Lucas videos

Lucas likes to dance by just waving his hand. He gets up on the chair and turns on the music and then does his dance. This was the best video we could get of him "dancing" last night:

We quizzed Lucas on his different body parts. He does a pretty good job:

Trip and a new cousin

My younger sister just had her first baby about a month ago. Lucas and I flew to Denver to go visit and see the little guy. We had a fun time. Lucas loved pointing to the baby and saying "Ohhhhhh." He also said "Baby." Lucas did really well with Baby Beck and it was fun to see him interact with a baby. 

This is my favorite picture of Lucas looking at Beck
It is hard to remember that Lucas was that tiny

We had a really hot day yesterday and we were at some friend's house and they had the pool out. Lucas didn't quite know what to think at first and just put his hands in, but then he started to venture over the side of the pool and into it. He just walked around in it. He had a lot of fun. We will have to get him a mini pool for this summer.

I finally got something to chart Lucas' growth with--a huge ruler! He wasn't being very cooperative and we tried to get his picture next to it many times.

But now to the right is his 19 month picture.

Father/Son Campout

Ryan took Lucas on a Father/Son campout this weekend. Lucas had such a fun time being with the boys. He just wanted to play. Ryan was so happy to be able to take Lucas. Lucas did really well. He even liked being in the backpack for the hike. Lucas was worn out by the time they got home.

Mariners vs. Twins

We left Lucas overnight for the first time this last weekend. We were really nervous about it, but it was time to do it. We left him with my sister and her family. He loved it. He had a lot of fun playing outside and being with them. When we got home he was happy to see us, but then still went to my brother-in-law to have him pick him up. He was so tired when we got home: he slept from 8:15pm-10:00am! He was tired out from playing so much!

Lucas' favorite babysitter, my 12 year old niece

He fell asleep at church, something he rarely does with us

While in Seattle, we went to Mariners-Twins games (M's win!)

Scottie gave Lucas this hat, and we have been trying to get him to wear it, sometimes he keeps it on

And then he tries to take it off

Last night Lucas pushed the chair up to the sink and start "helping" with the dishes
