Zoo Trip

Our vacation has been pretty dreary with the weather and all, but we're still having fun. We've been working on the nap schedule and Lucas is doing awesome. He's been a quick learner! However, he used to nap every time he was in his stroller. I learned the hard way that he doesn't nap in the running stroller anymore. He would rather look around and enjoy the scenery. I'll just have to plan our runs around his napping!

Speaking of scenery..we went for our first family trip. We took Lucas to his first visit to the zoo. He really seemed keen on the wolves, but especially liked the birds. They had a birds of prey show with birds flying around us. Lucas would coo and smile when he saw one.

No, Steve we are not getting a bird or a wolf.

6 months old today!

Can you believe Lucas is 6 months old today? I am not sure which is harder to believe..that a 1/2 year has gone by since Lucas came into our lives or that we survived the first 6 months of parenthood.
My last day of school was Thursday and Lucas and I have been enjoying our time together. Our weekend was packed full of fun! On Saturday we went to Michael's first birthday. Lucas didn't seem too impressed with the festivities, but I was! Jeannie (Michael's mom) had a dinosaur themed party. She made a homemade dino cake and some dino cookies. I even dressed Lucas up in a dinosaur outfit (he looked cute, if I do say so myself). Now, I have to start thinking about Lucas's 1st birthday...Any ideas?

On Sunday we celebrated Father's day with our families. Lucas was very pleased with the gift he picked out for Steve. He got daddy a custom made bike t-shirt and a gift certificate to go scuba diving (I think Steve was happy that no ties were given). Happy Father's Day Steve!

Steve and decided to start Lucas on baby food. Our doc said to wait until 6 months, but what's two weeks!?!? Lucas is loving the food. We started him on sweet potato and now he is onto carrots. He actually cries and fusses when I don't feed him fast enough. Take a look at the video:

Did you notice the onesie Lucas is wearing? Daddy wasn't too pleased with it, but Lucas and I were very pleased! It's from Auntie Sandra and Auntie Holly gave him a onesie just like it too. Doesn't he have the best aunts?
