So Big!!!!

Luke has recently started waving "hi" and "bye" which of course I wasn't able to get on film!! However...I WAS able to get him to so "So big" for me and I just had to share. He really is "so big" and it blows our minds every single day. He is the light of our lives.....we had NO idea it would be this much fun :-)

First Trip to the Park!





We have been so blessed with some early beautiful days here in East Tennessee. Joe and I thought it would be great to take Luke and Kona to the park. Luke had never been before and he had such a blast (except the one time Joe made him think he was going down the slide alone!)! The day inspired us to get Luke a swing for our backyard. He absolutely loves it!

New Faces






Luke has learned some great new faces and it has made for hours of laughter for me and Joe!!! I was able to catch a few of them and also a few cute ones of him checking himself out in the mirror!

Another Surprise Trip to Michigan


Well, we surprised Grammy for the second time! Mom and Grandma Westwood were supposed to drive down to visit us in Tennessee but that plan changed when mom fell and had to have knee surgery! She called to tell us she wouldn't be coming and was in tears because she wouldn't get to spend the week with Luke. We were so excited to have them here and since they couldn't come here, we decided to go there. Dad picked us up at the airport and we were back to their house before 10am. Luke is a great flyer and was perfect on the plane! Mom and Grandma were both so surprised and we had a wonderful weekend. I even took out Luke one afternoon to meet my friend Cathy and Brad and Nicole for a few hours. I think he's excited about going to Michigan when the snow goes away and it's a little bit warmer!

February Firsts


February was full of a lot of firsts for Mr. Luke. His first tooth poked through, he experienced his first official "snow day" where school was cancelled and he got his first haircut! We hesitated about getting his haircut so early but it was SO fluffy before. We were so glad we did it when it was done! Such a handsome boy!<

Visit to Michigan



One weekend in the middle of January we decided to take a trip to Michigan. Luke stayed with Grammy and Grampy while Joe and I went to a comedy show with Brad and Nicole and spent the night with them at their house in Royal Oak. We had so much fun! It was great for us to have a night out and great for Luke to spend that time with mom and dad.

Bath Time!


One of Luke's most favorite times is his bath time. As soon as he was able to sit up and play, it became a lot more fun! He loves to splash and it makes a huge mess in the bathroom but it's so worth it to see him laugh!
