Movin' and Groovin'

One happy family!This is Luke on our walk the other day. He got a nap and mommy got some fresh air and exercise. All was right with the world.
In case you didn't notice his incredible eyelashes in the shot above, here is a close up! He was born with short stubby ones, and then one morning I discovered he had grown these long, luscious lashes (totally wasted on a boy, by the way), but they are so cute. Looks like he has something in common with his cousin Jonathan!
This is his new thing. When I start talking to him and try to get him to smile he gets this little shy smile and puts his hand up to his face like that. So. Cute.
Our smiley sweetie pie. He's also juuust starting to giggle a little bit, but not all the time. Can't wait for those belly laughs to start!
He can hold a toy now! And he's really more excited about it than it looks, promise.
This is Mr. Luke during his favorite pastime: bathtime. What could be more delightful than getting to be naked and splashing water everywhere? Nothing, that's what. He can be super fussy, but put him in some water and he is the happiest baby in the universe.
This is my favorite outfit ever. He is adorable in it!
So I realize I've been slacking and haven't put many pictures of Luke up lately...but for those of you in Kansas, you soon can watch him grow up before your very eyes! Yup, Chad and I are moving to Hutchinson in 2 very short weeks! Chad has accepted an associate pastor postion at Maranatha. We are excited about this next chapter in our lives and look forward to being near family again! See you all soon!

Happy Anniversary!

Today Chad and I celebrate 3 years of marriage! My, how quickly time does fly by! I am still in awe at times how God ended up bringing us together. His timing is always right! I am truly fortunate and thankful for my wonderful husband. He's the love of my life!

Super Dad and Chunky Monkey

Last week I was attacked by some sort of vicious stomach flu, so in swooped Super Dad Chad to save the day! (Sidebar: there really should be some sort of law that states that mommies do not get sick. It's just wrong. End of sidebar.) Luke happened to have his 2 month check-up, so Chad stayed home from work to take him to his appointment and to take care of both of us. Luke had to get shots, so I guess I picked a good one to miss! But, the latest Luke stats...he is now in the *ahem* 95th percentile for weight, coming in at 13 pounds 7 ounces and the 50th percentile for height and head circumference. Whoa! Chad is such a good daddy and took good care of both Mr. Chunk and me all day. Thank you, honey!

Baby Boom!

So three of our friends have had babies in the last couple of weeks! Dustin and Peggy had Madison Eve on April 16, Dana and Randy had Wyatt Jacob on April 26, and Mike and Jen had Samuel Daniel on April 29! Congrats to you all! We've had the opportunity to meet Miss Madison and Mr. Sam and are looking forward to meeting Wyatt in Kansas next month! I already can't believe Luke was that small! Enjoy it guys, because as everyone tells you (and I already believe them) goes so fast!
