Love us some snow.

The first big snowfall was in mid-November and Claire was loving it.

Then she thought it'd be fun to "sneak up" on Nate's truck (he was still at church) and throw a snowball at it. Here she is "sneaking up."

She's not much of a thrower. More like a presser.

"Ha ha ha! Got it!" So proud of herself.

happy thanksgiving!

I realize that I haven't blogged about September yet, but it seems too daunting to go back...I'm going to try to do it next week though!

I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving planned. I asked Claire what she was grateful for and this was her list...keep in mind that this is verbatim:
~Mommy (I'll take that!)
~My buddy, Luke
~Boo (her stuffed animal from Monsters Inc)
~God (I love that she said God, not Heavenly Father)
~That she can make Luke smile
~Pictures (so proud this made her list)

Ahhh...the simple joys.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving

Luke is six months!

I can't believe how much faster time flies with your second child. The Lukey-man is officially six months old. He's been sitting like a champ for a few weeks and he smiles every time you look at him, which means his pictures super easy.

Some of his favorite things to do are:
-Sit by himself
-Smile, especially when Claire comes to get him from his nap
-Eat anything we feed him
-Sleep - he still sleeps 18-19 hours a day
-Take baths with his sister, although he doesn't like water dumped on his head
-Smile :)

Weight: 16.5 lbs 48th percentile
Height: 28 inches 85th percentile

Love that bum. :)

Luke's first two teeth came in within five days of each other. The only reason I knew was when he was opening his mouth for a bite and I saw it. Then the next one came in. He's such a chill little dude. Must take after his dad. :)
