Catching Up

As others have said recently, I have lots of pictures and events to share, not to mention some topics in my head to discuss. This summer is absolutely flying by, and I feel like I'm desperately clinging to it. In recent years I've never been so conscious of wanting to freeze time.  But I do. This summer could go on an on as far as I'm concerned.

I'm going to try to catch up with one event at a time.

So let's start with Luke's birthday. My Dad and Sue came to visit and have cake with us. We grilled, played outside, opened gifts and sang. I love birthdays.

Here's what I've noticed about boys: they like to make noises. They get around to words eventually, but they really enjoy noises.

He looked bewildered while we sang, but he can clap with the best of them. (Katy was upset that she didn't get to lick the candle)

He enjoyed his cake more than my others on their first birthdays. Shoved it in like a champ.

Poor third child: he got clothes and a cleaned-up, hand-me-down car seat for this birthday. But I honestly couldn't think of a single toy that he could need. Grandma and Grandpa did give him a toy car, and he knew exactly what to do with it, sliding it around on the floor and saying, "Vrrrrrrrrrrrr..."

Finally, a little video to see his newest trick. He has no desire to walk when he can do all this!
