "For Sale" sign in front of our house! It feels good, too, since our past three weekends have consisted of packing (as Luke demonstrated above), moving boxes and furniture to storage, and cleaning and straightening up to get things "show ready." What happens from here, of course, is anyone's guess, but at least we're moving in the right direction. This will be a big lesson on patience - not one of my finer virtues, that's for sure - but hopefully at the end of the road, we'll be in a nice new house!

Luke is doing great - or at least he was until he got this nasty cold. I initially thought it was teething, as he had all the symptoms (drool, low grade fever, fussiness, etc.). But after we pulled an all nighter last night and not even Motrin could console the little guy, I knew we needed to see the doctor. Now that we're pumping some Benadryl into him, Luke is doing much better. This little funk has been a setback in his crawling progress, but I suspect he'll be moving around before we know it! (As long as it takes to post pictures, he could be crawling by the time I finish this post!) Luke is growing more fascinated than ever with Hannah. He smiles at her and "pets" her ("pet" = tug on her collar and ears). Fortunately, Hannah tolerates his affection at the very least.

qwaA` <---- That's from Luke, by the way. Did I mention he also loves the computer? He also loves the remote control, as you see here...

Here are some other images of late April and early May.
Luke's Easter Sunday outfit, which he's modeling using a strange hand pose.

Luke at Granny's birthday celebration. Check out those big blue peepers.

My eight month old yesterday for his bear and chair pose.

awqaa <------ More of Luke's musings here. I'm pretty sure that's Luke-speak for, "Thanks for checking out my blog! Have a great week!"
