Harvest Time

I'm excited to be home for harvest this year! It's always been one of my favorite times of the year and it's been a while now since I got to be around for it. There's just something about it...there's a mixture of excitment and tension in the air to try to get it all done before the next rain (or hail) storm passes through. Probably hard to understand unless you grew up with it. This year is looking pretty good, even with a slight rain delay. We took Luke to visit the field...he is going to LOVE it when he is old enough to ride in the combine with Grandpa and in the wheat truck with Uncle Matt.

Eigsti Family Fun

Last week, Luke got to meet his Great Grandma and Grandpa Eigsti and cousin Nathan. He also got to play with his adorable cousins Kayla and Ethan as well!

Rolling Places...Meeting New People

Luke has been through lots of firsts this past month! He did great during our move to Kansas and met lots of new people along the way!

Back on Memorial Day, Luke rolled over for the first time!

First time getting his diaper changed in the trunk!

During our drive from Cleveland to Kansas, he met his Uncle Matt and Aunt Sarah in Indianapolis...

and his "Uncle" Pete and "Aunt" Linzi in Chicago...

and Aunt Cherise,

Uncle Micah and Aunt Shanna,
and cousins Kayla and Ethan in Omaha!
Then in Kansas, he met Grandpa Nisly,

cousins Andrew and Jonathan,
and Aunt Tanya and Uncle Keith (not pictured). He briefly mistook Uncle Keith for Daddy since they both have dark hair, and then pouted when he realized it wasn't Daddy. :)

First bath in the "big boy bath" with Grandma Nisly
First time falling asleep at the table with Grandpa Eigsti
First time being able to grab his toes this week!
And this one, just for fun.
