Maybe the Pete Seeger Song Is Sinking In?

Luke is now officially walking more than crawling (and he hardly ever rolls anymore at all!). Here he forgoes his bazillion toys (per usual) and finds happiness with an empty Cheetos bag with a Kleenex in it. (what? Cheetos are good!) He then shocks Mom & Dad at the end proving both cognitive and manual dexterity.*

*Ignore the lack of childproofing.

Luke has started to toddle a little on his over the past few weeks - and he finally let us capture him here. Once with pants, once sans. And all of this after being declared not only the cutest baby in Hoboken, but the most well-behaved, too. By a total stranger. Not his mom (though she agrees. 100%).

Baby Talk

Just today, Luke unveiled a new...um....word? He told Mom this very earnestly and forcefully when she picked him up at daycare, and Dad then said he had been saying this during his morning ride as well. Even his caregiver, Mercedes, had to agree that this was unusually emphatic, even for Luke.

He wouldn't show Mom his belly here (he's not a trained monkey, afterall), but he says his new phrase, ball, and "ba-ba", which is Luke for belly or belly button (we're not sure which).

Happy Birthday Grammy, Fin

So despite our big, bold promises, Mom & Dad had an EPIC FAIL when it came to getting Grammy's present into the mail before this week. We have now heard word that she has received the present (and any of you who visit Grammy's kitchen can enjoy her loot), and so here is Luke helping to wrap her present with Mom. This will explain why the wrapping job was perhaps a little worse for the wear upon receipt.

Let's all pretend that Luke didn't get crud all over his pants & require some mis-matched PJ pants to get him through until bathtime, OK? Thanks.

Holding Court

True, Luke's table manners need some work, but here he holds court last weekend after a lovely breakfast of blueberry muffins, a banana, milk, and cereal. He also breaks out his new favorite word: hi. Except he makes it about 14 syllables.
