Christmas lights

At a park we like to go to, they have a greenhouse and they decorate it with lights. We went this year and it was pretty cool. Next year we need to not go on the last day in the last 2 hours that it was open because it was pretty busy. We had fun and I brought a thermos of hot chocolate that came in handy when we had to wait outside for a few minutes before we went in. Lucas liked touching the plants and the lights.

A visit to see Santa

We took Lucas to see Santa a few days ago fully expecting him to cry and not like Santa. That was not the case. He loves men and Santa didn't scare him. It was so cute. We were so proud of him. We are so happy with how the pictures turned out. Lucas looks adorable. His moose sweater is so perfect too. I hope you enjoy these pictures too!
Merry Christmas

14 months old

This little guy is 14 months old. I just weighed him this morning and on our scale it says that he is 19.6lbs. When we try to get his jammies on at night he loves to jump up and run around in his diaper until we catch him. And he usually steals one of our phones. We still have him in his infant carseat, but we did look at them the other day so he will soon be upgraded to a convertible carseat. Very fancy.
Lucas now has 12 teeth. His molars all popped in, no wonder why he has been such a drooler lately. He walks like a pro and is getting really fast. He learned how to climb down the stairs only after a couple tumbles. He loves opening the cupboards that has the pots and pans in it. He will pull out a pot and lid and play with it for a long time, several times a day. He likes brings us things: pots, toys, stuffed animals, books, anything. We know he is tired when he brings us a book and climbs into our laps. The other day Ryan was laying on the floor and Lucas just laid down and snuggled up to him. He is such a sweet boy. This morning he was playing and then just came back to me and cuddled on me. Those are some of my favorite moments.

We put the Christmas tree up a couple of weeks ago when Lucas was asleep. When he first saw it, he was really surprised. He doesn't bother it too much. We have a nativity that he can play with and we find pieces to that all over the house. Christmas is only 10 days away! We love Jesus Christ and are trying to teach Lucas, starting at a very young age, the reason for Christmas. We hope that everyone has a happy and safe holiday season.
