Luke at two months

He turned two months a few weeks ago, so its about time I post some new photos.

Here are some fun facts about Luke:

*At his two-month doctor appointment:
11 lbs, 12 oz <--50% percentile
24.5 inches <--90% percentile

*Beginning to hold his head up like a champ and loves the Bumbo.

*This little man smiles all the time.

*He's starting having "conversations" where we coo and he coos back.

*Claire and Luke get along wonderfully. She's such a good big sister.

*Luke loved the fireworks on the 4th. He just stared at the sky.

*He started sleeping through the night (10 pm - 6 am) at 6 weeks and hasn't looked back.

*He can't help but smile even when he's sad.

*And at 10 weeks, he sleeps 12 hours with one feeding at 7 am. He loves his sleep just like his sister.

*He seems to like the shower better than the bath.

*Started wearing his first pair of shoes and kicks them off constantly, just like his socks.

*We're not sure if he's going to be a binky-lover like Claire, he's started sticking his thumb in sometimes.

*He is starting to have more time awake: usually eating for 20 minutes, staying awake for about 45 minutes, then sleeping for two hours until we start all over again.

We love our Luke-ster!

Luke's 4-week photo shoot

I'm attempting to catch up with the month of June. You'll notice with all the posts below. So even though Luke is now two months old, I'm posting a few of the photos from his 4-week photo shoot that I never got posted. Two-month photos and stats to come soon!

He held this pose for probably three minutes straight.

Glitter Toes!

Claire and I got to have our first GNO. We both went and got glitter toes. Claire loved the whole process. I loved documenting the whole process.

First you have to choose your glitter. Claire picked "Pink Cadillac" with no hesitation.

Putting on the gel...

Then the glitter...

Next, into the machine that sets the gel...

More gel...

A top coat...

And voila! Glitter toes.

A little Fro Yo afterwards and this night = the best GNO I've ever had.

Field Trip 2 - Ogden Dinosaur Park

Claire's second preschool field trip was so fun! We went to the Eccles Dinosaur Park in Ogden. We'd never been before and I can't tell you how much I wish it was closer to us. We would definitely buy a pass.

Inside the museum (which is pretty tiny, but the kids still liked it)

Mike (my bro-in-law) took the kids all over and would ask them to say every dinosaur's name. Try saying Massospondylus ten times fast.

Claire and Drew at the Dinosaur Dig. They are pointing at the T-Rex.

Annie hanging out in the stroller.

Claire, me, and Luke (in the stroller) under the big dino.

Family shot of my sister's fam.

Cute Luke was happy just to be outside.

We spent the rest of the time at the fun park(s) inside the park.

Claire was loving the swings!

Bye Dinos!

Father's Day

Father's Day was so great this year. We made Nate breakfast in bed (and I'm so mad - I can't find those pics), opened a few presents and then went to church. We tried to keep it pretty relaxing because Nate had run the Ragnar Relay the day before. Needless to say, he was tired. After church we went to my parent's for a BBQ. Here's our family shot that day:

When we showed up, all three boys were dressed in green-striped shirts.
Corgan, Luke and Drew.

Claire and Luke

Here's just a fun shot I got of my mom playing Ring Around the Rosies with the kids.

I have to end with father and son. Love these boys.

Nate's Ragnar Relay

I'm so proud of Nate for running his first Ragnar Relay Race! The poor guy ended up with the "Ragnar Hill" which was 4.5 miles STRAIGHT uphill. He did so awesome! Here are some photos they snapped along the way to document the race.

All of Van #2 (minus Nate!)

The whole team at the finish line! (Too bad that guy stuck his elbow in the picture)

Nate, Luke and I at the finish line.

Great job babe! Up next...St George Marathon!

Swimming with cousins

My sis-in-law lives in a neighborhood with a community pool. We try to make use of it a lot in the summer. Here's one of the first times we went in June.
These cousins are best buddies.

Drew shooting the water...

Corgan almost getting hit (but not caring)...

And Claire just prancing around the pool...

We love summer.
