And Queens' own Mr. Met
Just look at similar blue eyes and wide smile. It's uncanny.
Despite lots of hot weather, it was a fun weekend for everyone, and Luke was happy to meet his Aunt for the first time.
Here Amy gives a first-person perspective on why football teams that play under domes are ultimately doomed.
Perfected with her other two nephews, Amy demonstrates her excellent ability to put little ones to sleep.
Thanks for the visit!
Coming next: Luke visits the pool and passes out like a party guy in Mexico.

Luke has progressed from flopping over when he sits up to being able to lean against something and sort of support himself. He is a long way from being able to really sit up, but is getting there. His new way to pass the time is to sit in his boppy seat and bobble around and drool.
Even better than just sitting in the seat is sitting closer to eye level. In an attempt to get some groceries put away in the kitchen, Paul put him in the boppy, on the stove. Rather than realizing that Dad was breaking every child safety rule possible, Luke decided that sitting on the stove was about the most fun he had ever had.
He looks scared of the plastic bag in this shot, but shortly before was laughing and laughing.
Whoever can find the most safety hazards first wins the chance to call protective services.
Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

Maine was packed with fun and adventures. Paige and Paul indulged in steamers and lobster at Robert's Maine Grill, where Grammy & Grandpap's favorite waitress gave them lots of free treats on top of the delicious seafood in honor of Luke's first visit. Paige didn't share any of her steamers with anyone.
The real purpose of the visit, though, was for Luke to spend lots of quality time with Grammy and Grandpap, and that he did. They were all fast friends who had lots and lots of fun together, as you'll see below.
Luke found his Grandpap to be HILARIOUS.
Grammy was still asleep - so Grandpap got to hold him for a while.
Our family friends, John & Cathy Marr, came to visit while Luke was in residence at 7 Bayberry. They brought him the hottest infant toy - the O Ball. O, does he love it. Thanks, Cathy & John!
I have always joked that once Paul crosses the Piscataqua River Bridge into Maine, he immediately grows sleepy and MUST nap once he's at my parents'. Here, he teaches Luke a Proud Casey Tradition.

A few weeks ago we joined Aunt Tanya and Uncle Rob at Hoboken's BEST ITALIAN RESTAURANT (and there will be no debate on this fact), Leo's Grandevous. Mom & Dad were reacquainted with their menu favorites, and Luke put on his F is for Frank t-shirt for the occasion.
...and eventually he gave up on that endeavor entirely and just spit it out. One of these days, he will actually nap in his crib (but as long as he continues to sleep in there at night, I will not complain. Too much).
