Luke is 6 months old

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

Time has flown so quickly.. My little guy is already half a year. Parenthood has been the greatest gift in the world. Everyday is filled with something new, smiles, giggles, milestones, new facial expressions, and loud whining :).. I wouldn’t want to miss one of them. I am so blessed and lucky to stay home with Luke and experience all the day to day changes he does. He has changed so much, when I look back at pictures it brings tears to my eyes looking at how small he was. Luke is definitely not a little guy his stats are off the charts!

But we got some cute pictures individually with Lukey!! Got to love his hair.. So long on top, I just don’t want to cut it, I love it!!

Scottsdale Family Trip

Last week we got to fly to Arizona to have a mini family vacation. It was so nice to relax  and do whatever we wanted. We usually have a itinerary when we go on our family trips, but this one we could do whatever we felt like doing. We could lay by the pool, go to the spa, shop. We loved it. Scottsdale is the greatest city for food, entertainment, and shopping 🙂 I am in love 🙂 We went out to some yummy restaurants and ate way to much of course!!! We also went to a movie where we had our individual sofa seats and dinner served to us while watching the movie.. All of this was done with Luke being the best baby ever.. He watched the beginning of Pirates of the Caribbean and then slept in my lap for the remainder of the movie.. YES!!

So grateful to have married such an incredible man with such an amazing family! Love you ALL!!

5 Months Old

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

5 Months old… Well I am a little late he’s actually 5 1/2 months now. I am so in love with this little man, I truly feel so blessed to be his mom. Lukey was quite the sleeper about a month ago, since he turned 4 months I have yet to see him sleep through the night. I feel like the walking dead everyday haha ..  I am hoping that now that we are starting rice cereal sleeping will become a thing of new..
