Luke quickly found out that he had a partner in crime. If you needed to track him down, you could usually find him on Grandpap's lap.
Note the hobo toy in his hands, thanks to Grammy. That's right, it's a lid to one of those free Good Seasonings cruets.
He also enjoyed rolling around the living room, and quickly found out that banging the handles on the china cabinet is all kinds of fun. Don't let the innocent smile fool you.
He also enjoyed lots of stories...
...and more than that, playing with the things he found in Grandpap's shirt pocket
Coming up in post number II... Luke falls asleep on Grammy, explores more pockets and ties a fly.

After weeks of failed attempts and baby-sized frustration, Luke has figured out how to roll from his back to his front AND from his front to his back - and can now hit "repeat" for minutes on end.
Here, we have captured him in his element:

There is nothing terribly original about this clip, but Luke has mastered and even delights in a rousing game of peek-a-boo now. He'll peek-a-boo around newspapers, magazines, pillows, even corners. In this video you will also see him dismantle his booster seat, thus rendering the "dishwasher safe, removable top for easy cleaning!" useless and requiring mom to wash the dang tray underneath every night.

We think we may have taught Luke his first trick? We were listening to yesterday's Green Bay/Bears game as a family, and when the Packers scored, we cheered "yayyyy Packers!" Luke responded by clapping and cheering to the best of his ability. And then kindly kept it going long enough for Mom to catch it on film.

After charming our favorite waitress, Luke got right down to business, supplementing his baby food dinner with lots and lots of meatloaf and mashed potatoes.
As you can see from the mess, he wasn't shy about eating right off the table
Despite all appearances, he only drank out of the blue bottle
Luke was sure to get every last bit of the meatloaf
Finally, exhausted from all of the German goodness, Luke had to take a break.

This past Sunday we went out into the blustery fall day to take Luke out to lunch & for a trip to the playground. After some time on the swings, Luke was chilly, so we all headed home. He and Dad then had a snuggle under Luke's new quilt from his friends, Jen Bonnell and her mom, Mizz Karen. They enjoyed some cozy time and busted out his Little Bear book from Grandma & Grandpa Casey.

Squint a bit, imagine Luke has an earing, and tell me you don't see the resemblance.

We miss you already Mom!

And the little girl in line ahead of us was more than glad to entertain him with her dance moves and musical Barbie...Then he played with the shakey bottle - which was praised twice today for its ingenuity. (I know, who knew?)
